Miss Heidi’s Sauce of Franklin County, North Carolina is celebrating one year in business. The first jar of this unique, creamy Chipotle sauce ran off the line on August 1, 2018.

Over twenty years in the making, Heidi Coughlin created the sauce while working as a chef. She prepared the sauce for family and friends, adjusted the recipe along the way, and — with support from family and friends — Heidi and her husband, Geoff, officially released Miss Heidi’s Sauce.

Heidi and Geoff started by selling the jarred sauce at fairs, farmers markets, and festivals. Within a few months, local stores were stocking their product. As a result, it can be found on shelves in The Rusted Hinge Marketplace, Southern Fireflies Art & Boutique, Sugar Magnolia, Wendell General Store, Sycamore Crossings, Mary & Co., and other locations.

The versatile condiment may be added as a topping, stirred into recipes, or used as dip. As Heidi says,

“It is a flavor sauce only limited by your imagination.”

Heidi Coughlin, her family, and the company are based in the Pilot area of Zebulon, North Carolina. Find out more at missheidissauce.com, which includes a list of upcoming events where Heidi’s tasty sauce will be on sale.

This family-run small business is on Facebook at www.facebook.com/missheidissaucenc. It is a Member NC Specialty Foods Association and the Got To Be NC program.
