Winston-Salem based Texas Pete company introducing new Mexican-style hot sauce
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — TW Garner Food Co. is introducing a new hot sauce: ¡Sabor! by Texas Pete Mexican-style hot sauce will hit stores in mid-February, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.
Just as Garner developed a CHA! Texas Pete Sriracha sauce, an Asian-style hot sauce, more than two years ago, it decided to develop a Mexican hot sauce after studying that segment of the hot-sauce market.
“Cholula is really unopposed as the premium Mexican hot sauce,” said Steve DeCorte, Garner’s executive vice president of sales. “We see a decent void in the Mexican hot-sauce category.”
DeCorte said market data showed that Texas Pete customers already buy Mexican and other hot sauces. “If there’s a Texas Pete customer walking down that market aisle, there’s a 70 percent chance they are also buying Mexican hot sauce,” he said.
