KUSI’s Elizabeth Alvarez was live at the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo happening Sunday in Del Mar.
The GFAF Expos are the largest and fastest growing special diet consumer events in the US.
Started in 2007, the events are professionally managed and have expanded from one to eight cities throughout the United States.
In addition to meeting the needs of the Celiac community, the Expo welcomes those with gluten sensitivities, auto-immune/inflammatory diseases and autism.
Local entrepreneur, Jennifer Reynolds, founder of Sauce Goddess Gourmet Products (www.saucegoddess.com) was recruited to be one of four BBQ sauce company owners to compete for investment dollars on A&E’s national reality television show “Rooster and Butch”.
They came from all over the U.S. and are touted as the best of the best. The Sauce Goddess was the only female entrepreneur among the four competitors.
The Sauce Goddess is very entertaining and passionate about BBQ and business as well as giving back to community. She loves creating and producing all natural and gluten free products that are easy to use for making delicious and healthy dishes for the whole family. Her inspiration was her late father.
The episode of “Rooster and Butch” that Jennifer was featured on is airing Wednesday, February 7, 2018 at 10pm on A&E.
“Butch and Rooster abandon the answering machine to investigate the BBQ sauce; and Rooster handpicks four BBQ contenders to battle it out for an investment of up to one million dollars.”
Cliff Albert thought the three other contestants on Rooster and Butch’s episode of Last Sauce Standing were worried about losing to the Sauce Goddess and voted her off of West Texas’ version of Shark Tank reality show. Listen to Jennifer share tales of her experience on the KOGO radio show and find out how she got into the food business.
Jennifer talks with Mark Larson while hosting the Brett Winterble Show on AM 760 KFMB radio about her Rooster and Butch reality TV experience and how she got the idea to start Sauce Goddess. Hear about the behind the scenes adventures that you won’t see on the A&E investor show. Also, get the back story on how Jennifer was able to transform her dad’s saucy concoction into a national brand.
The Sauce Goddess (aka Jennifer Reynolds) earned an invitation to compete against three other BBQ companies for potential investment money from a couple of West Texas venture capitalists. The popular A&E show Rooster & Butch is the Lone Star State’s version of Shark Tank.
On February 7, 2018 four slathering goodness taste engineers will test their personal limits and commitment to becoming a multi-million dollar company. Tune in to see who gets the cash and which owners go home with an empty platter.
