hope springs
Founder and CEO, Vivian Lea, born in a long line of great cooks, combined her passion for cooking with a personal need to compliment her soup with an equally tantalizing cracker. Vivian experimented with flavor combinations that she shared with her friends. Vivian’s friends enjoyed them so much that they encouraged her to share her crackers with the public. They knew that what she had made was something more than an ordinary cracker.
​ ​Developing recipes for years, Vivian finds cooking to be therapeutic. And now, she is proud to share her crackers with you!

STRETCH says, as far back as he can remember, he’s enjoyed food. His interest was daily, sometimes 2-3 times a day. He was addicted to this — it felt natural. Most people around him were doing it, so he said to himself, why not continue? Eating, along with the urge to create as he got older led to opening 2 restaurants, Grinders & Grinders West, and building sculpture for a living.

Fiber Joe Interviews Lucky Dog Hot Sauce at the 27th Annual Fiery Foods Show

lucky-dog-logo
Lucky Dog Hot Sauce was my hobby for 7+ years. In 2005 I started developing recipes in my kitchen & on the back yard grill. And in June of 2012 I turned it into a small business due to overwhelming demand. I simply could not keep up with all of the people who gobbled it up so fast! Every batch I made, I’d have none left for myself – which was kind of depressing since that’s why I started making it in the first place. So now I’ve found a commercial kitchen to work with and I’m making a lot of it! My goal is simple: always innovate, never imitate.
