Big Red's

Paul S. Ford

If you're familiar with Big Red's Hot Sauce, then you've probably heard the story of Paul's love for gardening and being the cook of the family!  You may even be familiar with the assignment to Afghanistan where he has the honor to drill water wells for our troops, that led to a new perspective on the American dream.

Although these facts have contributed to the success of Paul's full flavored hot sauce.  Paul attributes the success he has had to something much deeper.

As the son of a Pilot in the Marines, and a college instructor, education and discipline was inevitable.  By the age of 13 he lost his father and he and his brothers would be raised by their mother.  For a time, money was low and stress was high and the temptation to take an easier route was always present.

Growing up on Philly, Paul started to head down the wrong path.  It wasn't until he witnessed many young men and friends his age in prison or worse, that he decided he wanted better.

It was time to turn back to the hard work and discipline he had learned.  His mantra became faith and hard work.  He read, learned new skills, stepped into leadership positions in every career he held.  His accomplishments would eventually lead to: a wife, 3 children and a hot sauce company that you now know as "Big Red's Hot Sauce".  Paul's mission in life is to leave a legacy behind for his children, and to let people know that it is not how you start, but how you finish.  He wants people to know that you can live your best life.  Dreams become goals and goals become reality.  He carries this love and passion in every bottle and is making this world spicier place 1 bottle at a time!
