The History of Eaglewingz Brand Hot Sauces and Delaware Sauce Company.
A little of this and a little of that
Our journey began back in 1988
EagleWingz Brand Hot Sauce Is An Original Flavor Created In 1988 By Delmarva Native Rick Ewing. The Sauce Came Together For Rick While Vacationing With Some Friends. He Took A Little Of This And A Little Of That In About 20 Minutes Or So, And The Original Flavor Hasn’t Changed Much Since. Rick’s Sauce Quickly Became A Hit With Family And Friends Who Would Later Push Him To Bottle And Sell His New Recipe.
Let's start selling some sauce
Sauce for the masses (locally)
Over The Next Couple Years, The Sauce Could Be Found In A Handful Of Local Restaurants, Including Rick’s RC Ribs Where EagleWingz Hot Wings Became A Customer Favorite. 2010 Was The Year Rick Finally Decided To Bottle And Sell His Sauce To The Masses. With a Storefront in Seaford, DE and a New Website, Rick Has Sold Thousands of Bottles And EagleWingz Brand Has Become A Favorite In Many Areas Across Delmarva And Has Even Won A Few Awards Along The Way.
Award winning flavors are born!
