SAUCE COMPANY BRINGS AWARENESS TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE  

Forestville, NY (10/26/09) – Burning Asphalt Sauces, a locally based specialty food company, recently announced their commitment to bring awareness to the seriousness of domestic violence and homelessness in Western New York and NE Pennsylvania. They will be offering several products that will have a limited edition label that promotes awareness to this serious epidemic.  

“Knowing the fact that one out of every four women in America will experience domestic violence at some point in her lifetime is ample reason to bring attention to this commonly overlooked epidemic,” said Jeffrey Furash, President/CEO of Burning Asphalt Sauces. “There is also a direct correlation between domestic abuse and homelessness that needs to be addressed.” The idea to promote awareness of domestic abuse and homelessness came to Furash when he was on a recent promotional road trip. A woman who had been abused mentioned to Furash the trauma that still haunts her today from an incident that took place over 20 years ago. A portion of the proceeds at the event that Burning Asphalt Sauces participated in was donated to a domestic violence and homelessness organization. 

The limited edition labels on selected sauces will feature artwork created by domestic violence victims. The company is also accepting artwork and poetry from victims to be featured anonymously on future labels. For more information on the awareness program, contact Burning Asphalt Sauces at www.BurningAsphalt.com.

Burning Asphalt Sauces is also the founding company of “Sauces For Soldiers.” This non-profit program started in 2003 and provides overseas troops sauces, rubs, and snacks.

BURNING ASPHALT PROVIDES TROOPS A TASTE OF HOME

 Forestville, NY (12/06/07) – A love of this country and the desire to support our overseas troops has served as a catalyst for Burning Asphalt Sauces, LLC to create a non-profit program named “Sauces for Soldiers.”  Founded by Jeff Furash, President of Burning Asphalt Sauces and Marilyn Sticek, Forestville, NY Postmaster, this program has been providing overseas troops non-perishable sauces, snacks, and spices since 2003. The program is entirely non-government supported and funded by Burning Asphalt Sauces and friends. There is never a charge to our overseas armed forces. 

For the past few years, Burning Asphalt Sauces, a Forestville, NY gourmet specialty food manufacturer and distributor, has offered a limited number of collectible holiday gift packs to support a variety of non-profit organizations and charities. The proceeds from this year’s collectible gift pack will go directly to “Sauces for Soldiers” to help defray shipping costs overseas. 

This special Collector Edition gift pack will feature three of their popular gourmet sauces sporting a “Sauces for Soldiers” label. Included will be a hot sauce, barbeque sauce, and salsa. Also included will be a Military Snowman holiday ornament. “As always we are very excited to be in a position to give our support to our overseas troops for all they have done for our country. The very least we can do is provide them a little taste of home,” said Mr. Furash. The special Collector Edition gift packs and individual collector bottles can be purchased directly from Burning Asphalt Sauces by emailing them through their website, www.BurningAsphalt.com or www.SaucesForSoldiers.com .

BURNING ASPHALT SAUCES A WINNER

5/31/2007 - Burning Asphalt Sauces, LLC of Forestville has received multiple awards for its home-style specialty food products. The small-batch private label and signature brand producer and distributor provides a full line of specialty food products to farm markets, country stores, grocery stores, wineries, roadside stands and specialty stores nationwide.

The “Wise Choice” line-up awards were recently presented in Arizona to Jeffrey Furash, President/CEO of the company, for their barbecue sauces, salsas, and mustards. Several of their other products, including their spaghetti sauces, hot sauces, wing sauce, and pepper products have received awards as well. The awards were based on taste, appearance, aroma, and packaging. Also taken into consideration was the basis of originality of the company and what the company gives back to the community. The one-of-a-kind trophy is unique in the fact that it is a true representation of the Southwestern area in which the awards were presented.

Burning Asphalt Sauces, LLC is the result of Furash owning a business called Burning Asphalt Racetracks. “Patrons of the racetracks used to joke about the name and how it would be a great name for a hot sauce,” he said.

After hearing this for several years, Furash decided to develop a hot sauce with the Burning Asphalt name. His goal was to produce a hot, flavorful sauce with integrity, quality, freshness and a dedication to balancing heat and flavor. The design was simple. The result was a highly praised and satisfying Habanero hot sauce. The first batch sold out immediately. A second batch was produced which sold out as well. Furash then decided to add two additional hot sauces; Jalapeno and Garlic Habanero. These were also successes.

The company now produces and distributes over 100 products, including snack foods such as hot and spicy cashews, peanuts, and Cajun mix. Don’t let the Burning Asphalt name fool you. The majority of their products are not hot at all. Besides the Burning Asphalt Sauces brand name, they recently acquired Twisted Vine Gardens and High Peaks Sauce Company.

With national distribution and an ever-increasing customer base came several requests from business owners to put their name and message on the fine quality Burning Asphalt products. A private-label program was then developed. “We wanted to make our private label program affordable for all types of outlets. In doing so we decided that there would be no minimums, no set-up fees, and no graphic charges for a standard private label. We do our own in-house printing of labels, therefore making it economical for a store to build its own brand and create consumer loyalty” Furash said. “Our fine quality home-style products are shelf stable and fast selling. Your customers will feel as if your products came direct from grandma’s kitchen.”

Burning Asphalt Sauces was recently recognized for its “Sauces for Soldiers” program which involves sending care packages containing sauces to deployed troops overseas. “This is the kind of project we love to embrace,” Furash said. “Providing troops a little taste of home and words of encouragement is a great way to show our support and gratitude for everything they do.”

Burning Asphalt Sauces wins Chili Cook-Off and Donates Money to Charity

Forestville, NY – Burning Asphalt Sauces, LLC of Forestville swept both categories of the Cherry Creek Fall Festival Chili Cook Off this past weekend while raising money for charity. The award winning chili was an original recipe created by Marilyn Sticek of Forestville, a consultant to the company for product development.

Ms. Sticek’s “Sweet & Hot Garlic” chili, a flavorful blend of garlic, habanero peppers, spices, and meat seasoned with Burning Asphalt Sweet & Hot Garlic hot sauce, earned rave reviews from the attendees. “This chili was the best I have ever tasted. Initially it had a sweet garlic taste and then the heat snuck up, but not so hot that it would burn your mouth out,” said Carla Desimone of N.Tonawanda, NY.

The “People’s Choice” category award winner was determined by which chili entry collected the most money from the attendees. After sampling the various chili recipes, attendees would vote by placing money in a bin next to their favorite choice. Ms. Sticek’s chili won this category by 66%. The “Judge’s Overall Best Chili” category was also won by Ms. Sticek. The award money Ms. Sticek received was matched by Burning Asphalt Sauces and donated to charity.

Messages in Bottles - Forestville firm, post office send care packages overseas

Forestville, NY - Burning Asphalt Sauces LLC. Provides Care Packages to Deployed Troops
Burning Asphalt Sauces, LLC. of Forestville, NY and employees of the Forestville Post Office have joined forces to send care packages to deployed troops overseas.  The joint venture entails writing letters of encouragement to soldiers as well as sending specific items for care packages. Once enough items are collected, Postmaster  Marilyn Sticek along with her employees, help assemble the packages for shipping.

This good humanitarian deed started 12 years ago when Sticek and her employees began writing and shipping essential items to deployed servicemen. When asked what the troops are in need of, Postmaster Sticek says, “Junk food, books, and toiletries seem to be what they miss and request most often.” With the help of Burning Asphalt Sauces, the servicemen will never lack hot sauce and other food items.

“We are very proud of being able to contribute to the program developed by these dedicated postal employees.  We will see to it that every food product we produce, including our signature hot sauces, will end up in the hands of these brave, deserving troops,” states Jeffrey Furash, President of the company. This is a totally self-sufficient program with all shipping expenses paid for by the employees of the Forestville Post Office. The effort was brought about through the desire to provide support and recognition of the immense dedication and commitment of soldiers.

“This is the kind of project we love to embrace,” said Mr. Furash. “Providing troops a little taste of home and words of encouragement is a great way to show our support and gratitude for everything they do,” he says.  Sticek is planning on putting up a display in the lobby of the Forestville Post Office which will provide information on how the general public can help support the troop with letters and care packages.  For additional information or questions on this great effort, please visit www.BurningAsphalt.com.
