John Comeau is the CEO/Founder of Horsetooth Hot Sauce. And he owes his company’s launch to his mother:
“My mother got us hooked on hot sauce when we were young. She used to put it on plain potato chips and we thought it was the best thing ever. I was looking for something more rewarding to do after I turned 30 and brainstormed a bunch of business ideas and decided a craft hot sauce company was the way to go.”
He runs the business with his sister and co-owner, Michael Ann. It’s a brother-sister combo that’s as basic as their pepper-vinegar hot sauce mix. But unlike typical brothers and sisters, they get along fine and agree … especially when it comes to their choice of accounting software.
