There was only one option, like any great dancer and business person you need to know when to pivot! But for them, it was gonna be a picante pivot. Ultimately Lee & Kat wanted to bring the energy, diversity, fun and love that over 1/2 a million people have experienced at DCBX & their College shows and bring that flavor into people's homes, & kitchens, because food….. is family. For years, CEO and founder Lee "El Gringuito Smith had been making hot sauce for fun, for family members. "It was nice to give a homemade gift. Little did we know that gift would change our lives."
