The newest chapter of our story begins with Maureen Porzio, the great- great-grandaughter of John D. Porzio I. She had grown up making the family's sauce with her dad and grandfather and she decided she wanted to bottle it up for others to enjoy. In 2011, her grandfather, John Porzio IV, gave her his blessing to pursue her passion to revive the family recipes during his final hours. She spent the next year perfecting the bottling process while also studying at the College of Charleston. It was during this time at the College that she met Kaitlyn Ervin, who would first become an intern and eventually a full-time partner. Together, Maureen and Kaitlyn expanded both the product line (check out our delicious basil pestos and naturally sweetened ketchup) and distribution footprint (now available in retailers throughout the Southeast).
