(Toledo News Now) -
A local man's sloppy joes sauce is now being sold in stores.
The recipe has been in Donald Hill's family since 1963.
"When you have a good product, and you know something's good and once people taste it and everybody likes it, and I think I knew that," Hill said.
What he didn't know was how quickly it would catch everyone's attention.
"I was in Afghanistan, and I actually got an MRE, which is a meal ready-to-eat, and a sloppy joe meal was in it and I opened it up and tasted it, and I thought it was awful," he said. "I have a family recipe, so when I got home, I just started working on it."
Hill came back from Afghanistan in February of 2012. He started making changes to his grandmother's recipe and looked at labels and jars. By June of this year, he had created Brickyard Sloppy Joe Sauce.
"Once people tasted it, it just started spreading like wildfire," Hill said. "There's salsa and barbecue sauces that are kind of played, but this is sloppy joe sauce, so besides the few that have been around for 50 years, it's virtually, you know, been the same."
Within a month, Hill was selling his product at Churchill's, Kazmaier's, House of Meats, and Sautter's. He makes about 500 jars every two weeks. Everything that goes into the sauce, and the packaging and manufacturing of it, is local.
Hill says it's the family recipe that has allowed for his success.
"It's different. It's in a glass, so that's another unique thing, and it makes two pounds, so there's some things that set us apart," he said.
