A loan of $5,000 helped produce and promote my hand-crafted pepper sauces at festivals and at in-store tastings in Whole Foods.

Jamie's story

Hello, my name is Jamie Glover and anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about life. I love great food, cooking, traveling and creating the dream. As a nine-year-old growing up in Greensboro, North Carolina, I started my first business mowing lawns, doing yard work, and delivering papers. At the time it was so I could have ice cream money, but the teachings of my Grandpa Bill Glover and my mother Beverly always focused on working hard, putting an idea into action and being responsible for myself.

Today I work hard in a nine-to-five job, working the phones as a salesman, and I work hard to achieve a good life. However, I have a passion for food, so over the last year I began spending any extra time I had creating and developing a line of pepper relishes. I drew flavor inspiration from my North Carolina roots, the multicultural city of DC where I have lived for 30 years, and my wife's Kenyan and Indian background. My sauces began to build a following, and so with a membership to Union Kitchen I set forth on a mission to launch a condiment company with unique and delicious products.

I have never chosen a life where I simply do what has been done before, and I won’t start now. My sauces, my spicy vinegar and new spice rub are handcrafted and yummy additions to the condiment selections on any dining table. It is my goal to change peoples’ ideas about the condiments we use. Glover’s Pepper Sauce is my passion. I dedicate what I do to my Grandfather who was always there for me as a father figure. He is still with me today, and tickled that I have his flight crew from WW2 on the bottle, and the artwork from the bomber as my logo. Bill Glover taught me to be a good solid guy who works hard, never expects anything given to him and most of all to puts everything he has into everything he does.
