Matt Hobbs
Founder and Sauce Wizard

When I set out to create PDX Hot Sauce Company I knew that I wanted to create a brand that brought the culinary world full circle -- focusing on technique, the craft, and our guiding principle of sustainability. It all starts with our community. That is why I chose to source every aspect of this company locally. It begins with curating organic ingredients from our local farms. We source only the finest, sustainably sourced packaging and shipping materials from our neighbors right here in the Pacific Northwest. We choose not to work with a co-packer, as we believe in seeing the process through every single step of the way. I genuinely believe in creating a farm to bottle experience. Our lineup consists of the finest hot sauces available -- deliciously unique and seriously addictive. We try to be more than just a hot sauce company by building impactful and lasting relationships with other local small businesses, craftspeople, and community advocates.

We work really hard to make great sauce and here's what people are saying!

"I have to be honest, as a huge fan of all things spicy, this is hands down the best sauce on the planet. To have not just one, but three solid hits is a tremendous feat. PDX hot sauce is a game changer. The marionberry morita chili is a perfect blend of sweetness and spice. Perfect for seafood. The red jalapeno garlic is now my go to sauce for wings or tenders. The serrano green tomato is my overall favorite. It’s perfect on virtually everything! If you have not ventured to try this exquisite sauce, you are missing out, friend. This sauce will change your life. As all great food should."
"Without question my new favorite sauce company. PDX sent me three incredible flavors that I put on almost everything. My roommates and I can’t get enough of the red jalapeño & garlic.
Not only is PDX an amazing sauce company, but an incredible contributor to their community with the work their owner is doing. I’ll always be a proud supporter and bulk buyer of PDX hot sauce! Can’t wait to see what flavors come out next!!"

"I absolutely LOVE PDX hot sauce motto and what they stand by! They truly have a great business motto! Their packaging is also on point! Super vibrant and eye catching." Lisa D.
"Delicious sauces with great depth of flavor and just the right amount of heat. You can taste the quality and variety of ingredients in a way that you can't with most other hot sauces where everything just kind of blurs into a one note experience. Can't wait for their new flavors! Matt Hobbs is someone to watch in the culinary world. Chase H.
"So compatible with anything! PDX is truly a work of passion and it tastes incredible. My personal favorite is the Serrano for a quick dash on my tacos, sandwich, wings, etc. It will cure your lonely nights and when you’re in need of a spice fix. Customer service can’t be beat as I got my sauces faster than Amazon Prime delivery. Please support this brand!" Vy N.
"Bought all three and they are spectacular! Green goes great on chicken! Red is my go to for literally everything! Just the right amount of heat. 10/10 would buy again!" Dustin B

We're involved.

We are a small group of dedicated people that care about creating and making something special. Our hot sauce is the product of experience, creativity and hard work.  We live in Portland and while we love making hot sauce it's not the only thing we are doing. We are involved in several different projects that are helping our Portland community to survive and thrive during this difficult time. Our main side project is (XXXXX) where we are able to band together with like minded people to produce thousands of meals for our neighbors that need a little help.
