Sometime during 2016 Art was bartending Saturday morning shifts at a neighborhood bar where he started a Breakfast Club with some of the regulars. A common topic of discussion on these Saturday mornings was hot sauce, and how they all seem to have one thing in common, Vinegar! With a strong dislike of vinegar on his eggs, Art and a couple of the regular attendees of the Breakfast Club set out to find a sauce to bring to back and share with the others. After an extensive search and not finding a vinegar free hot sauce worth sharing with the others, Art had the idea of just making his own. His hot sauce would prove to be something special among his friends and regulars, and Art's Pepper Co. was born. Fast forward 5 years and a pandemic later, A.P.C. officially launched it's website in 2021 and began selling their signature Burn Me sauce (which by the way is 100% Vinegar Free!).
