Under Beth's ownership and vision, George's Sauces has continued to grow. It is one of the most popular barbecue sauces in the Carolinas. George's now has four full-time employees that produce an average of 3500 bottles of barbecue sauce each working day. After cooking up the sauces with their own distinctive ingredients, each bottle is labeled, filled, capped and packed by hand… making George's Sauces the true definition of a "hands-on company."
