After a life spent working in restaurants, I turned 25 and started thinking about what I'd like to do with the rest of my life.
At the time I had a large garden in my backyard, and I was fond of making condiments of all kinds: relish, tomato sauce, barbecue sauce, jam, hot sauce, and ketchup. I love blending flavors and mixing all sorts of seemingly weird combinations. It was through this experimentation that the idea for Merfs was born.
For the most part I was completely unimpressed with the national hot sauce brands. I just knew that hot sauce could be complex and flavorful and interesting. I knew that it could be a quality product that brought joy to mealtime!
This is Murphy - the inspiration behind the company name.
A few things you should know:
- He was born in Nebraska.
- He has a younger brother named Fergus.
- His legs are seven inches.
- His ears are nine.
- He is a basset hound.
- He is 10.5 years old and his birthday is January 3.
He stole our hearts back in 2014 and is always there to keep us smiling!
