Belizeans can now find the famous sauce of Fibbers Fast Foods in retailers throughout Belize City.
Both Brodies locations, all thee Publics Supermarkets, and Caribbean Chicken now carry the Original Honey Glaze and Spicy Honey Glaze sauces of Fibbers Foods, the company formed from the success of the Belizean fast food staple.
Owners of both the fast food outlet and the company that sells the sauce, Eloim Ellis and Hortence Young, told The Reporter this week that Fibbers Foods took off in March this year, after increasing requests by customers to have the sauce sold retail.
Ellis explained that while preparing sauce for export is an eventual aspiration for the company, its main focus is to serve the Belizean market, which has given Fibbers its success.
“The main idea is to ensure that this sauce can be found in stores throughout the country,” Ellis said, “We wanna make sure that if you’re in Corozal, in Toledo or in San Pedro and you want Fibbers sauce, you can get it at your convenience.”
The sauce, Young explained, is a recipe which she developed and perfected in the last 12 years, two years before the the fast food shop was opened in the Fort Street Tourism Village.
“One Saturday we ran out of sauce, and about 85 percent of the customers didn’t want to buy chicken without it,” Young recalled.
Both added that more flavors and sizes above the 12 ounce bottle, ranging up to one gallon, will be made available in the upcoming months.
Retailers who wish to carry the sauce can call Fibbers Foods at 604-7750 to place orders.
