Phone: (559) 816-7424

"Since participating in the Fresno Food Expo, PaPaw’s Killer BBQ Sauce has increased sales by 5 percent.

Furthermore, the sauce can now be found in more than two dozen retail locations throughout the San Joaquin Valley – even reaching as far south as San Luis Obispo. Buyer contacts made at the 2012 Fresno Food Expo led to PaPaw’s Killer BBQ Sauce being picked up in three new retail locations: Chase's Chop Shop, Simonian Farms and Creek General Store in Big Creek. Additionally, contact was made with a Costco buyer and the company is now exploring the opportunity to bring its barbecue sauce to the wholesale giant in 2013. Key connections at the Fresno Food Expo have let to these retail connections, as well as increased recognition among the public – many of whom first tasted PaPaw’s Killer BBQ Sauce at the regional food show and have been customers ever since."
