Virginia Beach Gets Spicy!

It’s Review Preview Time!
At Rogers Advertising, we set up review previews with our clients to review the results, trials, and tribulations they’ve experienced recently and to preview what they are hoping to see in future months. So we asked Jimmy for a review and preview of his business.
What have been your proudest moments?
“Making the transition from wholesaler to co-packer and retailer as well.” The store in general has been a big accomplishment in Jimmy’s life. His sauce shop carries a variety of hot sauces, dry rubs, bloody mary mixes, and much more!
In the past few years, what has been your biggest obstacle?
As with many local business owners, time and money are Jimmy’s biggest obstacles. “Sacrifices have to be made to do your own thing and grow.”
What are your future plans?
“The goals are always the same in business and life. Make the money that allows you the freedom to live the way you want. Go your own way.”
Advice For Other Local Business Owners
Make and produce a product or service that speaks for itself. Do what you desire for the creative side. Don’t expect anyone to do it for you. Nothing is free. There will be plenty of decisions that will be made based on money, but if you are creating, those choices are not as hard. Live the dream; if you aren’t then don’t be afraid to move on. Keep going forward even if it is away.
If you’re ready to spice up your next meal, you can buy Jimmy’s hot sauces on his website or swing on by Speedy’s Sauce Shop in Virginia Beach. You can also find Speedy’s Hot Sauces in a variety of restaurants across the Southside.
