The idea for Gator Rons was started in 2006 by Ron Griffith, who created recipes for unique, delicious sauces and mixes that were beloved by family and friends. Ron began to investigate marketing his secret recipes after repeated requests for his sauces, but his desire to bring his dream to fruition was halted when he was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. During his illness, Ron taught his wife Connie to make the sauces as perfectly as he did to ensure the taste, texture and integrity of the sauce recipes remained exact. Ron passed away in Nov. 2011. In Jan. 2012 Connie established Gator Rons, LLC, dedicated to keeping Rons dream alive. The company manufactures Gator Rons Zesty Sauces & Mixes. In addition to sharing Rons unique, healthy sauces and recipes with food lovers everywhere, her ultimate goal is to help find a treatment for ALS, a percentage of proceeds from all sales of Gator Rons products will be donated to the Packard Center for ALS research at Johns Hopkins.
Products include two versions each of Heavenly Barbecue Sauce, Angel Wing Sauce and Divine Bloody Mary Mix. Each contains all natural ingredients, are free of gluten, low in fat and calories, and come with healthy, low fat recipes for preparation. The first manufactured bottles arrived in July 2012, and are already available in several markets in the DC metro area, as well as at local farmers markets, charity events, and via our online store at www.gatorrons.com. We hope to become the Paul Newmans for ALS.
