After winning the 2012 Scovie Award for its Aviators Sauces, the owner of Sauce Depot got inspired and created a new food truck and menu using his own products.
In late 2011 a panel of top culinary experts from the Scovie awards honored Sauce Depot and it’s locally produced Gourmet Aviator Products a first place in Product Label design for its Aviators Wing Sauce. Owner Alex Montanez decided to take his products to the next level by creating a food truck so people can actually try foods made with his award winning products. Alex, an aviator by trade, designed his products and truck as a tribute to the golden age of aviation, the design featuring the old vintage look and nose art that made US aviation so popular.
The food truck opened May 10 and is gaining popularity in the social media websites as well as the local crowds; the truck design is hard to miss. The truck will be operating on weekends in farmers markets, airshows and special events. The truck is also available for private events and catering.
Although Alex is a pilot and an aircraft mechanic, he is no stranger to the culinary world. In 2010 he won first place in the Scovie Awards with Stevens Cuisine Hot Sauce which he imports exclusively from Puerto Rico, as well as few local cooking competitions. He also been operating Sauce Depot now based in Jacksonville, Florida for five years.
