The Full Story

Johnny Hexburg 

Johnny Hexburg is a chilli sauce range with a story.
How did we get to call our sauces Johnny Hexburg
Since our son was 3 he was into fishing and the outdoors. Give him a stick, a brick, and a
piece of rope and he could play for hours. He was [and still is] a Bear Grylls fanatic. So,
whenever he was playing outside, pretending to be Bear Grylls or in the army, he always had
his counterpart Johnny Hexburg with him. His army man was named Johnny Hexburg. His rock
band was named Johnny Hexburg, everything was Johnny Hexburg.
When we asked him where he got the name from, he answered “I made it up”
This is how Johnny Hexburg became a household name to us and this was the inspiration for
the name.
As parents, we had a discussion with him and asked him for 'permission' to use his name for the
sauces. We are trying to teach him [13 years old now] how to be an entrepreneur. He is
actively involved at Farmer markets in selling sauces.
