The story behind 600 Degrees: “I honestly can’t pinpoint where my love for hot sauce started, but I know it’s been since I was a kid. I’ve always had a thing for spicy foods and by the time I was able to see over the stove, I was figuring out how to make meals that paired with my favorite hot sauces. Between cooking my own things for my siblings, and saving up my money to go to the local hot wing spot in Atlanta, I built up a tolerance & love for all things “Hot” and it’s safe to say that will never fade. 600 degrees is my thank you to the city I grew up in. It is my added bit of comfort and flavor that I can bring with me wherever I am and share with whomever I care about. 600 degrees…it’s just fye.”
