American Specialty Manufacturing Company Inc. was formed 1983, in Rochester, New York. We are a privately held company that exclusively manufactures “Boss Sauce®.” The company opened its first location on Canal Street. Once more people tasted that one-of -a-kind savory after sauce, the popularity of Boss Sauce grew. After several years of tremendous growth, we moved to a larger facility at 272 Hudson Avenue, Rochester, New York, 14605. We are currently at this location today and celebrating nearly 40 years of business, health and growth.
At American Specialty Manufacturing Company Inc., it is our goal to help the surrounding community that supports us. Therefore, we apply a minimum of 25% of our labor force to federally and state funded programs. These programs include: the Job Training Partnership Alt., The Work Opportunity Tax Credit Program and the Welfare to Work Program.
For years – my mother prepared lunch, dinner and a variety of snack plates…topping cooked meats, fish, poultry and tossed salads with a secret family recipe. A recipe that has been handed down for several generations. For several years, I worked as a Chef and Manager for a famous Restaurateur. However, in 1981, I decided to open my own restaurant in Rochester, New York. It was called Eddie’s Chicken Coop.
While trying to create a unique sauce for my own restaurant, my mother in her loving manner, suggested that I try the secret family recipe. After that, I began to use the secret sauce in my restaurant, just as we had at home. It was an instant success! We all agreed that this sauce was the Boss of all Sauces! From that beginning, Boss Sauce® was born! Now we challenge you to take the ultimate test by preparing your taste buds for a tantalizing, sweet, spicy, hot or mild Gourmet After-Sauce that surpasses all others.
