Our Story

Thanks to a bumper harvest of habaneros, Eric "Sembo" Semborski combined his love of gardening and cooking into a new hobby - hot sauce making! This combination of his passions turned into Sembo's Sauce, a venture that continues to grow.

In 2023, Sembo's Sauce became officially licensed as a Minnesota Cottage Food Producer! This doesn't change our sauces or production, but does allow us to sell at farmers markets and events locally. Check out the Events page to see where you can find us next.

Sembo is based in Southwest Minneapolis with his wife Sara, daughter Sadie, and two cats Pancake and Hazelnut.
