After Nearly Three Decades, Family-Owned Heritage Fare Sauces Still Going Strong

Family-owned Heritage Fare’s authentic flavors of African-American soul food can be found nationwide.

Founded in the early 1990s, Heritage Fare has prided itself on staying true to the Southern-style tradition of cooking among Black Americans, and now four items from the brand’s line of seasonings and sauces are hitting shelves in more than 1,100 stores across the Midwest and Southeast, according to a press release.

Heritage Fare began distributing its collection of savory seasonings, spices and sauces across Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Whether it’s their tangy greens seasoning, or the spicy Buffalo wings sauce, Heritage Fare offers a blend of herbs, spices and other seasonings that are sure to cut down on cooking time without compromising flavor, the company proclaims.

The company’s garlic wings sauce and sweet potato pie seasoning are now sold in stores and online.

“We take you back home,” the company’s tagline brags.

After noticing the lack of quality foods offering good taste and ethnic appeal, brand founder Wendell E. Turner jumped at the opportunity to fill that gap. He then enlisted the help of his daughter and assembled a team of cooks, chefs and packers to create what would become a family-owned brand offering everything from wing sauces to fish fry coatings.

According to the company’s website, Heritage Fare has since expanded its distribution into Walmart in Ohio, Jewel-Ocso stores in the Chicago area, and Kroger stores in Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina.
