Red’z celebrates one year

Accelerate UP, the Michigan Small Business Development Center and the Lake Superior Community Partnership recently teamed-up to hold a public one-year celebration for Red’z Bulgogi BBQ-Marinade, a local sauce company based in the Marquette. At the celebration, guests were able to try sandwiches made with Red’z signature sauces and discover why the company’s popularity is growing beyond Marquette County. After 15 years of perfecting her recipe, Teresa Mauldin is excited to share her “Korean-inspired sauce with a Yooper wave of flavor” with the public. After only one year of being sold commercially, Red’z Bulgogi BBQ-Marinade is already being carried by 127 stores throughout the Midwest. Contact Teresa Mauldin at 906-251-8741 for more information.
