Eagle Wingz Hot Sauce
Rick Ewing began his career in the construction industry, establishing R.L. Ewing Company several years after graduating from Woodbridge High School. One day in 1985, he “took a little of this and a little of that” and created the Eaglewingz Chesapeake Brand Hot Sauce that would become famous at family events. Rick began bottling his sauce in 1988. The Eaglewingz Brand Sauces Private Label Program is now used on tabletops and kitchens in 44 top restaurants in Delmarva, Baltimore, and Lancaster. Eaglewingz sauces have won many awards—including Best of Delaware in 2010, 3rd in the World for the World Hot Sauce Awards in Louisiana in 2014, and 1st place winner for “Pineapple Teriyaki” at the New York City Hot Sauce Expo in 2017. Rick married his wife, Kim, in 1978 and raised five children, Cory, Elizabeth, Taylor, Cassie, and Nick. Cassie, a Delaware Tech graduate and Wilmington University student, recently joined Dad at Delaware Sauce Company.
