Having little money for presents during the holidays, Mr. Yoshida started cooking batches of his family’s 60 year-old secret recipe for a gourmet teriyaki-based sauce in the basement of the karate school. He and his family gave bottles of the sauce to his karate students as Christmas gifts, and to his surprise and delight, students began requesting refills.
As word-of-mouth spread and demand grew, the Yoshida's decided to market their unique product and sell it in local grocery stores. From this humble beginning, Mr. Yoshida’s Original Gourmet Sauce was conceived.
Today this line of delicious sauces sells in stores throughout the United States, offering unique Asian flavors, versatility, and fun for everyday meals.
