About Us

History

Conch Turbo Sauce was first developed by “Bimini Mike” in the 1980’s on Sugarloaf Key just north of Key West, Florida.  The home-brewed Caribbean-style red sauce was shared with friends who offered rave reviews and suggested it be bottled!  So, in 1986, Conch Turbo Sauce Corporation was born. 

After years of offering Conch Turbo Sauce as a solo product, in 2013, Bimini Mike met “Pirate Paul” who also has a knack for developing home-brewed sauces.  After several versions, the perfect blend of sweet and hot was achieved and in 2015, Conch Turbo Sauce Corporation released a second sauce, “Conch Turbo Gold.” 

Conch Turbo Sauce, located in Naples, FL develops high quality spicy, yet flavorful sauces made with all-natural ingredients.  Try it for grilling, marinades, a condiment, and to add a zesty zing to your favorite recipes. Once you try it, we’re sure you’ll agree that Conch Turbo sauces are the finest hot sauces you’ve ever tasted – maybe the finest in the universe!
