A NC home-style family sauce with
Jim's Own sauce is an award winning range of Home-style North Carolina BBQ Sauces, Rubs and more that started out of Jim Arnold's house in Durham during the mid-1990's. Jim a Canadian born teacher used his moms old sauce recipe and became so successful that he went into the sauce business full time in 1997. When Jim's wife Amy fell ill around 2009 Jim realized that he needed more free time to support Amy with her recovery. In 2010 he sold the brand to Gentlewoods Food Co. owned and operated by Willem van Schalkwyk, who had just opened an office for his South African business in North Carolina.
