A Family Affair: The Gooch Legacy
Absolutely World Class isn’t just a brand; it’s a quintessential family affair. Picture a bustling kitchen filled with laughter, the clinking of utensils, and the savory aroma of simmering sauces. Mr. Gooch, his wife, three daughters, and grandkids form the backbone of this culinary empire, living and breathing sauces for three generations.
The journey began in 1991 when Robert Gooch stumbled upon a world-class recipe in the heart of Abilene. It wasn’t just any recipe; it was a culinary gem crafted by a local woman known for her lunches and salads. Struck by the exceptional flavor, Mr. Gooch saw an opportunity to bring this hidden treasure to a broader audience.
From Local Gem to World-Class Brand
What started as a collaboration between Mr. Gooch and the local artisan blossomed into the birth of Absolutely World Class. The brand quickly gained local acclaim, with families across Texas savoring the distinct flavors that set their sauces apart.
