After more than four decades in the business, not a single day has passed when somebody wouldn’t come in and ask us for our hot sauce recipe. Even when growing up, we always heard the same thing.
Penfield & Greece Hots in Rochester, NY is more than your typical burger place. Not only are we family-owned-and-operated , but our secret hot sauce recipe has been passed on in our family for more than 70 years.
Our hot sauce has become a staple at every family gathering we had. During Christmas feasts, people would argue over who would get the last scoop. Whenever family members would pick their special birthday dinner, they didn’t care what the special meal would be. All that mattered was grandma making the special hot sauce – a recipe she handed down to our father when she passed away.
After years of listening to people encouraging us to sell our hot sauce, we finally decided to give it a shot. We have enjoyed 20 successful years of running The Pizza Box, and closed the doors to make way for this new endeavor. We opened Penfield Hots in the summer of 2000, which was followed by Greece Hots in 2001.
Over the past decades since the Penfield & Greece Hots opened its doors to the public, we have created a name for ourselves that will be carried on for generations. We take a great deal of pride in providing our customers a clean and comfortable environment to dine in, and have given back to the community that has been so kind to us.
We have sponsored sports teams, donated to Boy Scout pancake breakfasts, and worked side-by-side with high schools to help cater to football and basketball games. We have also donated nearly all our profits to charity events and fundraisers without any hesitation.
We have also organized more catering parties than we can count, some including weddings (Who wouldn’t want a plate for their rehearsal dinner meal after all?). At the end of the day, we strive to make your dining experience as happy and comfortable as possible.
Family has always been an important part of our lives. After years of serving regular and new customers, we now consider you an extension of our own family. We wouldn’t be where we are today if not for your steadfast loyalty (and hearty appetite). For that, we say thank you very much.
