If you see people trying to hold a parking spot by standing in it, or know people that do this, you should punch them in the fucking mouth.

Famous Sriracha 'Rooster Sauce' finally makes the move to new Irwindale factory - The Daily Breeze

IRWINDALE - Huy Fong Foods founder David Tran designed the chili hopper at his new factory with a model constructed from pieces of a manila envelope.

The 69-year-old Chinese entrepreneur built his Sriracha spicy chili sauce empire from the ground up just a few months after immigrating from Vietnam as a refugee in 1979. Next month, he'll move his now flourishing business into a brand new 650,000 square-foot factory.

"Thirty-three years in business


Huy Fong Foods, Inc. holds a groundbreaking ceremony for the company's new facility on Azusa Canyon Road in Irwindale Oct. 6, 2010. (SGVN/Staff Photo by Sarah Reingewirtz)
and we still only have three products, it says a lot," said Executive Operations Officer Donna Lam, who is Tran's sister-in-law. "I think we are a little bit different."
Tran founded his business in 1980 in Los Angeles Chinatown and moved to a factory in Rosemead six years later. Since then, business has exploded; he now sells his famous sauce in every U.S. state and every continent across the globe, with the company's newest customers in Libya. To keep up with demand, the company had to build the new $40 million facility in Irwindale, which more than doubles the square footage of the Rosemead factory.

Tran works seven days a week in all aspects of the business, even down to installing the electrical wiring on the factory's new chili washers and mashers.

"When I'm not here, I'm always thinking about my business," Tran said.

The new building was erected in 2011, with the help of city of Irwindale redevelopment funds, but Tran's meticulous methods, custom designed and self-installed equipment have slowed down the move, said Director of Operations Adam Holliday, who is Tran's son-in-law.

"We are doing a lot of the installation ourselves, that's how (Tran)


has always done it," Holliday said. "I remember when I first started working here, he would hire a plumber, for example, and he would watch him and he would say, 'That's easy,' and then he would do it himself."
The big move into the new factory has also had to work around the strict production schedule for the three chili sauces Huy Fong produces. The company harvests all its chilies -- which last year was more than 50,000 tons -- from one farm, Underwood Family Farms in Ventura, once a year around the third week of August.

Last year Huy Fong produced its first batch of chili sauce in Irwindale, but had to truck the finished product back to Rosemead for bottling. Huy Fong makes all of its bottles and one-ton chili storage barrels in-house and packages them to be picked up by a distributor. Now, the bottling equipment is almost completely installed in Irwindale, and Holliday said the company hopes to be in full operation for the upcoming harvest season in August or the beginning of September.

Tran, who lives in Arcadia with his wife, said he decided to make his own version of the Thai-inspired Sriracha chili sauce because the options already in existence didn't satisfy his taste.

"The other sauces out there were not using fresh chilies," Tran said. "Hot sauce, you make it your way. You don't try to copy someone else. I wanted to make it as fresh as possible."

He first started producing the sauce while still in Vietnam, bottling it in baby food containers and selling it out of his home. When he started making it in the U.S. he assumed it would mainly serve the local Vietnamese community.

"I started my chili sauce business where I lived ... for our Vietnamese community. I never thought we could sell it to the mainstream," Tran said. "We started from very small."

Even as his product's reach has expanded, Tran has maintained a family-oriented business. Both of his children work for Huy Fong, as do their spouses. Holliday said the company only employs 50 people year round, adding about 100 temporary workers during the harvest season. Holliday says the company tries to "stay humble and make a product people like," and continue to offer the product at a low price.

"My sauce is the rich man's quality for the poor man's price," Tran said. "I need money but I don't need to be a billionaire. I need to keep the price low so that everyone can enjoy it."

And it appears Tran's goals have been achieved, as the chili sauce has made its mark throughout the San Gabriel Valley and way beyond. A local company even prints and sells T-shirts, pins and other merchandise with the "rooster sauce" logo.

The sauce has also made an appearance in a few videos from comedians David and Andrew Fung, who create music videos representing the Asian community in the San Gabriel Valley.

Andrew Fung said the sauce has become somewhat of a celebrity in its own right, especially in "the 626."

"The sauce is pretty much ubiquitous, in every pho restaurant, it's on every Vietnamese table and even American restaurants have it," Fung said. "I think it's pretty cool that a sauce that started here in Rosemead is worldwide now."

And Tran said the company will only keep growing -- at least as fast as the farm can grow more chilies. Even as the company prepares to complete the big move, he said he's already looking forward.

"Every year we increase business by 20 percent, so in 2017 we will have no more room" in this factory, he said.

Happened to me a few months ago but only just remembered it now.

Went to a sushi place and saw a couple come in, the girl was obviously preggo, like 7 months in maybe more.

I just casually watched them order, they spoke chinese and I did not understand but when the food came it was D:?!?!?

ALL SUSHI AND SASHIMI! Like what regular people eat n shit on a nice day out. This obviously was some sort of special occasion as they did order some pricy things. I was so close to getting up and telling them that she shouldnt be eating raw fish...

Am I too paranoid? Should I have gone up to her? What would you guys have done? I only didnt because it seemed like a special occasion and I dont know too much about preggo people, but I heard they shouldnt be eating raw meats/fish.

"They" say you shouldn't....but I don't think there would be anything wrong with eating it once or twice while pregnant.

I imagine there are millions of Japanese women who continue to eat sushi while pregnant. (this is just an assumption).

Not sure how I will give it up when the time comes to get knocked up

Yes. No. Nothing.

There's no conclusive evindence, linking the consumption of sushi to birth defects/pregnancy related issues. Having said that, I would still stay away from mollusks, bottom-feeders, mackerel and tuna.

more often than not, if you do, you'll just be told to gtfo and mind your own god damn business even when you mean good, and a possible punch to the face.

I just start pulling into the spot and wait. Eventually they get tired of standing and/or their friend gives up on trying to get past my partly-in car.

Why would you even think about interrupting people to tell them about something that you have absolutely no knowledge in?

Tips to avoid parking tickets in Van.

Top tricks and secrets to avoid getting a parking ticket

My favorite, buried about halfway...

"in the 2500-block of Pine than anywhere else. That’s because a resident calls parking enforcement about three times a day to complain about illegal parkers. "

You are now notorious enough that the press knows its one, singular person.
