About Us

Kirk's Hot Sauce is an all-American hot sauce brand inspired by Iowa football legend Carroll "Chick" Kirk, and brought to life by his grandson Charlie Kirk.

We built Kirk's Hot Sauce on the same foundation of American excellence the Kirk family is known for: always striving to be better than yesterday's best, and being the first to get in the game while others stay on the sidelines.

Our sauce is crafted with those high standards in mind. An American-made hot sauce that's Good On Everything - and good enough to share with friends - Kirk's Hot Sauce is committed to excellence in every bottle and every interaction.

We hope you love Kirk's Hot Sauce as much as we do, and that you'll share it with your own friends and family.

Carroll "Chick" Kirk

Carroll “Chick” Kirk was an all-American football player at the University of Iowa & is considered their first triple-threat player.

In 1907, Kirk was captain of the team and is credited with throwing the first pass at Iowa, as well as perfecting the football drop kick.

Chick Kirk went on to coach collegiate football and basketball at Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa.

Charlie Kirk

Charlie Kirk is President of Kirk's Hot Sauce, as well as Founder and President of Turning Point USA - the largest conservative youth organization in the country.

Charlie reaches hundreds of millions each month through his daily podcast & radio show The Charlie Kirk Show, multiple bestselling books, social media accounts, and media appearances.

A Chicago native and a life-long sports fan, Charlie loves a good hot sauce. After perfecting his family's hot sauce recipe it quickly became a favorite among his friends, family, colleagues - pretty much everyone who tried it - and Kirk's Hot Sauce was born.
