DCS IndieGoGo is live!

Hello DCS Family –

Want more grilled salsa? Read on – we need your help!

The DCS Indiegogo campaign is LIVE and runs through July 22nd. Our goal is to raise $50,000 … and keep your mouths happy with our special grilled taste! Hitting this gets us:

A custom made stainless steel grill … the DCS 5000, designed just for us.
First official release of Dom’s Chop Salsa – bam!
What we need to make it all work – from labels to advertising to getting Dom some voice lessons (he sings to the tomatoes) … we’re gonna do it right.

How we need you:

1. Share our campaign. If you’re reading this on Facebook, click that button and get the word out to your friends. Tweet, Instagram, email Gammy in Ohio – whatever you can do to help us spread the word!
2. Donate if you can. We’ve got some fun giveaways and are all about getting DCS in the hands of those who love it.

More details can be found on the IndieGoGo campaign page here.

The support we’ve had from family, friends & the community is what has taken DCS this far. Your belief in us and what we know is a truly different product is what pushes us to go even further.

DCS: In the trenches

DCS project update on where we are at! (Somewhat shortened version – I can be verbose.)

DCS 5000
– The grill will cost around 24k to fabricate. This is a bit over the original cost we estimated, but as the surrounding shell and the conveyor belt system needs to be manufacturing approved stainless steel all around, the cost of this is a bit higher.
– We are working with our builder to determine if there are areas to cut cost without sacrificing quality

IndieGoGo Crowd Fund me:
– Completed about 75% to include story, perks, and team involved.
– Reaching out to various DCS family members to provide feedback on perks before June 15th launch. If you are interested please contact me via email or PM on FB.

– June 14th – Finalize recipes and manufacturing process for DCS Hot/Medium/Mild
