Dave’s Famous Chicken Wing Sauce compliments and can be used in many recipes. Dave’s Sauce can enhance your favourite chili, tacos and spaghetti sauce. A popular pizza in the Maritimes uses Dave’s Famous Chicken Wing Sauce as a base. Top your pizza with barbecue chicken and mozzarella cheese to create your own Buffalo Pizza!
Dave’s Sauce is also great as a marinade for steak, chicken, sausages or any protein of your choice. Delicious on egg dishes.
We are asked if we are “gluten free.” There is no gluten in our sauce, however, one of our ingredients is made in a factory that also makes gluten products. For this reason we cannot make the claim to be gluten free.
Dave’s Famous Maritime Style Sauce was first produced by Dave Keigan in the 1980’s. Dave was working as the General Manager for the Red Fox Tavern in Halifax and wanted to find a use for the very inexpensive chicken wings that were available.
Dave was an “original foodie” and played around with recipes until he came up with the sauce we know and love today. In 1985, Dave decided to open his own company, so with his wife Annette, he started D&A Foodservices and opened at 552 Windmill Road in Dartmouth. The name was changed to Dave’s Famous Chicken Wing Sauce.
This is when the grocery stores, restaurants and bars had their chance to get in on the Dave’s Wings craze. Sales took off and today you will find Dave’s in grocery stores across Atlantic Canada and in other parts of Canada. Our Foodservice Wholesalers continue to supply restaurants, bars, golf courses and our Canadian Military with Dave’s Famous Chicken Wing Sauce.
Dave passed away in 1993 and D&A Foodservice was taken over by his daughter and son in law. A family business to this day.
