Victor began his culinary journey working in Darden Restaurants, gaining experience and expertise. As a sophomore at Kent State University, he took a leap of faith and branched off in establishing his own transient vending company, “Appling Food Products LLC.” His Signature Sauces gathered thousands at a time in local and regional festivals, carnivals, and fairs. Victor was able to translate direct feedback from patrons to perfect a Signature Line of Seasoning Sauces that are paired on just about everything from chicken, beef, pork, seafood, and vegetables. The Signature Sauces are a unique blend of fruits & vegetables fused with a subtle undertone of spices.

Completing Kent State University, Victor began his journey to incorporate his business by obtaining distribution internationally. Local placements with numerous businesses, restaurants, and vendors intrigued Victor to bring his culinary dream of developing a restaurant in his hometown Cleveland to reality. Victor’s D’E’TE’ Signature Seasoning Sauce is his primary product. The Cleveland Hot Chicken is the main attraction every Clevelander must experience.

Victor’s mission is to “Sauce The City of Cleveland” by providing cutting-edge culinary recipes. Victor is key to supporting local vendors and businesses to improve the local economy. Sauce The City is a venture of multiple culinary experts combining taste experiences from all around the nation. The concept is premised from modern food technology to accompany a combination of Signature Seasoning Sauces. Sauce the City is a culture of taste experiences shared through unique menu items to provide the perfect blend of flavors to produce optimal taste experiences.
