Capital City Co. Owners Win Big at Black Enterprise
“It feels kind of surreal. We never won an award recognizing how much work we’ve done,” says Arsha Jones, who co-owns and operates Capital City Co. along with husband Charles. “It feels really good to be recognized by your own.”
The partners in life and in business opened the doors to their company in 2011, directly from their home in Maryland.
Just two months after selling their condiment online, Arsha was contacted by The Washington Post, which featured the couple and the sauce they created in a front-page article for the Sunday paper. The story brought free, wide-scale advertising to their product, and, overnight, they received more than 1,400 orders. Their sales for 2017 currently stand at $1 million.
Arsha’s love affair with mambo sauce began in childhood. She stated,
“It’s sweet and savory with a tomato base. It really goes well with things that are salty and fried. We have an inherent knowledge of Mambo sauce in D.C. Ours is easy on the palate.”
