Fly By Jing—Chinese Chili Sauce Brand Knocks Open Marine Expeditions for Heat

A Chinese chili sauce brand that was founded in 2018 by a girl from Chengdu took the U.S. market like a whirlwind. This is Fly By Jing. Fly comes from "fly restaurants" or hole-in-the-wall restaurants in Chengdu, and Jing is the given name of the founder Jing Gao.

Sold at USD 17 per jar, Fly By Jing quickly takes off in the mainstream U.S. market under selling points like "100% natural & additive free" and "chili for royal families in the old times". Contextual digital marketing, DTC website, and physical retail through Whole Foods, Target, and Sprouts have pushed the sales of FBJ to USD 10-million scale, covering over 4,000 physical stores and bagging USD 12 million Series B funding this year.
