Saugys have been a Rhode Island contained phenomenon since 1869. In the late 1800s Saugys was a staple of the old Canal Street provisions district located at 274 and 285 Canal Street. In 1914 at the age of 12 Leo McCaughey, grandfather of the current owner started working for the Saugy brothers driving a horse-drawn wagon along the cobblestone streets of Providence. Leo later became a salesman for the company, then President and CEO. Saugys are still made much the way they were in days gone by, with quality ingredient and the familiar snap. Saugys are enjoyed in backyard barbecues and tailgate parties throughout New England and now you can enjoy them too.
