NEW MILFORD, CT--(Marketwire - June 23, 2008) - Q Products, Inc. today announces their national expansion has reached the final stages of implementation. Their flagship "Jonathan's Q BBQ" brand is currently sold in more than 5,000 supermarket locations nationwide.

"I joke with him that his middle name is Hustle," said Stew Leonard Jr. CEO of the Norwalk-based Stew Leonard's four-store chain. "We get thousands of requests a year from people who ask to bring products to the store. Some people knock once and you never see them again. Jonathan camps outside your door."

Q Products, Inc has taken the country by storm and is gearing up for a saucy summer grilling season. Jonathan Soares, the 23 year-old entrepreneur and CEO of Q Products, Inc. has overcome every imaginable obstacle in launching his brand nationally. Jonathan single handily pioneered his brand in three years of operations, secured distribution through every major specialty distributor and developed a national network of specialty food brokers. This tenacious entrepreneur has managed a fully operational outsourced business model and taken the term "bootstrapping" to a new level.

"Many told me I was crazy for marketing a BBQ Sauce and when I expressed my vision of national expansion I was laughed at. But I knew by trusting in God along with the support of my family, friends, colleagues and a tremendous amount of persistence I could accomplish anything. I'm looking forward to an exciting yet busy summer and gearing up for continued expansion." Soares laughs, "I've worn so many hats I'm surprised I still have hair on my head, I think its time to start hiring!"

Jonathan's Q BBQ is great for marinating, baking, dipping or broiling and comes in three mouth watering flavors. Original Honey BBQ which is sweet and smooth, Hickory Teriyaki which is sweet and smoky with an Asian zing and Spicy Cajun which is sweet and spicy. The three flavor profiles are unlike any other BBQ sauce on the market and consumers are having a blast transforming their meals into culinary experiences.
