In the mid-to-late 70’s, Colleen Clancy found herself in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a place where the culture of natural foods, independent stores and gourmet food passion came together beautifully. Clancy’s Fancy was first introduced at a vegetarian potluck. Colleen was trying to create real-tasting tofu pepperoni sauce. It was an immediate hit! First, friends started asking for “that fancy sauce that Clancy makes.” Then, local store owners and restaurants wanted it. Eventually, it grew into a high-demand business, and the sauce was still made the way it always had been – by hand with quality ingredients.
