In West Philadelphia, there are two sisters making sauces and marinades that they are ready to introduce to the world.

Now, they're bringing their homemade, homegrown flavors to the investors at ABC's "Shark Tank" and hoping they take a bite.

For the Beard sisters, Kelly and Jorrae, every single jar of their Joyce's Lulu Bang sauce is a family affair.

Joyce is their late mother and the sisters say everyone in West Philly knew her food.

"She was famous for cooking she would feed the entire neighborhood," said Kelly.

Lulu Bang is an ode to their brother Michael who also passed away

"His nickname was Lulu Bang as a kid," said Kelly.

And the sisters say their sauce does have a bang - a little kick.

"And our slogan is: 'We bang everythang!' We laugh because you can use it on anything," said the sisters.

Their Lulu Bang line has 4 sauces, from the original BBQ fusion to the Bourbon marinade.

"(The BBQ infusion) is infused with a lot of herbs and spices and with our sauces we do not use fillers, it's all sauce," said Jorrae. "And we want warn you - (the Bourbon marinade) has real bourbon in it."

All of the recipes are Jorrae originals.

"Kelly tasted it and said this is going to make me a million dollars someday," said Jorrae.

Right now, they sell them at 200 Walmart stores across the country, some local Shoprite stores, and online.

Every jar is handmade - from the sauce to the labels - in West Philadelphia.

The Beard sisters are asking the Sharks for $150 thousand dollars and a 10 percent share of their company to help market their sauce and expand their reach.

You can watch their episode of "Shark Tank" Friday at at 9 p.m. on 6abc.
