About Us

Up the Creek was founded in 1996 in Montgomery, West Virginia. Fred Lockard had a recipe for specialty mustards and sauces that needed to be shared with everyone! Thus Up the Creek was born. For 23 years Fred, produced, sold, and distributed Up the Creek products all across West Virginia and the rest of the United States.
May 15, 2019 Fred sold Up the Creek to Trey Yates. Now headquartered in Rainelle, West Virginia, Up the Creek has now increased distribution and continues to grow daily. Keeping tradition with the recipes Fred had and great customer service. Here’s to the future!
