How do you see Spiceology & Crowd Cow’s values align?
We’re both invested heavily in the quality of our products, devoted fully to understanding every step of the production process for an insane end result.
Why did you start Spiceology?
Over the years I watched as products like potato chips, salsa, jelly and more expanded to include tons of new flavors, while seasonings always stayed the same. I thought, if there can be biscuits-and-gravy flavored potato chips, spices must be able to go beyond lemon pepper and Old Bay. Flavor innovation was in high demand, and no one was capitalizing on these funky new flavors — so I decided to be the one to do it.
What’s the best part about what you do?
The most fun part about what I do is building my team. Watching the company grow and trying to keep up with it is exciting, but that’s also the hardest part — bringing on someone at a junior level, growing them and getting them to a point where they can run a whole division.
Who taught you how to cook?
My grandmother was the one who inspired me to get into culinary. She would make gravy from scratch and teach me the fundamentals like how to create a roux. No cans were ever used in her kitchen. New England classics were her specialties ― corn chowder, lobster rolls and more comfort food. Later, I went to culinary school and worked my way up in restaurants.
What’s your favorite Spiceology blend?
Our Black and Bleu Cajun BBQ Rub is great on everything ― chicken, eggs, potatoes.
