All-Natural, Tabañero Hot Sauce Comes To A Retailer Near You (MARCH 2015) Boca Raton, FL
– Tabañero Hot Sauce, a 100% all-natural gourmet hot sauce is now being carried in over 30 Pepper Palace locations across the U.S. and Canada. The expanding retailer who specializes as a “one-stop-shop for everything spicy” has recently inked a deal to carry Tabañero Hot Sauce alongside its collection of spicy goods from pickled items to butters, jellies, drinks, hot sauces, BBQ and seasonings. Considered “Good enough to drink by the bottle” by John Kelly of the Houston Press, Tabañero Hot Sauce got its start in the fertile fields of Mexico’s Tabasco region. The gourmet hot sauce is free of vinegar taste and features a unique blend of wholesome ingredients including red habanero peppers, carrots and key lime juice paired with a “secret” ingredient, agave nectar, which balances the heat of the habaneros and adds a hint of sweetness. “This is an exciting opportunity for Tabañero Hot Sauce to get in front of hotheads across the South, Midwest and Canada,” said Tabañero’s Danny Vitelli. “Pepper Palace is a fun experience for people who love all things spicy and now, customers have another all-natural option to add to their shopping carts.” Pepper Palace was founded to be different, to prove that a successful business could and should be fun with locations from the Southeast to the Midwest and up to Canada. “We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality, unique products and exemplary customer service. The Tabanero series of products fit the bill perfectly. The products are all natural and full of flavor: exactly what our customers have come to expect from us." said Pepper Palace founder Craig Migawa. About Tabañero Hot Sauce:
Released to the market in early 2011 and described as a passion project by co-founder Kevin Peake, who explains how he and his team sold Tabañero out of the back of their cars for the first year. Tabañero Hot Sauce is firmly rooted in its humble beginnings and is committed to giving back a portion of its proceeds to the Tabasco region of Mexico where their journey began. Tabañero is a very unique hot sauce made from all-natural ingredients from Tabasco, Mexico, situated on the exotic Yucatán Peninsula. Taking a clue from the Mayans (who occupied the Yucatán Peninsula thousands of years ago and were one of the first civilizations to use peppers to flavor their native cuisine) the Tabañero Hot Sauce team, in 2007, began to utilize the fertile crops of the area to design the first recipe of the future award-winning hot sauce. Today Tabañero Hot Sauce is available online and is distributed in six states by both Sysco and US FOODS and can be found in restaurants, specialty stores and now H-E-B Grocery stores across Texas. Products include: Tabañero Hot Sauce in 5oz, 8oz and one gallon sizes. Tabañero has also expanded its product line to include a unique and natural (gluten free) Tabañero Bloody Mary Mix sold in a 32oz bottle. More products are expected to debut in 2015.

Pepper Palace was founded by Craig and Tanya Migawa in 1989 as a kiosk in a Central Wisconsin Mall. Eight years later, a family trip inspired a move south to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Pepper Palace opened their first Gatlinburg location in 1997 in a small storefront on the outskirts of town. Several moves were made to better, larger locations until finally reaching its current location in 1999, a 3000 square foot spot in a prominent Gatlinburg Mall. This was, and continues to be, the largest spicy themed specialty retail location in the world. Pepper Palace entered the online arena in that same year by launching pepperpalace.com
. Pepper Palace began expansion efforts by introducing an innovative private label program in 2006 and by opening a distribution center and corporate office in 2007. In addition, Pepper Palace now operates over 30 retail locations in the US and Canada with plans to expand into the West, Northeast and Midwestern US and Central Canada. International expansion is on the horizon as well. Pepper Palace is a privately held corporation that has won hundreds of National Awards for product, marketing and flavor. In the midst of this expansion, Pepper Palace branched out by opening King of Fire Sauce Distributors in 2010 to meet the wholesale needs of other specialty retailers. King of Fire has continued to supply accounts both large and small and is today the fastest growing spicy themed wholesaler in the world. A commercial kitchen was opened that same year and has continued to produce products for both the retail locations and wholesale customer for the last five years. The kitchen has been continually expanded and automated to meet growth on both the retail and wholesale fronts.
