We just got back from Albuquerque and the 24th Annual Fiery Foods and BBQ Show. This event was a huge success for us! We love doing this show, seeing our friends & returning customers and meeting new friends & customers. This year there were over 17,000 people at the show.
Each morning we started our day at the official All Spice Cafe coffee shop in Albuquerque, Satellite Coffee. Then off to the show, where other chileheads/vendors like Joe of Flaming Joe’s and Sam of Zane & Zach’s had their flaming hair on.
Our products were also featured in the Disc-It booth and on Sunday JD was part of a cooking demo with Disc-It’s Nevin Montano – we can’t wait to see the video from that demo. Another cooking demo, with Chef Vicki used several of our products, but we didn’t get the chance to video or photo, but we’re working on getting some of her recipes for our site.
By midday Saturday we SOLD OUT of our most popular sauce Chipotle Garlic. We even brought more inventory than we did last year. As the day progressed on Sunday, we slowly SOLD OUT of our other sauces and popcorns. By the end of the show, we pretty much SOLD OUT of everything we had. We felt really bad, because some of our regular customers came looking specifically for our products and they were disappointed that they couldn’t get their favorite sauces. We ended up giving out discount codes for our online store to make-up for it.
We can’t wait for next year!
