CaJohns Fiery Foods got its start in 1996. John Hard, a Fire Protection Engineer by trade, had a passion for hot & spicy food. Lit by many trips to the Gulf Coast and Southwest to work on various fire protection projects, he became enamored with the local cuisine. Sue, his wife, was raised on the Mississippi Coast, and frequent visits to her parents' led to many treks to New Orleans some 60 miles to the west. Here, John could load up on all the ingredients he needed to satisfy his hot & spicy tastes.The whole family is now involved in this specialty food business. All-natural and preservative-free, carefully prepared in small batches, and monitored to insure a high level of quality and a consistent taste. Only the finest of ingredients are used in these products. In fact, CaJohn processes fresh chiles every fall to use exclusively in his products. He refuses to use commercial pepper mash loaded with salt. This is only one of the reasons CaJohns products have fared very well in national competition, garnering over 200 international, national, and regional awards. CaJohn guarantees customer satisfaction with all of his products. Taste the CaJohns Difference!
