For people who enjoy eating hot peppers, the Habanero Shaker is a wonderful item that can be used with lots of different foods. The brainchild of a serial entrepreneur named Joel Friant, the Habanero Shaker is a plastic shaker filled with 100 percent habanero flakes.
In a recent Idea Mensch interview, Joel Friant explains some of his business strategies, and how the Original Habanero Shaker became a useful product that is very popular with consumers.
Prior to introducing the Habanero Shaker, Joel Friant briefly worked in home remodeling and real estate sales. In 1995, Mr. Friant became known as “The Thai Guy,” due to his creation of America’s first Thai fast food restaurant concept.
1995 was also the year that the Habanero Shaker was first introduced. Ever since he first tasted a habanero pepper while he was a high school student, Mr. Friant has been a big fan of the hot vegetable. After visiting Jamaica and trying the Scotch Bonnet variety of habanero pepper, he realized that he had to find a way to get the wonderful pepper introduced to more people.
The Habanero Shaker was originally created for use by Joel Friant’s family and friends, and sales of the product were proven in Washington State grocery stores. Realizing the possibilities in online sales, Mr. Friant began selling the Habanero Shaker on Amazon and EBay, where the product has been successfully received.
Although the habanero pepper is indeed a hot pepper, it is not quite as hot when it is presented as dried flakes. People who like heat in their food will appreciate the fact that the pepper flakes in the Original Habanero Shaker are approximately 30 times hotter than jalapeno peppers, producing an average 200,000 Scoville heat units.
As someone who sees the value in subconscious success training, Joel Friant believes that putting out a positive vibe can create good changes. Habanero pepper-lovers everywhere will certainly attest that they love the positive vibe they receive from the Original Habanero Shaker.
