Talents of Pivotal Payments: Spiceoholic Signature Hot Sauces

Louis Thibeault is a Relationship Manager at Pivotal Payments. He’s also the man behind Spiceoholic signature hot sauces.

When Louis was 7 years old, his mother’s Italian cousin brought back a bunch of dry hot peppers from Italy. Every Friday, his family would get together to play cards and snack on Tostitos with salsa. However, the salsa was never spicy enough! To add a little kick to it, Louis started using the dried Italian peppers to make it hotter. That was the beginning of his love affair with spicy food!

Louis went to culinary school in Montreal. He has always liked the creative aspect of cooking and has been experimenting with sauces for his annual BBQ event for some time now, before making his first large batch.

It wasn’t until 2014, however, that Louis got the idea of bottling his very own hot sauce. It all began when a friend asked him to make 200 bottles of his signature Orange Opus hot sauce, as party favours for a wedding. The guests loved the product and started asking where they could get it. That same year, Louis had his first sidewalk sale and that, too, was a huge success!

As demand for his hot sauces increased, Louis decided to partner up with a graphic designer to bring his brand to life. Lucky for him, his designer was also a friend, and together they created the “Spiceoholic” brand!

Today, you can find Spiceoholic products online at www.spiceoholic.com , in these local stores and also at the farmer’s markets.

All the peppers used in the sauces are grown locally. The ones for the signature line are grown by local farmers and the ones for the limited edition line, come from Louis’s backyard.

Louis has put together a very handy  guide to choosing your spiceoholic sauce, which helps you identify which of the sauces pairs well with your favorite meals. Try it but be warned; once you try a spiceoholic sauce, you’ll definitely be back for more!
