Growing spice company moves to larger location

A local spice distributor is moving to its third location since its founding four years ago, following year after year growth.

Spiceologist, which was conceived during a local Startup Weekend by owners Heather Scholten and Pete Taylor and first funded through a Kickstarter campaign, sells rubs, spices and herbs nationwide, including through Williams-Sonoma.

The company just leased 18,416 square feet of space at 715 E. Sprague Ave., about 16,000 of which is warehouse space. It will move from its current location about a half-mile away at 125 S. Cowley St.

Jessica Schraner, executive administrator with the company, said the new warehouse is about triple the size of the current warehouse.

Schraner said the company, which is “chef-operated and chef-owned” has seen explosive growth in the past 18 months and employs about 30 people. It sells direct to restaurants and distributors, and its products are available at its warehouse location or online at Spiceologist.com.

Brokers were Jon Jeffreys and Darren Slackman, both of NAI Black.
