i finished my university studies in early 2014 and was looking to start a small business in the Brighton area when i came across Chilli Pepper Pete’s chilli shop. i saw an advert about the business being up for sale, contacted the owner and agreed to go visit the shop one day. i had never noticed the shop before even though i had walked past it numerous times.
To be honest, i never thought i would involve myself with the shop. Firstly, i didn’t think many people in the UK liked chilli products and secondly, i didn’t want to work with products that associate themselves with” the dark side”. But the more i went back, the more pleasantly surprised i became by the mood and attitude of the customers. They were kind, funny and passionate about chillies. i wanted these customers to still be able to go to the shop and buy their favourite products. This was the prime motivation for deciding to take over the shop. i am now learning more and more about chillies every day and hope to become a proper expert in the not too distant future.
Another reason why i decided to buy the shop was because i want to help the UK chilli industry develop. i will try to stock the best of British producers as this leads to a sustainable way of living. i will also try to bring in products that are ethical, organic and good for people. It is my belief that working and serving shouldn’t be just about making a living any more. i think we are past that point now and we should start looking after one another and the Earth a bit better.
i invite existing customers to keep supporting me as i try to get to grips with this new challenge and invite people who haven’t tried chillies before to add a little heavenly heat to their lives.
Why Visit Brighton Chillli Shop?
Visiting Brighton Chilli Shop is not just a shopping experience but an education in the wonderful world of chillies, if you want it to be. We are so enthusiastic about the flavoursome little fireballs that we will share everything we know in answer to any burning questions you may have. Maybe questions like these:
Are chillies good for you?
Chillies are extremely beneficial to your health, containing more vitamin c than an orange and more potassium than a banana. Not only that but they taste great and they can help you lose weight. So what’s not to love about chillies? Whether you opt for a hint of heat or take a blow-your-head-off walk on the wild side, Brighton Chilli Shop has it covered. Mild to wild, the choice is yours and we’re here to help you make it.
Recent research suggests that people who eat chillies live longer. Could it be that their love of chillies reflects their more passionate love of life? Or maybe the thrill of eating chillies invokes their passion. After all, some chillies are known for their aphrodisiac qualities. So in the words of the song, spice up your life! Even if you don’t live longer at least your life will be more zesty and exciting.
Can I try the products before buying?
The world of chillies can be a bewildering place it you’re not used to it. Even seasoned veterans can add to their repertoire as new chillies are being cultivated all the time. Every weekend we provide a range of tasters so you can experiment with different delicious sauces to find the heat level that is right for your palate. We always have something for you to try that will not break the bank, too. Right now we are letting customers buy the world’s hottest chilli, the Carolina Reaper for only £1.
Why this shop?
The Brighton Chilli Shop is unique in its focus on chilli products only. We offer chillies and chilli sauces and products from the four corners of the globe, but only the highest quality. Here you will find award-winning Brighton-made sauces alongside award-winners from Belize and Australia. Our customers are very warmly welcomed and encouraged to ask questions about all of our products. Want to know how to look after the plant you’re thinking of buying? Just ask. Want to grow your own plants and need advice on which seeds to choose from the 120 that we stock? Just ask. Want to know which chillies are the right ones for the dish you want to cook? Just ask. We are delighted to help you in any way we can. We scour the world for products that are ethically produced, choosing organic wherever possible.
We are into community building. Not only do we advise and serve you but sometimes our customers have chilli information to share with us, so it’s a win-win situation. That’s what we like, listening to our customers and creating community, both national and international. For example our Mexican customers told us what brands they love from back home and so we listened and stocked up on La Costena products. Through this mutual sharing many of our customers are more like friends -friends who are happy to support their local store. We would love to welcome you as one of them.
So, kick out the bland and add some heavenly heat to your life – you may even live longer – by visiting us very soon.
