GOURMET NEWS www.gourmetnews.com n JUNE 2016 n GOURMET NEWS 1 1 4 DennyMike's Sauces and Seasoning Blends: 'One Taste is All it Takes' DennyMike's is a line of super-premium, all- natural and gluten-free sauces and seasoning blends. Food enthusiasts from home cooks to professional chefs now count on Den- nyMike's to enhance a broad range of meats, seafood, poultry, game, soups, sides and more. Since its successful launch in 2006, the line of five seasonings and three sauces has won more than 60 awards at juried competi- tions around the country from well respected organizations such as National BBQ Associ- ation, The Fiery Foods Challenge and the Best in Barbecue. The top-selling seasonings are Pixie Dust and Chick Magnet, and the best-selling sauces are Sweet 'N Spicy and Mesquite Madness, although the entire line enjoys a legion of fans from coast to coast. DennyMike's recently underwent a com- plete branding overhaul. The new look is modern and eye-catching, giving Den- nyMike's impressive shelf appeal and instant brand recognition. Perhaps most important, the new sauce containers offer more volume at a significantly lower price point, and the seasonings now come in a more convenient and easier-to-use shaker top tin. DennyMike's is presently sold in four re- gions of Whole Foods from Maine to Mis- sissippi and Hannaford Brothers, a division of Delhaize with 180 stores in the Northeast. It is distributed by Seacrest Foods in Lynn, Massachusetts, Metropol- itan Meat and Poultry in Landover, Maryland, and UNFI as well as by special order from Hallsmith/Sysco. The History of DennyMike's Dennis Michael Sherman discovered authentic barbecue while travel- ing to Texas and Mexico as a college student. In the 30-plus years since that introduction, DennyMike's has nurtured his passion, and in 2002, he opened DennyMike's Smoke- house BBQ and Deli in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. He was unhappy with the rubs and sauces available commercially...everything had either too much salt or unnatural sweet- eners like high fructose corn syrup. So, in 2006, after years of research and recipe de- velopment, he launched his own line of sauces and season- ings. His focus from day one was to create a line that was all-natural and gluten-free, using only the finest ingredi- ents available – no high fructose corn syrup and far less salt than most. He meticulously crafts the line of pre- mium sauces and seasonings as versatile en- hancers, ideal for both indoor and outdoor cooking. Whether customers prefer season- ings or sauces, the company motto holds true: "One taste is all it takes..." and they are quickly committed DennyMike's fans.
