Congratulations
High Plains Spice Company
312 Main St. (866) 570-1425
The Logan County Chamber of Commerce recently honored the High Plains. Spice Company as the Business of the Week. On hand for the presentation were B.J. and Lacey New and their sons Emmett (age 4) and Drake (age 1).
High Plains Spice Company 312 Main St. opened in 2013 by B.J. and Lacey New.
B.J. and Lacey have always had a great passion for food, both for cooking and for eating, so the idea of something in the culinary realm just came naturally. Recognizing a trend in the food industry that included more spices and flavors in home cooking, and being adventurous eaters themselves, the couple decided to try their hand at creating seasoning blends.
After creating their first blends at their kitchen table and testing packaging and products on family and friends, B.J. and Lacey began attending craft fairs and offering products online. After a very positive reception, they concluded that a retail location would lend legitimacy and increased productivity to the business.
High Plains Spice Company (HPSC) opened on Oct. 25, 2013 at 312 Main St. in Downtown Sterling.
In the spring of 2014, HPSC was awarded a grant from the El Pomar Foundation after winning the top prize in Northeastern Junior College’s Business to College business plan competition. The grant allowed the company to expand current product lines and streamline many production processes.
In the following years, many more products, including olive oils and balsamic vinegars, BBQ and soy sauces, hot sauces, pickled olives, cocoa mixes, and many more spices and seasoning blends have been added to the shop’s core offerings of spices, blends, coffee and tea.
Additionally, HPSC partners with local producers to include products like pickles, Bloody Mary mix, and local honey, as well as handmade cutting boards, cheese slicers, spice racks, and custom kitchen utensils.
HPSC further increased their product offerings fall of 2015 by opening High Plains Winery (HPW) inside High Plains Spice Company. As a Limited Winery, HPW can make up to 100,000 gallons of wine, as well as carry wines produced in the state of Colorado. The business currently offer 19 different varieties of wine from five Colorado wineries/vineyards and are in the process of creating small batch wines that will be available as a limited release under the High Plains Winery label.
HPSC has seen great growth in online sales and is taking steps to continue to expand this area of the business. In addition, they continue to add new products and create new seasoning blends. They are currently working on a new product line they hope to have ready for the 2020 Holiday Season. (No spoilers but it’s going to be delicious!)
HPSC creates and packages a large number of food products as well as unique kitchen utensils.
To support local 4-H and FFA members, they are offering 15% off any gift box purchased as a buyer’s
gift, now through Sept. 15.
