Chugwater Chili was started as an opportunity to provide jobs in the Chugwater community. Over the years many of the local residents have had the chance to work for Chugwater Chili in either full-time or part-time positions.
About Our Staff:
If you stop in Chugwater, you will run into local owners Justin Gentle or Karen Guidice, or meet our office and marketing manager, Katie Kernan. Katie provides customer service along with managing our social media pages and our website food blog. Vicki is our production manager who oversees the packaging of our products. There are a few Chugwater Residents that work in packaging alongside Vicki throughout the year.
All of our products are packaged and distributed from our FDA inspected facility in Chugwater. Our Red Pepper Jelly is made in house by our part-time jelly maker. Many of Chugwater's residents have dedicated numerous hours over the years to filling and labeling jars of chili, dip, crackers, jelly, and more.
When you see us on the road, you will have the chance to meet Kim, Terri or one of our many other locals who love to travel and let the world know all about the "Gourmet Spice of Western Life". We love working as a team to improve how our business operates and to keep expanding our reach.
