To make the best tasting and unique spicy products using the best ingredients, to help preserve and improve the lives of our oceans' sharks, and to have a lot of fun along the way.
After growing up working in the restaurant business, and then 17 years in the beer industry, Founder Shark Gabe was ready for a change. He figured if he could take his two biggest passions, spicy food and sharks, and turn that into a career, it would be a pretty fun life. With some family recipes, and help from his family and friends, he took the summer of 2018 to put together the blueprints for The Spicy Shark. The feeding frenzy began February of 2019!
