The Habanero shaker
One of Joel Friant’s greatest invention was the Original Habanero Shaker. It was brought on by the experience he gathered working in the food industry and wanted to create a spice worth remembering. The Habanero Shaker is a tasty, buttery and spicy pepper. Joel Friant had a taste of his first Habanero pepper in high school from a friend and was blown away by its wild taste.
When he got a deeper understanding of the food industry, he noticed that there was no Original Habanero spice. Most spices were mixed with salt or other cheaply acquired spices.
Joel Friant took advantage of this market gap and introduced a Habanero spicy condiment that could be used for cooking and seasoning. The Habanero Shaker was launched as his flagship product and was an immediate market disruption. Joel recommends that the Habanero pepper should be served in a dry shaker format if you think it’s too hot as all the flavors still come through. The original Habanero shaker is famously known as the hottest Chile pepper accompanied by a dominant sizzling flavor.
Joel Friant realized that the key to a good Habanero pepper is harvesting the peppers when they are ripe as peppers get hotter as they mature. The plants should be dry when harvested to ensure that they are free of diseases that could potentially ruin the flavor of the pepper. The Habaneros belong to a Chinense (not Chinese) variety of pepper that is not unbearably hot and are combined with a superb flavor that can’t be beaten.

In 2012, Joel used online avenues like eBay and Amazon to sell his Habanero pepper. Joel Friant noticed that he could reach a broader market through e-Commerce and marketing the product on the intenet would be much easier. Through an initial training class on ‘how to sell goods on Amazon and eBay,’ Joel was able to master the art of online marketing and came up with the brand name, ‘The Original Habanero Shaker.’ This was the incipient of his astounding success in e-commerce.
Joel learned that he needed to set himself apart from other sellers of the Habaneros product. He offered his customers a sales guarantee that The Original Habanero Shaker contained 100% pure Habanero flakes and it had no additives, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors.
