Papa's Pepper may be forced to close in 2025 ...

*** Updated 6/7/24 ***
To our most valued customers,

I hope this message finds you well. As the owner of Papa’s Pepper, I am reaching out to you today with a heartfelt request for your support in keeping our business alive in 2024 and into 2025.

Since our inception over three years ago, Papa’s Pepper has been dedicated to providing you with high-quality, handcrafted hot pepper products that add flavor and personalized levels of spiciness to your meals. While we have seen success in terms of revenue, with $45,000 generated thus far, we have unfortunately struggled to achieve profitability.

Currently, we have approximately 550 bottles of Papa’s Pepper Extreme and Papa’s Pepper Dragon’s Dust in inventory (425 and 125 respectively). However, we still owe a significant amount of money - $5000 - from a loan my wife and I gave the business for our last production run. Despite our best efforts and a non-existent marketing budget, without increased sales and customer referrals, we are at risk of facing financial losses that could potentially lead to the closure of Papa’s Pepper.

We are committed to breaking even again this year and are prepared to front the costs for the next production run if necessary. However, with rising expenses and limited customer referrals, we need your help now more than ever. Each and every one of our customers plays a crucial role in our success.

To ensure the longevity of Papa’s Pepper, we kindly ask for your assistance in referring a small handful of customers each year. By spreading the word about our products and sharing your love for Papa’s Pepper with your family, friends, and colleagues, you can help us reach new audiences and grow our customer base.  

We just need all of our customers to own referring a customer a quarter or so while we're small.  If that happens, we'll explode with growth.

As a token of our appreciation for your support, we are offering a special promotion on our website: Buy One Get One 50% Off with promo code BOGO50. We hope that if you believe in Papa’s Pepper and want to see us continue to thrive in the future, you will consider making an extra effort in recommending us to those within your circle of influence.

Your loyalty and advocacy mean the world to us, and we are truly grateful for your ongoing support. Together, we can ensure that Papa’s Pepper remains a staple in kitchens everywhere for years to come.

Thank you for being part of the Papa’s Pepper family.
