So at this point you're probably asking... WHO is Papa & WHAT is the story behind Papa's Pepper? Watch this FOX 10 Phoenix News video to learn more!!
Having a passion for hot spices and flavorful taste, Lenny Abbott found that it was difficult to find the right combination. Most choices seemed to overwhelm the flavor of his food. This frustration led him to create his own blend of spices that would meet these goals. After selecting a wide array of peppers, carefully drying and blending them with care, he felt that his unique blend was just perfect. As he shared his pepper blend with friends and family, they agreed this was ideal for any dish.
Sharing his pepper blend with family, friends and a lot of strangers while traveling with such great reviews it only seemed right to share them with you!
Unfortunately, tragedy struck the Abbott family when they found out that Lenny has an inoperable brain tumor. Devastated by this news, Papa's Pepper took the backseat.
Sean Mannello, Lenny's close friend, one day asked Lenny if he could write down the delicious recipe for Papa's Pepper so he could recreate the magic and share with anyone who was interested. It was at this moment that Lenny realized he could have Sean continue on his legacy of Papa's Pepper. Sean gladly took over the business and promised to keep the Abbott family involved with Papa's Pepper. In honoring Lenny's memory, Sean has promised a portion of the profits to Lenny & Shari for the lifetime of the company (which will hopefully be forever!). Sean has also promised the Abbott family that he will make an annual donation of the proceeds to the MD Anderson Cancer Center for Cancer Research to honor Lenny's journey and memory.
Sean hand packs each bottle of spices with love and care, wanting to recreate the same experience that Lenny curated. Each box is hand packed with your order and filled with a gratitude for life and legacy.
Help us keep Lenny's memory living on and Sean's journey growing by sharing Papa's Pepper with your family and friends!
