ZestFest 2020

Its the zestiest weekend of the year!

ZestFest 2020 is upon us.  We will be making our way to Irving, Texas January 24-26 to take part in ZestFest and The Fiery Food Challenge. The Fiery Food Challenge kicks off ZestFest 2020 and is the longest-running, most prestigious competition of zesty products in the industry. Last year, our Chipotle Bourbon Barbecue Sauce won the People’s Preference Award for barbecue sauce. Bold and flavorful food enthusiasts are invited to enjoy cooking demos by celebrity chefs, live music, interactive contests and thousands of food samples. For more information about ZestFest 2020, visit https://zestfest.net/.
