A business that opened late last year is bringing fire — and Williamsburg-themed hot sauces — to the Premium Outlets.
Pepper Palace opened Oct. 26, 2018 in the Premium Outlets, selling hot sauces, barbecue sauces, seasonings, pickled goods and more.
The retailer is located between Vineyard Vines and the Vans Outlet, said Laurel Haislip, a PR representative on behalf of the Premium Outlets center’s management.
“The addition has been very well-received by both locals and visitors alike who frequent Williamsburg Premium Outlets,” she wrote in an email.
Pepper Palace offers a four-sauce, Williamsburg-themed gift pack, as well as individual Williamsburg sauces.
Those sauces include the medium-heat Hamilton hot sauce, mild City of Williamsburg hot sauce, medium Historic Triangle sauce and William & Mary 1699 hot sauce.
What is Pepper Palace?
Pepper Palace has more than 30 retail locations throughout the United States and Canada.
The business was first opened by Craig and Tanya Migawa in 1989 as a kiosk in a mall in Wisconsin, according to the Pepper Palace “About Us” page online.
The family them moved to Tennessee in 1997, where they opened up a small Pepper Palace store.
The business has expanded to South Carolina, Florida, Missouri and other states, as well as Canada.
Some of Pepper Palace’s locations have special recipes for certain sauces that accompany the location’s theme. Special recipe locations include Gatlinburg, Tennessee; San Francisco, California; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and more.
