Makers of Texas Pete moving headquarters to downtown Winston-Salem

3 posts in this topic

TW Garner Food Co., the maker of national known Texas Pete, is moving its headquarters site to Downtown Winston-Salem where it has signed a 12-year lease with Nash Building LLC for the 14,500-square-foot second floor of the Nash-Bolich building off Fourth Street. The move represents the Garner family’s recognition and appreciation of the downtown revitalization effort, as well as a desire to add their infusion of innovation and creativity that goes hand in hand with making Texas Pete Hot Sauce – the country’s No. 3 hot-sauce brand. Besides a full line of hot sauces, wing sauces and seafood sauce under the Texas Pete brand, the company also offers CHA! by Texas Pete sriracha sauce, and salsa and tortilla strips under the Green Mountain Gringo brand. The company will create space on the back side of the building, spilling over into the parking lot, for an expanded test kitchen that will be visible from the new corporate boardroom. That’s where the company not only experiments with new sauces, but also invites restaurant chefs and clients, such as grocery store and discount chains, to find ways to incorporate their products into recipes for their menus and deli offerings.

Mayor Allen Joines said that “because TW Garner and Texas Pete are synonymous with Winston Salem’s history and growth, it is entirely fitting to have this historic company as part of the downtown’s resurgence.” The company made its first downtown splash by launching the Texas Pete Culinary Arts Festival last September. Glenn Garner, who has lived downtown for 10 years, said the company used the same reasoning for moving downtown as it did for sponsoring the culinary festival. “Repurposing an older building spoke to us,” Glenn Garner said. “Being part of a neighborhood with good visibility spoke to us.

Thank you Zalo for the wonderful photo sharing.  The interiors of this headquarters are very cutting edge.  However, the exterior I would have to describe, in the words of Prince Charles, as a "monstrous carbuncle" on the hip of a gracious elegant lady.
