About Our Company
It all started when founder and U.S. Marine Bill D.was stationed in Korea back in the late ’80s. Bill discovered that MREs tasted like @#$%, but by mixing certain MREs, he could re-create the consistency and flavor of chili. Soon, word got out. Along line wrapped around the outside of his tent with marines longing for the flavors of home. A foodie was born.
A decade ago, a friend gifted Bill with savory spices from Europe. Bill suspected the spices contained too much sodium and MSG, since his and his wife’s wedding rings got tight every time he cooked with them. He decided to reverse engineer the spices, since they’d become his family’s new addiction. He spent months experimenting in his Midwest kitchen, perfecting the spice blends for pork, chicken and beef. In no time, friends were requesting his magic blends. They became the most sought-after food phenom for Christmas and birthday gifts every year. People would come over and leave their empty jars on his kitchen counter, hoping that he’d do a refill.
This is where CORSPICE partner and “Chief Tasting Officer” Bob Moring enters the picture. As Godfather to Bill’s kids, Bob would visit regularly visit from Arizona. Bill was always cooking for Bob, and Bob saw the growing demand for Bill’s spice blends. One night, after a few beers, (okay, maybe it was more than a few) Bob slammed his hand down on the counter and proclaimed, “I’ll invest. Let’s DO this!” Bob doesn’t recall this is how it went down, but that’s our story, and we’re sticking to it. Anyhow, Bob did invest, and here we are.
