FSB Member Stories: Frank Jay, Chilli-Shop

FSB Member Story 15 May 2023

Frank Jay invited us into his specialist chilli-shop in Leeds to discover how he’s supporting independent producers.

When Frank Jay started a vegetarian market in Brighton and booked his first vendor - a chilli stallholder - he never imagined that years later he’d open the first chilli shop in Leeds. After running a successful chilli festival, Frank wanted to find a way to stock and support independent producers. The Chilli-Shop offers a wide range of hot sauces, chilli plants and humourous gifts, including fan-favourites featured on the famous YouTube show, Hot Ones.
