Joel Friant is an entrepreneur who has taken his love for food to a new level by turning it into a successful business. He is the founder of the original Habanero Shaker, which he came upon during his time working in the field of hospitality. He has also started up numerous other several side businesses that have supplemented his net worth, making him the successful name that he is today. In addition to running his own businesses, he is also known for helping other entrepreneurs who have ideas that can alter the industry in some way. He believes that through his experience, he can help others reach success.
One of the first professional arrays that Friant worked in was in the real estate sector. He served as a home remodeller before he decided that he wanted to start up his own business and become an entrepreneur. He decided to open up his own restaurant as his first venture and decided to start up the first Thai fast food restaurant. The restaurant proved to be an immense success and resulted in Friant opening up more franchises of the restaurant.
While Friant was running his business, he was introduced to his first Habanero creation. Friant had already been introduced to Habanero peppers in the past when he was younger, but these had only been a few rare occasions. When he was working in the restaurant industry, he realized that he could use this in a way that could introduce a new set of flavoring into the restaurant that its patrons would like. His love for the pepper also traces back to the time he visited the country of Jamaica and got to taste the pepper in some of the more authentic preparations.
After Friant introduced this on the menu, he realized that Habanero wasn’t readily available on the market. He had to search a lot just to find the ingredients for his own dishes, and if people wanted to get them to use at home, they would have to spend a lot of time searching or pay for something exorbitant. There were Habanero products on the market, which is what lead to Friant releasing the Habanero Shaker on the market, and the rest is history!
