Brighton Chilli ShopWe visited the Brighton Chilli Shop last year and it had an impressive range of products. Tony the new owner had big plans for making it a one stop shop for all things chilli.

Well that expansion has now spread on-line with a new e-commerce enabled site replace the old informational web site.

Brighton Chilli Shop Online

The shop is still undergoing a lot of development, but it is great to see the shop going from strength to strength.

Brighton Chilli Shop This weekend we found ourselves in Brighton for a non chilli event (I know what was I doing). So to make sure I got my Chilli fix we went to see the new owner of what was the ChilliPepperPete Chilli Shop. The Brighton Chilli Shop is still in the same location at 73 Trafalgar Street, Brighton. BN1 4EB. The signage has changed but the shop still contains an Aladdin cave of chilli goodies.

Tony the new owner of the shop could not be more welcoming, he has a bright smile and is very proud of the changes he is making and is keen to learn the trade. Fresh out of university in 2014, he had heard that the ChilliPepperPete company was looking to sell the shop as a going concern and so he contacted them and the deal was done.

There are tasting going on in the shop all the time, and with such a large range it takes a while to see what there is on offer. Tony is just starting out on social media, so follow him on twitter and Facebook. The shops web site is coming so visit and enter your email to be notified when they get it all online.

Here at the ChileFoundry we wish Tony good luck with his new venture.
