Joel Friant and the rise of the Original Habanero Shaker
The Original Habanero Shaker, developed by businessman and entrepreneur Joel Friant, is a popular product that first appeared on major grocery store shelves in Washington in 1995.
Joel had several years of business experience before developing the Original Habanero Shaker. He began his career by working in the real estate business. Joel initially performed two tasks in this industry: he sold homes as a real estate agent, and he also remodeled older homes to prepare them for the market.
Joel decided to pursue other business ventures and in 1995 he opened his first fast food restaurant. This concept was the first in the United States to feature Thai cuisine in a fast food setting. During this time Joel also had the idea for the Original Habanero Shaker.
By talking to his restaurant’s customers, Joel discovered that many had never had a Habanero pepper before visiting his restaurant. He also discovered that many people really enjoyed Habanero peppers.
He decided to dry and flake habanero peppers and to package them in a way that everyone, not just qualified chefs, could use them on their food. The Original Habanero Shaker became a hit and his customers loved being able to add the spice and smoky flavor of the habanero pepper to any dish or recipe.
Joel began to look at his own success and the success of others and try to develop ways to teach his methods to people who wished to become successful. He came up with the Income Thermostate and began to teach seminars over the web. These seminars were popular and effective so Joel published a few articles about success.
Joel continues to teach others how to achieve success. He has begun to use cryptocurrencies as a way for people to invest money to later put towards their business. He has also reintroduced the Original Habanero Shaker and has made it available on his website.
