One of the truly great things that comes with residing in America is the raw entrepreneurial opportunity that is possible for those with the right skills and inclination. Just about every sector of business sees its variety of entrepreneurs, paving their own path through the marketplace, adapting and changing, taking on new and often times revolutionary ways to make profits.
Joel Friant is one of these entrepreneurs and beyond just simply having a knack for product creation and real estate, he is one of the successful individuals that truly wants to share his knowledge and helps others to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams.
His path began in the real estate sector, typically doing sales or home remodel projects but in 1995 Joel entered into the restaurant arena and created one of the world’s very first fast-food concepts that revolved around Thai cuisine and this would get him dubbed as ”The Thai Guy” within many circles.
It was during his exploration of Thai cuisine and the management of his restaurants that he discovered and then fell completely in love with the habanero pepper and after a trip to Jamaica he grew a love for a particular type of this hot pepper called the Scotch Bonnet.
He then went on to manufacture and market a product called ‘The Habanero Shaker’ which was comprised of simply the dried and crushed peppers for the home user to apply to their meals for a little extra kick.
His Habanero Shaker saw extreme levels of success, so much so that it was found all over chain grocery stores throughout Washington state as well as being available in online markets such as Amazon.
With the success of his Habaner Shaker, Joel moved on to an area of real estate that involves buying foreclosed homes, repairing them and then reselling them, commonly called ‘fix and flip’ which would lead him to running a branch of an extremely innovative mortgage company.
With the rise of internet marketplaces, the Habanero Shaker can now be found once again on global market places such as Amazon, back by popular demand and ready to be served at your dinner table today.
