Food Artisans: Serious Eats Features Kimmee and Evan Hoffman

A while back, Stephanie Klose at Serious Eats posted a great little piece about us. Thank you Stephanie for spreading the love!

Greenpoint Trading Co. got its start when Evan Hoffman got a job cold-calling for a bulk wholesale spice company. Eventually, he transitioned into sales, then started his own wholesale spice company, Brooklyn Spice Co., with Kimmee Arndt. When they decided to break into the retail market with the kinds of spice blends and rubs they were already making for their own use, Arndt says, they got a permit from the city to package in their living room and stored all of the product in their hallway, though they graduated to a warehouse in Greenpoint soon after.

Joint Project with OMR Goods!

Our first collaboration with our dear friends at OMR Goods!  We teamed up with the Grilled Cheesus champs on a custom blend that you can only find at their site: – Jesus H. Spice!  For a while we thought that you couldn’t improve upon the perfection that is a grilled cheese sandwich.  But after heaping some Jesus H. Spice on to a grilled cheesus, we knew we’d been wrong.  With our friends Meg Sheehan and Rob Corso, we have created a flavorful combination that will forever make us remember the hundreds of sandwiches we ate growing up with a little less enthusiasm, for we now know what a grilled cheese sandwich can truly be.


We love working with our friends, and we love to source locally whenever we can.  We hope this collaboration is the start of a lot more of that. Check out more of what OMR Goods has to offer here:
