Our Story Starts in Italy
In 2004, co-founders Davey Parker and Cheryl Coleman visited Venice, Italy, where they first tasted chili oil. A couple years later, Davey moved to Costa Rica and noticed that all the fine Italian restaurants served chili oil on the tables ... as a condiment!
As an Italian food lover -- and pizza fanatic -- Davey enjoyed the chili oil for over 10 years in Costa Rica, until finally the light went on and he asked himself the question: Why don't the U.S. pizza and Italian restaurants serve chili oil?
Well, of course, there was no reasonable answer -- because Davey believed that chili oil was the absolute best "heat" flavor for pizza and all Italian food.
"Sriracha is great for for sushi and Asian food, but not for Italian food," Davey said. "And, it is just wrong to put a vinegar-based hot sauce on pizza or any Italian food."
So, in September 2015, Naples Drizzle was born.
"Nothing pairs better with Italian food than Naples Drizzle," Davey said. "We are 'The Italian Hot Sauce,' the perfect condiment that adds just the right heat -- with no vinegar or sugar flavor.
"Don't change the flavor of your food with those other 'hot sauces,'" Davey says, "... enhance it with Naples Drizzle: the first, the original, and the true Italian Hot Sauce!"
