Columbia, SC (January 7, 2018) – Smoke Hall Foods L3C, the veteran-owned and operated parent company of The General’s Hot Sauce, has announced it will relocate its business headquarters from 804B S. Edisto Ave to 2651 Shop Rd. in Columbia.
The General’s Hot Sauce produces all-natural, small batch, award-winning hot sauces using exclusively American-made ingredients, according to the company’s website, which says the company’s primary objectives include creating jobs for veterans and supporting American farmers. The General’s Hot Sauce donates a meaningful percentage of its profits to organizations that support American Veterans, troops and their families.
“Although we’ll always have agricultural roots in Louisiana, our business and bottling operations have always been based in South Carolina,” said CEO Dan Ballister. “We’re growing quickly, and we need more space not only for warehousing a larger overall business operation, but also to support pepper processing here in South Carolina given our recent partnership with Rawl Farms in Lexington. We could not be more excited to plant our flag a little deeper in the Palmetto state.”
William Mills of Wilson Kibler and Mason Harpe of HR Developers, LLC represented the tenant in the 3,500-square-foot lease.
