Olde Virden’s was started by Knoxville, Tennessee local Chris Virden. The idea struck Chris as he was enjoying a slice of pizza hundreds of miles in the air, nearing the peak of Mt. LeConte in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He noticed that almost every pizza joint that he had ever been to use the same flat bottle of red pepper flakes, and was sure that there had to be a better tasting option.
After his trip, he came back to his home in Tennessee and started researching the best alternatives for red pepper flakes. After a number of months of testing different peppers and spices, he finally chose his five favorites. Shortly after, he opened up a small family-run facility in Knoxville where the local fresh chilies are dehydrated, ground, and packaged to be shipped.
