Gourmet Naturals Story
CAPTAIN TOADY'S TASTY SAUCES
Established in 1987.
Captain Toady's was created by a local group of entrepreneurial friends consisting of chefs, food producers, artists and merchants in the Seattle area. Chef Sheridan from the world famous 13 Coins restaurant, was the original sauce creator of the group and was known for two things: his parties and his incredible sauces. Friends would tell him that he should bottle and sell the stuff, it was so tasty. But they didn't know what to call it. Because they felt that Sheridan's nickname, "The Toad," wasn't an appetizing name for a product, so they added the appellation `"Captain'" and a product line was born.
In 2002 Puget Sound Foods acquired Captain Toady's. Over the next 20 years Puget Sound Foods continues to create new northwest products and expanding distribution across the US & Canada with its Captain Toady's Gourmet Naturals.
Pike's Market Naturals Story
PIKE PIER was competed in 1871 and is located on the Puget Sound in Seattle, Washington.
In 1902 Schwabacher Bros. & Company established itself on neighboring Pier 6 and became Seattle's first wholesaler. By 1904 Pike Pier was the central waterfront headquarters for fish merchants and fishing fleets. Pacific Net and Twine was originally located on Pier 6 and moved to Pike Pier 8 in 1913. Pacific Net and Twine, from then until after World War II, was home for fisherman and merchants who served and represented them. Voluntary fishing groups (like the Fishing Vessel Owners Association and the Purse Seiners' Association) took residence on the Pike Pier. A variety of sail-makers, fish brokers, and other specialists in supplies for the fisheries had offices there as well. In 1927 Pacific Net & Twine changes its name to Pacific Marine Supply Co. In 1966, Pacific Marine Supply Company and the Schwabacher Bros. & Company merged and renamed as Pacific Marine Schwabacher, Inc.
In 1979 Puget Sound Foods founder enters the wholesale business by working as a purchasing agent for Pacific Marine Schwabacher.
The preservation and celebration of the Pike Pier continues in the Puget Sound Region. Pike Pier 8 is now Pier 58 and is home of Seattle's Waterfront Park and Aquarium.
The Pike Pier Fisherman products bring over 148 years of history full circle. At Puget Sound Food we continue to celebrate this rich history by working with local merchants, farmers markets and producers in the great pacific northwest and beyond.
