Penzeys Spices History

Penzyes spices logo

Penzeys Spices was founded in 1957 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by William and Ruth Penzey as a coffee and spice store. Over time, the couple found that spices were their biggest selling items, so coffee was dropped from their inventory.

William Penzey, Jr. worked at his parents’ store while growing up. In 1986, Penzey Jr. convinced his parents to start a catalog business. This proved to be successful and the company began to grow slowly.

Today, Penzeys Spices has 69 locations in 7 states. The company still offers catalog sales, as well as an active eCommerce site. Penzy Jr. became involved in a controversy when he sent an email to customers expressing his disappointment in the election of Donald Trump as President of the US in November of 2016. This led to Trump supporters calling for a boycott.

Dear Mr. Penzey: I recently received an e-mail version of your newsletter regarding voting. I want to let you know that I did vote and I did it with my dollars. I returned every single Penzey item in my kitchen to your store in Hillcrest, San Diego, California. It was over $500 worth of product. Your newsletter was insulting and condescending. I don’t need you to tell me how to vote and in process tell me how awful I am if I vote contrary to your wishes. Just so you know, I am a registered Democrat. Congratulations, you have taken food and cooking which is something that can unite everyone and made it into something divisive. I hope other people will also vote with their dollars.

I totally agree with Kathleen. I realize we have freedom of speech but to use your hatred and emails to customers who put food on your table I think is apalling. I for one will not be returning to Penzeys in Phoenix And rest assured I have sent your emails onto everyone I know and you have lost customers. Instead of griping and complaining with hate emails why don’t you as an American citizen go on your knees and pray if you really want to make a change in our once was beautiful United States. People like you only cause more division instead of coming together. I hope you’re happy with your emails because I am very disappointed with people like you who do nothing but cause division and hatred among the American people. As the CEO I would expect that you had more intelligence.

My comment is simply this, I love your products but I don’t love that way you mingle political view points that are biased within your catalogs and ads. A business or corporation is not the appropriate place to get political. I have been noticing these comments for several years now. As a customer of many years, I am not sure if I will continue to purchase your products.

I had a stirring of hope for a return to civility when I read the subject line ‘Time to Say We are Sorry’ of the July 6 email.
I was mistaken, though; you weren’t apologizing to us Penzey-email subscribers. Most of us signed up for notifications of sales and product information, not a blog about your political views.
When one of the stage actors in Hamilton excoriated the Vice President (sitting in the audience) from the stage, Little Steven van Zandt (of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band) took him to task, not because he disagreed with the actor’s views, but because of his abuse of the VP, who was there as a member of the audience (Rolling Stone article). I’m afraid you are guilty of the same abuse of your (captive) audience: if we want to keep informed of Penzey products and sales, the price is having to be subjected to political indoctrination and mischaracterizationing of your opponents, without recourse to presenting opposite viewpoints to that same audience. That is very disrespectful and abusive, and feels like bullying, and unfortunately is becoming an all too common reaction from the Left since America rejected the leftward policies this last election.

If Penzey’s wants to heal the world, start within the company: Remove any political talk from the emails and move it to the proper venue, such as a Facebook page or Twitter.
Charity begins at home.
