Staff Spotlight: Nick

AllSpicer Nick

Nick joined the AllSpice team during the mad rush of the 2023-24 holiday season and first split his time between our production facility and the East Village shop in Des Moines.

These days he spends nearly all his AllSpice hours in West Des Moines at the production facility carefully packaging spices for you to enjoy.

We love Nick and we're sure you all will too. As usual, we asked him our hard-hitting questions to help you get to know him a bit better. 

What do you like to cook?

Nick told us that he loves to cook just about anything involving fire. "Barbecuing meats is top of the list, but I also love roasted veggies on the grill too," he said.

He used Denise's Mustard (kit here) on ribs a few weeks ago and is also a fan of our Mesquite Barbecue Rub and Espresso Rub

What’s your favorite food?

"Ribs from Jim’s Rib Haven in Rock Island, Illinois," is what he shared. While his response was super specific, it wasn't a surprise - Nick grew up in the Quad Cities area.

What do you do when you’re not at Production?

"I love to hang out with family & friends," Nick said. He also shared that he's an Iowa Hawkeyes fan - maybe we should send him over to the Iowa River Landing shop! Nick is also a full-time Realtor, so he keeps himself pretty busy.

What do you like most about working at AllSpice?

"The people are great and I'm inspired to cook more from being around hundreds of delicious spices all day," he said. 

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

"I met my wife while working on a locked psychiatric unit in college," is the fun fact Nick shared with us. We opted not to ask any follow-up questions.

How did you learn about AllSpice?

"I learned about the shop from the wonderful & amazing AllSpicer Michael," he said. If he's friends with Michael, we know he has a good sense of humor and can handle a little sass!
