The first question everyone asks is, “What is a SuckleBuster?” It’s a long story…
THE “Sucker-Buster” was born during the early ’70’s in the imagination of a 10 year old kid growing up in East Texas. One night upon returning from the East Texas State Fair (a revered annual event in my home town of Tyler) Dad asked, “Did you ride the “Sucker-Buster”? It was out back…but hey, they only let the BIG kids ride it”, he said with a huge grin. I had no idea what a Sucker-Buster was, or if my Dad was serious but I wanted to find out. I dreamed it was a big, crazy-spinning, wild ride that could scare you right out-of-your-pants. Had I missed the greatest fair ride of all time? I went back next year and checked out back just to make sure Dad was kidding. He was. But the name stuck around…
Over the years, I experimented with spices and would mix up a little extra seasoning and keep it in the cupboard. Whenever I needed to add a little extra flavor to something, I would use my secret spice recipe, now renamed “SuckleBusters”. At some point we began using the name to describe how I cooked, “Man I ‘Busted some great steaks last night!” Later, a friend invited us to cater his business grand opening. “What do you call yourself?” he asked. I blurted out, “SuckleBusters”. The name stuck and the beginning of a company was born. Little did I know…
In the early 2000’s we became more health conscious and searched for healthier foods. We noticed that all the seasoning we found had; MSG, artificial fillers, dyes, preservatives or ingredients with names you can’t pronounce and this was in the healthy foods section! We decided then and there to produce high quality seasonings that taste great and are healthy too! So in 2006 SuckleBusters Inc. was born.
