We love food. That's why we worked for years in the hospitality industry. With careers that span every aspect of running a restaurant, we struck out on our own. We established our catering company, The 12th and Richards Co., in 2019 to bring our unique ingredients and flavors to the market. That year we sent out custom spice kits to family and friends and named it Sandcastle, because the salt looked like it came right off the beach. We had no idea they would be a huge hit! Everyone wanted more, and we were happy to provide. Seeing our loved ones get in the kitchen and cook more often meant more to us than providing dinner ever could! We realized that our salts and spices were at the core of who we are, and what we want to do.
