-   ABOUT US  -

After more than a decade of working in notable kitchens throughout the US, Chef John Davidson and his wife, Michelle, opened their own successful restaurant: The Crushery. Located in Denver Colorado's historic South Pearl Street neighborhood, The hotspot delighted foodies with homemade bagels, paninis, salads and even an ever-theatrical liquid nitrogen ice cream. The Crushery was beloved by locals and tourists alike.


As The Crushery thrived, Chef John struggled to find food-friendly sauces to complement his popular menu. He found that typical hot sauces had overwhelming notes of vinegar or were so spicy that just a couple of drops burnt the palate. What John craved was a lineup of hot sauces that would make flavors sing. That’s when John and Michelle took to the kitchen and Cooper’s Small Batch-named after their son-was born.
