McCormick For Chefs Introduces Two Frank’s RedHot Products for Patrons with Varying Heat Prefer

HUNT VALLEY, MD – McCormick For Chefs has launched two new products under Frank’s RedHot for foodservice operators, Nashville Hot Seasoning and Mild Wings Sauce. As the #1 hot sauce in the world1 and the inventor of the Buffalo wing flavor in 1964, Frank’s RedHot is the expert in heat. Over 50% of global consumers choose spicy options when dining out and 60% of consumers reported they are eating spicier foods today compared to a year ago.2 These new menu solutions are geared to help operators excite the growing population of patrons with preferences on opposite sides of the heat-level spectrum.

Frank’s RedHot Mild Wings Sauce

This sauce offers a mild heat with all the flavor and spices of the original wings sauce. This versatile sauce works on menu items from breakfast and appetizers to salads and main dishes. Available in a one-gallon jug, it’s ready to use right out of the bottle—no need to dilute a spicier sauce to deliver more mild taste.

Backed by a brand guests trust and love, this sauce also scored high with consumers in a blind taste test. Frank’s Mild Wings Sauce was reported to exceed consumer expectations and is preferred compared to existing mild offerings in the back of house.3
