 About Us

Leeds finally has a chilli shop! What an experience, free tasting tables, Museum of Pain and chilli challenges. It’s also a unique and humorous gift shop.
The Chilli shop is owned by Frank Jay, one of those people who makes ideas happen.  The founder of the Fiery Foods Festival along with Paul Robinson, the first UK chilli festival of its type, with entertainment, chilli eating competitions, that toured, and instigated the National Chilli Awards. Frank became a Director of various other Food and Drink Festivals (now retired to focus on shop). Being a Food Festival Director and organising the outdoor events built the skills to ensures a great festival atmosphere in the shop. Focusing on originality, quality, customer service, local produce and of course foods that taste great as well as being hot. Now the shop has moved to Leeds to be close to all the great producers in the North, based outside the Merrion Shopping Centre to be near the exciting Leeds first direct Arena… the first dedicated chilli shop in the north awaits your visit.
Can’t wait to see you in the Chilli-Shop and to find out your taste bud’s heat tolerance!
