OUR STORY

Malissa Lawson has been spicing up East Nashville with her eclectic blend of seasonings since the Fall of 2013. Though she first fell in love with the idea of starting a spice business back in 2001, it wasn’t until several years later, when she got to experience the spice markets of the Middle East and Europe first hand in countries like Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Greece and Italy, that she was inspired to start making & selling her own spice blends.

Propelled to live her life to the fullest after losing her mother, grandparents and aunt to cancer, Malissa decided it was time to act on her inspiration. After watching numerous independent businesses spring up in East Nashville, where she’s lived for 16 years, she created her first spice blend for her company-- The “Original” All-Purpose Seasoning, a.k.a. “37206 Mix”.

She also decided that, for her, it was important to incorporate cancer-fighting spices like turmeric, garlic, rosemary, oregano and coriander into her signature spice blend. Unlike many other spice mixtures and rubs, which are often created with just a few foods in mind, Malissa’s blend goes brilliantly on almost anything. It’s perfect on poultry, seafood, beef, pork, veggies, grilled foods, stews & soups, deviled eggs, coleslaw, potato, egg, pasta, tuna & chicken salads. Malissa knew she had found something special when she first tried her blend on scrambled eggs and realized it took even a basic breakfast staple to a whole new level.
