Steamboat Springs Terry Brown, previously of Wing-Time sauce company, has formed TSB Food Consultants, according to a news release.
Terry and Denise Brown recently sold their Wing-Time brand of Buffalo-style chicken wing sauces after 19 years in business.
Terry Brown now is turning the expertise he garnered through running his own specialty food brand toward helping others “especially those in the startup phase or early years or others who may want to begin working with distributors, brokers or exporters,” according to the release.
The release states that Brown also has lectured at trade shows and industry events.
Brown plans to extend his reach nationwide but also is offering special packages for local companies.
“In the early days, I had industry mentors who helped guide me, so this is kind of my way of giving back to the industry,” Brown said in the release. “As far as I am aware, I am the first specialty food consultant in the area, so that is exciting, as well. I already have one local client and several others have approached me, so we’re off to a good start.”
Brown can be reached at 970-871-1501.
