History of Wings

Frank's RedHot and Wings Have History

The rich heritage of Frank's RedHot dates back to 1918 when pepper
farmer Adam Estilette partnered with Jacob Frank in New Iberia,
Louisiana, to create a sauce perfectly spiced with the rich flavor of
cayenne peppers. Two years later, in 1920, the first bottle of Frank's
RedHot Sauce emerged from Estilette's pickling plant.
