‘The Planet’s Number One Hot Shop’ is the latest retailer to join Cincinnati Premium Outlets this year

Cincinnati Premium Outlets is set to welcome its third new store in the first quarter of this year.

Pepper Palace, which sells gourmet hot sauce, BBQ sauce, salsa, pickled items, jellies and jams, beef jerky and more, will join Cincinnati Premium Outlets’ roster of nearly 100 retailers in March.

Touting itself as “the Planet’s Number One Hot Shop,” Pepper Palace invites shoppers to experience a variety of small batch, handcrafted, natural, and award-winning sauces while “perusing a pantry of seasonings and sizzling, stylish apparel.”

This will be Pepper Palace’s first Ohio location. It operates more than 30 retail locations in the United States and Canada and plans expansion into the West, Northeast and Midwestern U.S. and Central Canada.

"The center's newest addition honors our pledge to provide shoppers with experiences they won't find anywhere else, while furthering Cincinnati Premium Outlets' portfolio of specialty food retailers."

Sandwiched between Wilson's Leather and Lids and Christopher & Banks, Pepper Palace will boast an array of featured items such as Ghost Pepper Rub, Time's Up Reaper Hot Sauce, Most Excellent Cocktail Sauce Ever!, Most Excellent Bloody Mary Mix Ever!, Maple Chipotle Rub and more.
