- About Us
Our mission is to provide the many home kitchen users a sturdy product to organize, visualize and easily access both their everyday and occasionally used flavors of life.
Vertical Spice was established in 2012 to share our unique kitchen cabinet storage innovations with other home cooks. We have assembled over 35,000 units in our Minnesota shop and shipped them to all points in the US and Canada and also Asia, Europe and Australia/New Zealand.
Our Patented design (U.S. Patent Number 9,282,821 B2) was developed after years of unsuccessful searches for a spice rack that did it all. The “Spice Rack Drawer” and “Storage Solution Drawer” solved our needs by giving us easy access to all our spices and flavors in a compact space. We no longer tip over, spin-off, duplicate or lose containers in our cabinet. Our storage organization keeps expanding within our own home’s shelves as we enjoy the benefits of an efficient method to reach those back-row jars hiding in many cabinets.
We have worked hard to design a rugged product that will reliably function for years. Our manufacturing partners and suppliers help ensure we will continue to produce the best product for our customers at a competitive price. The materials in our designs are sourced both locally and internationally. We have sought out earth friendly materials wherever possible. The Cream units are made from PolyTuf HDPE. We are really excited about this strong, easy-to-clean and good looking material from recycled sources. The Maple for our top end products is sourced and prepared in Northern Minnesota. We will continue to create innovative products meeting our customer’s needs, both known and not yet imagined.
The founding “we” of Vertical Spice is Linda and Scott. Linda is the kitchen artist, continually searching for the next over-the-top recipe and always browsing through our cabinets for the prescribed spices. She is the quality control expert of our designs, whose input has refined the many prototypes until the final product is just right. Scott is the organizer, designer and builder with a goal to meet Linda’s standards for an innovative kitchen solution to storage needs. He has many years of experience in manufacturing and operations for companies growing from start-ups to established entities. Between the two and the evolving company of Vertical Spice, the strategy is to keep exceeding our customer’s expectations.
We assemble all products and maintain a finished goods inventory to ensure next-day fulfillment of your order.
Our Vertical Spice Family of employees is highly skilled, conscientious, quality driven, and fun to be with everyday. Here are some of us, clockwise from upper left, Nick, Roger, Sabrina and Katie.
