About Our Gourmet Pickles
Started in May 2012, Founder and Chief Pickling Officer, Andrew Rainey found himself with extra time and money after a breakup. While strolling the aisles of a grocery store he landed in front of one of his favorite foods, pickles.
"When you are
in a pickle,
eat your way out!"
All he saw were the same old pickles, same ingredients, same size, same brands and same old flavor. Sure they are good, but he wanted exceptional. Instead of buying pickles, he bought vinegar, salt and cucumbers.
The next day he went to his grandmothers house to try out this new hobby. They made the Spicy Dill Spears with no recipe or idea how to make pickles. They just enjoyed each others company and had fun.
After teaming up with a few friends, countless hours of experimenting, getting feedback from friends and family - Randy's Pickles has evolved into more than just a weekend hobby. Creating a better pickle, in a bigger jar with bigger flavor.
We used the Cleveland Culinary Launch & Kitchen for a few years to get us started.
Now we produce out of our own 1000 square foot facility in Cleveland, Ohio. Every jar of pickles is hand packed in small batches using fresh ingredients.
