#1 Could The Sriracha Sauce Plant Come to Texas After All?05-01-2014, 06:53 PM
Sriracha-loving Denton City Councilman Kevin Roden is getting one step closer to his dream of having the cultishly adored rooster sauce's manufacturing plant relocate to his favorite small town.
After manufacturer Huy Fong Foods was hit with a lawsuit by the city of Irwindale, Cal. for irritating the eyes of locals with its factory's delicious chili pepper vapor, Denton City Councilman Kevin Roden sprang into action, posting an open letter calling for Huy Fong to relocate to his city.

That would make it real handy to pick up a case once or twice a year.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

How Sriracha Sauce Became The Favorite Condiment Of The Republican Party
Like many Texans and Americans, Jason Villalba loves Sriracha.
Villalba, a Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives, puts it on, or in, just about anything. Eggs. Pho, the Vietnamese noodle soup. Even lasagna.
"I've been a huge fan for the last decade," Villalba told Business Insider in an interview.
But lately, Villalba and other Texas Republicans have taken a different interest in Sriracha. They want the company to move its operations from California to the Lone Star State, in light of what they say are California's crushing regulations, high taxation, and burdensome cost of living.
The hot sauce has become a major topic of conversation in both Texas — where the state's Republicans are looking to score another business victory over California Democrats — and in California, where its Republicans are using the opportunity to slam the state's regulations and high taxation.

41 of the 61 complaints about the Siracha plant came from 4 homes so it appears this is another case of the tyranny of the minority.
The first complaint was from the son of one of the Irwindale city councilmen.
The city of Irwindale is a pit. Literally a pit. A large majority of the city is gravel pits that service various concrete companies. As of 2010 the population of the city is 1,422 residents.
The town is best known for a once famous, now defunct dragstrip which was converted to a Miller Brewery in the late 1970's and a place al davis considered moving the oakland raiders to back in the 1980's and now hot sauce. The top 10 employers of the city employee 6,792 workers. The town is not a destination city, but more of a city you drive through on the way to somewhere else and is clearl an industrial town. That the situation over the Sirracha plant has gotten to this point proves how inept the city government is. They need the tax dollars the plant generates, yet are willing to make life difficult for the company and risk losing it all to another city or state.
Will the last business in california please turn off the lights on the way out....
