Enjoying the Adventure: Introducing the Old Town Spice Shop Blog!

Since we opened our doors in 2010, Old Town Spice Shop has been committed to providing Northern Colorado with the highest quality spices, teas, coffee, blends and seasonings, salts, sugars, extracts, and peppers in the country. But our passion for flavor and freshness started a lot earlier than that.

In 1985 our family, the Godbey family, moved to Colorado. We fell in love with the mountains, plains and the amazing people of the Front Range. Eventually schools, jobs, marriages, grandchildren followed which has resulted in a permanent home for our family in an area that we have completely fallen in love with.

We soon realized that while there was an array of phenomenal restaurants scattered throughout the front range, what was missing was a shop where people could buy fresh spices and blends tailored to the Colorado way of life. In September in 2010 we decided to open up our very own spice shop. What followed was in intense time of research – we looked into every spice shop we could find, including making trips to spice shops across the country to see what information we could glean. We even looked into several franchises but came to the conclusion that in order for us to partner with our community the way that we truly wanted to, we needed to be more flexible than any franchise would allow us to be.

We decided to build our own business that would better serve the people and lifestyle of the Fort Collins area in a truly delicious and local way. From conception to opening day only took 65 days. We opened our original Old Town Spice Shop on December 3, 2010 at 220 Linden Street and later moved to our current location at 130A South College Ave on February 26, 2014.

Thus began an amazing partnership with foodies and food lovers across Northern Colorado. This is our business and our passion. Our large variety of products allows us to serve everyone, from the person that says they can’t cook to gourmet chefs. And we’ll be speaking to each of you across the spectrum within this blog.

The Old Town Spice Shop blog will be published regularly and will cover a wide variety of topics including:

  • Products available in our store and online
