The Story Starts With Grandma “Bunny”.
1971– Working alongside his grandmother, Bunny, a young Tim Lawnhorn was told “Don’t be afraid to season your food well, cook it how you would like to eat it and people will come back for more.”
1980– While attending college in Louisiana, Tim works at a local Cajun & Creole restaurant in Lafayette. The experience triggers a real culinary epiphany, being exposed to the incredible variety of cooking styles, fresh ingredients, spices, and lots and lots of seasonings.
1984– Working as a chef in a restaurant in Denver, Tim begins experimenting with a few different seasoning formulas. Over time, he comes across an interesting blend of herbs and spices that taste phenomenal on just about anything.
1989- Getting his special seasoning just right, Tim is amazed to discover his versatile blend actually changes flavor characteristics and enhances the natural flavor of everything he cooks.
2002– Tim and his family open their own restaurant in the original Haines City building that housed his family’s drugstore. Lawhorn’s Corner Cafe features Tim’s “Signature Seasoning” throughout the menu.
2006– One night a customer, an executive chef with Hormel Meat Company, tells time he just had the best steak of his life. Tim tells him it was his “Signature Seasoning” and the executive encourages Tim to bring the seasoning to market.
