Chef's Brannon Florie and Chris Wehking formed Floking Artisan Products in 2015, after years of working together opening and managing restaurants. The duo, with help from Lindsay Lenehan and Renee Florie, decided to start a product line that shares their passion for all things spicy, fermented, preserved and pickled. Hand produced and packaged by Florie and Wehking, Floking Artisan Products are all natural and made with love. 

 

Our very first release, Red Jalapeno Hot Sauce combines the best aspects of our favorite products - the acidic tang and thickness of a vinegar base ( Cholula and Crystal) with red jalapeno heat (Sriracha) - to create the ideal table red hot sauce.

Lindsay Lenehan

Owner

 

 

 

Growing up outside of Cleveland, Ohio on her family's horse farms, Lindsay Lenehan was raised with an appreciation for hard work and passionate careers.   She chose to forego the family business to attend American University in Washington, DC, and in 2006 graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Public Communication.  Lindsaywent on to pursue a career in the music industry as a talent buyer, event

coordinator, publicist, and social media manager.   Over the next eight years, her career would take her to San Francisco, New York City, and Philadelphia working for such prestigious organizations as Another Planet Entertainment, HeadCount, and CEG Presents.

 

By 2014 Lindsay found herself disillusioned with the music industry and looking for a fresh start.  Having heard amazing things from her Father and Stepmother residing in Park Circle, she decided to check out Charleston.  On a whim, she took a hostess position at The Granary and quickly fell in love with the restaurant's intense focus on hospitality, locality, and seasonality.  As her role in the restaurant grew, it became clear that her passion for coordinating joyful and amazing experiences would easily translate from the music industry to food and beverage.  Her intense work ethic and desire to learn quickly made her an integral part of the growing team.  Today Lindsay lives in Park Circle with her boyfriend and is the General Manager at The Granary, Marketing Manager for On Forty-One and The Americano, and a partner in FloKing Artisan Products.   In her free time, Lindsay enjoys practicing yoga, seeing live music, spending time at the beach, and tasting all of the exceptional cuisine Charleston has to offer.
