Urban Accents



Tired of boring parties with bland food, two Chicagoans paired together to form their own specialty food company in 1996.  In a small kitchen on the North Side of the city, Tom Knibbs and Jim Dygas experimented with flavor pairing, blending spices from every region of the world together to create one-of-a-kind dining experiences to share with their friends. 

A lot has changed for Urban Accents since the early days in that small kitchen. A company that began with five original spice blends now produces over 75 gourmet products that line the shelves of the nation's top retailers. While spice blends are still the trademark product of Urban Accents, the company now offers a complete line of fruit grillers, veggie roasters, flapjacks, spice blends, brine and bakes, dryglazes, popcorn and popcorn seasoning and a wide assortment of holiday items for seasonal cheer.  Winners of multiple NASFT awards and featured in Better Homes and Gardens for a variety of products, Urban Accents has earned a reputation as one of the leaders in the specialty food world.They stress the importance of all-natural, gluten free ingredients in their bold kitchen blends. 

With a product line that continues to grow, expect to find only the freshest tastes behind the company label.
