Michael Loubier, owner of Loubier Gourmet, began his culinary journey 18 years ago as a server and bartender at a Washington, D.C. restaurant. He moved west and fulfilled his dream of opening his own small bar-b-que restaurant in Oakland, but realized he wanted something more.
Michael was passionate about the rubs, spices, and bar-b-que sauces he tried, tested, and perfected while operating his restaurant, and decided to share them with the world.
Loubier Gourmet now offers an exceptional line of sauces and seasonings, including mild or hot Chipotle Seasoning, mild or hot All Purpose Rub, Italian Topper, and mild or hot BBQ Sauce. Loubier Gourmet also sells 4 pack samplers, mild or hot versions, and a BBQ Gift Box containing one of each product attractively packaged in a custom hand-crafted pine slatted box – wonderful additions to your kitchen, and wonderful gifts for any occasion.
Michael and his wife, Karla, are entrenched in the community, and 10% of all sales are donated to Aldea Children Family Services, a safe haven for foster kids, where the goal is to create brighter futures for every child by helping them find forever families. Michael believes that “every village needs a good BBQ sauce,” and that “it takes a village to raise a child.”
