It will always be that if not for the complete and uncompromising support of my wife, Tara, who’s idea this was in the first place, there wouldn’t even be a Chili Man and we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Because I am the mouthpiece of everything, her contribution to my success goes largely unnoticed except for when I bring it up,” Vic says.
