Her original formula is mild, but she added a medium and hot version for those who like it spicy.

“It just has a real unique flavor. Anybody who tastes it just immediately likes it,” Witt said.

Six stores began carrying the first run of her product and she plans to make a second batch to fill additional orders later this month.

After the holidays, Witt, who owns a dry cleaner with her husband, wants to expand her business beyond Oklahoma and use the income to supplement their retirement.

Witt says anyone with a dream of starting their own food-based business would benefit from the OSU entrepreneurial workshop, which is held about every two months on the Stillwater campus.
