A 15-year-old entrepreneur is keeping business hot with her new spicy sauce.
Tyla-Simone Crayton, 15, is CEO of Sienna Wings. She sells a top-secret hot sauce recipe, which she created from scratch at the age of 8.
“My sauce has the potential to be even greater than ketchup,” Tyla-Simone told SWNS. “Not only does it taste great, but it’s healthy because it is gluten-free and high-fructose corn syrup free.”
Tyla-Simone sells three sauces with unique tastes that come in lemon pepper, spicy and “tangy” flavors.
The teen, who grew up in New York and now lives in Texas, has 22 distributors and now her sauce is hitting supermarkets. She hopes to one day have her sauce sold in packets at fast-food chains.
“I got the idea originally because my favorite wing place closed down in New York City,” she said. “I loved the hot sauce they offered there so I went home and tried to recreate the flavor.”
Her mom, Monique Crayton, was initially skeptical about the idea but once she served the sauce to friends at a party and it was a hit, she knew her daughter was on to something.
Earlier this year, Monique left her job to help her daughter run the company full-time. They are now reportedly raking in up to $8,000 month and Tyla-Simone is home-schooled so she can be hands-on with the business.
“It’s exciting and scary at times and it is stressful to balance my business and going to school,” Tyla-Simone said. “I love doing it and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. People should know that it is never too early to start.”
