13 year old setting the World on Fire…With Hot Sauce Mon, 04/30/12 7:24 AM (permalink)
MAIDEN, NC – Most people asked would recommend having some sort of diploma or degree before starting a business. But that didn’t stop 13 year-old Nolan Bebber from starting his own hot sauce business from the comfort of his parent’s kitchen.
“I was sitting in a restaurant and I picked up a bottle of hot sauce and I looked at the ingredients and it was pretty simple,” said Bebber. “I thought I could do better.”
 
Growing up glued to TV cooking shows, Nolan felt comfortable in the kitchen and in October he started selling his hot sauce at a local church event and around town. It quickly skyrocketed.
 
“It’s turned into more than a hobby now, it’s actually work,” said Nolan’s father, Michael Bebber.
 
After the hot sauce became so popular so quickly, they began dealing with the legalities of having a small business.
“We decided to make it more legitimate so now he does have a North Carolina State Incorporation,” said his father. He also has a website, a Facebook page, his own label, and trademark. See below for story and video

      An entrepreneur at age 13.  Funny how every now and then you can spot a kid that's really going to go somewhere.
