Gulf Breeze siblings compete in national entrepreneurship contest
A Gulf Breeze brother and sister are competing tomorrow in a national entrepreneurship contest.
Liam and Eve Knight won the local and state showdowns -- which guide students through starting and running a real business.
A product review.
Meet the "Spice Kidz".
(("I'm the CEO and my brother is the CFO"))
Indian curry dishes are their favorite --
(("Healthy and tastes good at the same time."))
But when they moved here from Ireland a few years ago -- they could not find a ready mix sauce to satisfy their exotic and exacting tastes.
(("the grocery store has been in the bottle for three months and ours has been in the packet for two weeks."))
Last fall they sought out national wholesalers and began developing their own curry combination. They call it "Indian for Amateurs".
They grind the spices themselves in the Bodacious Olives' certified kitchen.
They package, seal and label each packet -- which sell for 2-99 each.
They've sold 350 units in two months.
(("Right now we don't have a salary, we're just donating our time to this cause we want to see this get up and running."))
The siblings will present their business plan along with six other teams to the US Chamber of Commerce.
(("We would win thirty thousand dollars in scholarships each from the Saunders Foundation."))
(("Very likely they said that we'd get to go to shark tank."))
(("We've looked at our competition and I'm really excited and I think we have a really good chance and we've got a good as chance as anybody does."))
The Knights compete in Washington DC tomorrow and find out Thursday if they win the national competition.
