15-year-old girl hits big with chicken sauce that fetches over GHC 40k a month

A 15-year-old young woman who is home-schooled has gotten into the headlines after becoming a budding entrepreneur with her new spicy sauce.

Tyla-Simone Crayton, 15, is a home-schooled young woman in the United States but unlike other teenagers, Crayton is the CEO of Sienna Wings, a spicy sauce business she started.

In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh, the young woman claimed she has had the recipe, created by herself, since she was 8.

Crayton told SWSN: "My sauce has the potential to be even greater than ketchup. Not only does it taste great, but it's healthy because it is gluten-free and high-fructose corn syrup free."

Crayton sells three sauces with unique tastes that come in lemon pepper, spicy and tangy flavors.

The teenager now has 22 distributors across the United States and her sauce has hit supermarkets. She hopes to one day have her sauce sold in packets at fast-food chains.

Crayton said: "I got the idea originally because my favourite wing place closed down in New York City. I loved the hot sauce they offered there so I went home and tried to recreate the flavor."

Her mum, Monique Crayton, was initially sceptical 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 in 2019, the young woman's mother left her job to help her daughter run the company full-time. They are now reportedly raking in up to $8,000 or about GHC40,000 every month

The young entrepreneur ended conclusively: "It's exciting and scary at times and it is stressful to balance my business and going to school. I love doing it and I wouldn't trade it for the world. People should know that it is never too early to start."
