Sheboygan’s Young Entrepreneur’s Candy Business Gaining Recognition

Caitlin Brotz-McNitt, a mother of an 11-year-old with an entrepreneurial spirit and sweet tooth, has watched her son Truman McNitt blossom into a successful businessman. It all started when she bought a cotton candy maker for fun, which sparked Truman’s idea to start selling cotton candy. Today, he is the youngest finalist in a Junior Achievement Young Entrepreneur Competition statewide.

Truman takes his business seriously and acknowledges the responsibility that comes with being an 11-year-old business owner. His mom plays a supportive role in his venture, providing guidance, encouragement and a retail space in her store, Olivü, in downtown Sheboygan. Besides cotton candy, Truman also sells toy slime and freeze-dried candy. He finds joy in creating these treats and experimenting with different flavors.

Truman’s online presence allows customers to purchase his sweet treats from anywhere in the world. His entrepreneurial spirit is inspiring to many young people who dream of starting their own businesses one day. Despite his young age, Truman has already achieved great success and has shown that with hard work and dedication, anyone can achieve their dreams.
