Sheboygan’s Young Entrepreneur’s Candy Business Gaining Recognition

From Cotton Candy To Business Owner: The Inspiring Story of 11-Year-Old Entrepreneur Truman McNitt.

An 11-year-old entrepreneur named Truman McNitt has made a name for himself statewide by becoming the youngest finalist in a Junior Achievement Young Entrepreneur Competition. His journey began when his mother bought a cotton candy maker for fun, sparking his idea to start selling cotton candy.

McNitt now offers a wide variety of cotton candy flavors and even live-spins it at events. He has named his enterprise Sugar Twist Trinkets, which is based in downtown Sheboygan where his mother, Caitlin Brotz-McNitt, plays a supportive role in his business venture. She provides guidance, encouragement and a retail space in her store Olivü where customers can purchase McNitt’s sweet treats.

Alongside cotton candy, McNitt also sells toy slime and freeze-dried candy, which he finds to have a light and crispy texture thanks to the freeze-drying process. He enjoys sampling new products and experimenting with different flavors and finds joy in creating these treats while running his business.

In addition to selling his products at his mother’s store, he also has an online presence where customers can purchase his sweet treats. Despite his young age, McNitt takes his business seriously, acknowledging the responsibility that comes with being an 11-year-old business owner.
