Sheboygan’s Young Entrepreneur’s Candy Business Gaining Recognition

11-Year-Old Entrepreneur, Truman McNitt, Sells Sweet Treats and Sparks Joy with Business Venture

Truman McNitt, an 11-year-old with a sweet tooth and entrepreneurial spirit, has made a name for himself statewide by becoming the youngest finalist in a Junior Achievement Young Entrepreneur Competition. His journey began when his mom 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.

Despite his young age, McNitt takes his business seriously, acknowledging the responsibility that comes with being an 11-year-old business owner. His mom, Caitlin Brotz-McNitt, plays a supportive role in his business venture, providing guidance, encouragement, and a retail space in her store, Olivü, in downtown Sheboygan. Alongside cotton candy, McNitt also sells toy slime and freeze-dried candy, the latter of which he finds to have a light and crispy texture thanks to the freeze-drying process.

An expert in all things candy, McNitt enjoys sampling new products and experimenting with different flavors. He finds joy in creating cotton candy and freeze-dried candy, making sure to have fun while running his business. In addition to selling his products at his mom’s store, he also has an online presence where customers can purchase his sweet treats.
