Alex is 19 years old and an entrepreneur at heart! At 12, he started selling wood on his grandparents' campsite to finance his trip to Mexico, and with the surplus he made, he decided to buy kayaks to rent to campers.urs.
At 17, he launched his business: Alxtreme spicy beans, which I am adding to my online store today.e.
The recipe was developed by his grandparents in the late 90s after a trip to Louisiana where they tasted these spicy beans in their Bloody Caesar. They tested until they got the taste and texture they were looking for and offered it to customers in their own bar.ar.
They called it the devil's claws. But customers didn't just put it in their Bloody Caesar, they ate it as it was, put it in their beer, in short it was a success! Alex's grandparents once closed their bar and kept their recipe secret.te.
In 2013, Alex also made a trip to Louisiana and in turn fell under the spell of spicy beans. Upon his return, he asked his grandparents for the recipe to market them. They refuse. But a few years later ... he was 17 years old !!!
Several years later...... He was 17 years old, Baswell!
In short, a few years later, he made his request again, and his grandparents agreed to share his recipe with him.
And boom! Alex creates his brand, finds local producers and begins his efforts with restaurateurs in his region to sell his product. He put 1100 pounds of bean jars in the 1st year and 2200 pounds in the 2nd year.
In addition to his business, Alex studies business management at Cégep, he continues to sell wood and rent kayaks on his grandparents' campsite, and he works in his father's transportation company.
Alex is a worker, an entrepreneur at heart..
At the end of the meeting, I told him that he would have hit the eye of the dragon. And him to say to me: Are you sick I would be too afraid to make me pick me up: you are the story that makes people cry and makes everyone dream ... and I'm not dragons anymore so no danger of making you to pick upamasser » 😂
And his product is completely addictive! I sincerely believe that it will be a huge success when the product is known to a wider audience. It is perfect as an aperitif or as an accompaniment. And it's a lot healthier than chips!ips!
What I love more and more with my shop is to discover young inspiring entrepreneurs like Alex and to make you discover them.r.
A photo is worth a thousand words, look at this young man next to me, he exudes happiness!
