Hiram College

Every Wednesday during the 12-week, the Center for Integrated Entrepreneurship hosts Fireside Chats with local entrepreneurs.

At 7 p.m. at East Hall Forum, entrepreneurs will discuss their journeys – how they started their business, what they did right, what they did wrong and where they are going next.

Feb. 12: “Mustard: It’s not Just a Condiment!” with Jim ’88 and Karen ’89 Scher, owners, Uncle Jim’s Pepper Mustard

After years of food appreciation, especially mustards, Jim Scher created his own mustard recipe and began manufacturing it alongside his wife, Karen, in their Warren, Ohio kitchen. He shared his pepper mustard with his friends, and after a few years of encouraging responses from family and friends, Jim decided to make his product available commercially. These Hiram College alumni will share how they launched their product to rave reviews and intense demand and are now expanding their product line.
