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.

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 – Mustard: It’s not just a Condiment! with Jim ’88 and Karen ’89 Scher, Owners

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 kitchen. He shared his pepper mustard with his friends, and after a few years of encouraging responses from family and friends, he decided to make his product available commercially. The couple will discuss how they launched their product in 2009 to rave reviews and intense demand, and are now expanding their product line.
