When Abby Kircher displayed her startup’s product -- healthy, good-for-you nut butters -- at her first natural-product trade show in Baltimore, people loved the taste. They were less sure of Kircher herself. “I was 15 at the time. I’d start talking about our product and people would kind of look to my mom and dad, because it was assumed they were in charge,” she says. “But I was like, ‘I’m Abby!’ ”
This 17-year-old wanted a healthier alternative to peanut-butter, and now she's a nut butter tycoon.
16 year old Abby Kircher took her efforts to eat healthier and has turned that into a booming business, Abby’s Better Nut Butter. As reported in a recent article on INSIDER, the Charlotte-based business has become a full family affair with the now 17 year old Abby’s parents, brothers, and even grandparents helping to make her dream a reality.
