Success Story: It’s All in the Sauce
2017 Bob Evans Heroes to CEOs winner was Ohio veteran Charlynda Scales, CEO of Mutts Sauce, LLC. Scales is a member of the Ohio Women Veterans Advisory Committee and actively mentors other veterans interested in starting their own businesses. (Photo courtesy of Charlynda Scales).
A veteran who recently benefited from Heroes to CEOs was 2016 winner and former Air Force member Charlynda Scales, who launched Mutt's Sauce in honor of her grandfather, Charlie "Mutt" Ferrell, Jr.. In 1956, her grandfather got the idea to make a sauce he could use for every meal. Thus, Mutt's Sauce, a multi-purpose condiment, which infuses sweetness, tanginess and a little heat into each spoonful, was born.
“I’m truly humbled by the support of Bob Evans Farms and Daymond John for our nation’s veterans! As a veteran, I respect the way they lead by example,” Scales says. “Both Bob Evans and Daymond John provided the magic weapon to keep pushing Mutt’s Sauce forward.”
