Thats when the idea of Truman Bar was born, and, of course, that bar needed to be made in The Truman Factory, a factory that’s by kids for kids. We developed branding, I visited candy manufactures and we found the best chocolate.
Now I just needed to do the prizes!
As a techie, and kind of a geek, I wanted to give my customers something totally new and unique, an epic prize experience using software - combining candy and technology. So we created the “Epic Prize Vault”, a code based rewards program.
As my business started coming together, people took notice and I appeared on news outlets, magazine articles, newspapers. Before I knew it I was doing unique collabs with Canopy Hotel, Wework, and other amazing businesses who supported my vision of The Truman Factory.
Always believing in “Young Helping Young” I continue to give a percentage of all my sales to kids and teens who are less advantaged through two entities: Friends of the Children in Brooklyn and Vogel Alcove in Dallas.
This is my 5th year of entrepreneurship and I am even more excited! I’ve totally rebranded, created new tasty products, upped the golden ticket experience and improved the prizes that can be won.
I hope I can be an inspiration to other young people to start their own companies!
