Kitty Wells, CEO, Chief Spice Geek, and Spice Queen of Spice Pharm
Tell us about your business.
“I was very inspired by reading all of the science behind spices. They have incredible medicinal properties, and so I wanted to make delicious, medicinal products that people could take on a daily basis to get all of the benefits of the antioxidants, and the anti-inflammatory properties, and all of the incredible things that spices do for you.”
What makes your company a leader in your industry?
“Our products are actually quite unique. We have been making them since 2012 and now there are definitely companies trying to make the same kinds of products, but ours have a robustness and there is a lot of science behind them. We won a big global award in the supplement industry for our great taste, innovation, and scientific efficacy. I think that, coupled with our attention to detail when it comes to quality and ingredients, really sets us apart. Not to mention, our products taste delicious—all of them!”
Who or what has influenced you and your team?
“When I was a kid, I used to make concoctions from things I found in my mother’s spice cabinet. I loved playing with spices! But fast forward several years later, my own deteriorating health really influenced and motivated me to start this. I was working long, 12-hour days in a high-stress, Silicon Valley job, and I wanted to do something other than work in the corporate world. So, I turned to my life-long fascination with herbal medicine and created products I love.”
What contributions have you made or are willing to make through your company for the world around you?
“We just want to help people keep healthy and we want to make it delicious and easy. We get amazing testimonials about how these products have helped people—from relieving joint pain to reducing stress.”
What key qualities do you look for in team members?
“Passion for health and helping people. You can train people to do all kinds of things, but I want genuinely upbeat, happy, healthy people who want to help others be that way.”
What words of advice do you have for others looking to grow their business?
“You should understand your market and understand who your customers are and what they want. Everything flows from your customers, so the more you understand and care for your customers, the more your business will grow.”
