Reggie Kelly of Kyvan Foods on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast

Reggie Kelly from KYVAN Foods comes on the Craft Hot Sauce Podcast. Reggie was a standout football player coming out of Aberdeen Mississippi, going on to play football at Mississippi State and then having a 13 year career in the NFL as a Tight End for the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals.

On the podcast Reggie shared some awesome stories about how cooking is such a big part of his life, mantras that he’s held tight that have helped him be a top performer on the gridiron and in business, and we talk about some early business mistakes he encountered, hoping that these lessons can help other future hot sauce and condiment companies save some time and money.
