We met this wonderful company last year at the Help A Minnesota Maker (HAMMS) event as they won the MN Maker Award. Since then, they went on to win the Small Business Revolution winning $25K from Deluxe Corporation and are now going to have 6 of their spice blends in the Minnesota Target Stores. We just love Minnesota Nice Spice and are so excited to share their story and samples of their spice with our customers this month as our first spotlight small business.
Debb Masterson, a self-proclaimed spice gypsy, naturalist, world traveler, is the founder of Minnesota Nice Spice. Lucy Johnson, her very special and amazingly talented sister who serves as her spice muse, and together they handcraft their extra nice seasoning blends right here in Minnesota.
At Minnesota Nice Spice, they carefully select certified organic herbs and spices and handcraft 17 blends using their own recipes for unique seasoning blends that emphasize natural health properties, like antioxidants, to add a little spice and lots of flavor to your healthy lifestyle.
The “nice” about their spices doesn’t end with great flavor and great ingredients. In the true spirit of community, they donate profits from each sale to benefit the Interact Center, a one-of-a-kind organization that supports over 125 theater and visual artists with disabilities, including Lucy. Her artwork graces their labels and her creative spirit inspires people every day.
Whether you are purchasing spices for yourself, as a gift or as corporate gifts, they provide you with healthy,
charitable, unique and custom made items that are handcrafted.
MN Nice Spice LOVES TO HELP YOU LEAVE A LASTING IMPRESSION.
Nice up your spice or Spice up your nice! Either way…that’s what they will help you do!
