[#WOW] Meet Nicola from Sticky Mix!

Nicola & Wendy run Sticky Mix, a fab cake and cookie mix business - you just add the wet ingredients! They launched a children's party bag mix too - something different to give children at the end of parties! Here I pass over to Nicola to tell us more about Sticky Mix!
Can you tell us a little about yourself as a person? 
I'm married with 3 children. Huge Robbie Williams fan, love baking, hate rudeness and find it impossible to say no!

How did you first set up the business? 
Myself and my friend Wendy set up the business after working on a charity project and finding we worked really well together, both really wanted to get back into the workplace following having our families but wanted something flexible so we could still be around for them.

How old is the business? 
1 year old this month!

Did you ever think you’d be running your own business? 
Absolutely, I've had my own business before and between us we had loads of ideas, just had to find the one we really believed in, and we did.

Where are you based? Do you have a shop or are you just online? 
We are based in Derbyshire. We sell retail online through our website but we also wholesale to various deli's, farm shops, health food stores etc. We are always on the lookout for new retailers and love growing the wholesale side of the business as well as exhibiting at food fairs and events when we get to give out samples and see the look on peoples faces when they try our bakes.

What is the most popular product sales wise?
Our Belgian Chocolate White Chocolate Studded Brownies. We offer regular and gluten free versions.

Everyone has a favourite product - what is yours?
I think it would have to be the Spotty Dotty Party Bag. It just looks fun, bright and cheerful and full of promise!

What is the one thing people must know about your business? 
That we have developed our ranges to try and offer something for everyone to enjoy - Gluten Free, Dairy, Soya and Egg Free and we have many more in the pipeline as we grow.

What is your proudest business achievement? 
When we launched at an exhibition last year. We jumped in and booked a stand and then went hell for leather to be ready for it. We just had to go for it, otherwise we would have still been procrastinating now!

What do you do when you aren’t working on the business? 
Feed the children!

What five words describe your business? 
Enthusiastic, Hard Working, Fun, Quality and PINK!
