Ethan Holmes – Founder/Chief Executive Officer
Ethan Holmes is an 22 year old senior at Hiram College, business management major with a minor in entrepreneurship and Founder/CEO of “Holmes Mouthwatering Applesauce” A
Holmes started this company at the age of 15 years old after reading “Reallionaire” The inspiring story of Farrah Gray, an African American boy who made a million dollars at 14 years old through his own food product. The remarkable story inspired Ethan at that age to start his own legitimate company. Holmes chose applesauce because his grandfather being the cook of the household taught him his applesauce recipe. He then spent hours over the next few months, refining the recipe and carefully crafting what would one day become “Holmes Mouthwatering Applesauce”
“I looked at the market as a 15 year old kid and saw that the majority of the applesauce products in the USA for kids had a bland sugary taste to most of their products. My mission was to create a product that was made up of every quality the big applesauce companies lack, while still maintaining healthy, local and all natural ingredients.”
