Sweet Heat Jam Co. is based in Katy, Texas and was created by Nolan who has down syndrome. Once he graduated high school his mom Christine wanted him to find his purpose. Sweet Heat Jam Co. employs individuals with special needs and acts as a training program.
Working and creating gives them a purpose. They pour passion into their cooking. Nolan even has some fun ways to use the jams. He suggests using them as a marinade on meat and fish.
A church and its pastor, who they met at Special Olympics welcomed the company with open arms to use their facility. Whether they will expand further hasn’t been decided, but the joy and positive energy that Sweet Heat Jam Co. brings is undeniable.
