CJ’s Gourmet Mystic Mustard, LLC


Retail/ Manufacturing


$15,000 small business loan

Carolyn Kovas was looking to add a personal and unique touch to the gift baskets she was providing to her co-workers for the holidays. Adding a jar of her homemade “not for dipping” mustard seemed like the perfect touch and turned out to be a brilliant idea as one can find CJ’s Gourmet Mystic Mustard throughout the Lehigh Valley at various stores and crafts, foods, and wine festivals.

With a $15,000 loan, the business was able to purchase supplies and enter into various craft shows.
