Sour Cheeks

Meet The Founder: Marlén Medina

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we're introducing you to some of Texas' incredible Latina entrepreneurs. Meet Sour Cheeks!

Tell us about your business!

MM: SourCheeks is a business that coats gummy candies in our special blend of Mexican spices and sour mix. We offer our products in a range of sizes, varying from 2oz bags to 10oz bags depending the customers request. We also offer our services at birthdays or any sort of occasion with an assortment of goods based on the customer’s preference. Our target audience is mainly younger people within the range of 4-18 year old, but we also have products for older people like our sauce which is mainly used for alcoholic beverages.

How did you decide to start your biz?

MM: I started this business because of my love and passion for decorating. I love organizing birthday tables so that guests can pick and choose what goods they wanted to take home at the end of a special occasion.

Who inspires you?

MM: My inspiration for my business would be my late husband.

What’s next for your business?

MM: I would like for my business to spread in popularity and to be available in places that are outside of Texas.
