Local entrepreneur spreading family mustard recipe around

​Kansas City’s a good place for taking a family recipe, manufacturing the product on a large scale, and creating a successful small cottage industry. The greatest success stories are probably Wishbone salad dressing and KC Masterpiece barbecue sauces (both later purchased by corporate conglomerates), but there are plenty of other culinary products that started the same way: with a favorite recipe.

Lori Arndt of Lenexa, a teacher who works with disabled children by day, has a part-time job making, selling and promoting two prepared mustards. Her first success, GG’s Sweet & Spicy Mustard, began with her grandmother’s recipe.
