Our History

In 2015, Mike and Karen Wendt started Spark Spices with simply four products. Mike had retired from Tyson Foods in Jefferson a year earlier and needed to find something to do with his time. Cooking had always been a passion, so this was a natural fit.

It takes the full team to run this family-owned business. Mike focuses on product development and production. Karen helps manage the business, works in the office, and labels the product. Together, Mike and Karen share their passion for these spices with the world. 

In The News

It is not uncommon to see Mike & Karen Wendt of Spark Spices out and about. They enjoy meeting new people and sparking up peoples’ appetites with Spark Spices’ unique spice blends. With so many successful recipes, every event they attend has an extra spark of Wisconsin flavor with these two spice makers.
