No Label at The Table is a gluten- and dairy-free food company staffed by people on the autism spectrum.

Wittman, with his parents help, started the baked goods company in spring 2017.

Based in Carmel, Indiana, the company has made its way to farmers markets and a wedding tasting.

The company’s $2 snickerdoodles and brownies packages usually sell out within hours.

The company continues to grow and employ more adults on the spectrum with every event.
