Christie Allen

We were very happy to meet Christie Allen at a Women’s Business Center workshop in Lawton, Oklahoma where she grew up watching her father, the late Robert Lee Allen, develop and master a signature sauce through trial and error. Christie desired to build upon her father’s love of cooking by making Sweet Lee’s Barbecue Sauce a household name.

In 2016, she began her journey to make this amazing, secret sauce available to the world. She attended entrepreneurial classes and received resources to start her food business. In 2018, Christie introduced Sweet Lee’s to the market. We celebrate her drive to make her dream come true and build upon her father’s legacy. Christie is a joy to be around and we are happy to be a small part of her entrepreneurial journey.

Want to get your hands on a bottle of Sweet Lee’s? The sauces are available in a few local store and shops in the Lawton area, and online at They are a Made In Oklahoma company but will ship to you! Make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
