This Saturday, May 20th, is Lemonade Day in Indianapolis, and it will be the third year Roman and Leo will be participating with a lemonade stand of their own. For those
not familiar with Lemonade Day, it was started in 2007 by Michael Holthouse to teach kids how to start, own and run their own business–a lemonade stand. In 2009 Holthouse, an Indiana native, reached out to local entrepreneur Scott Jones to bring Lemonade Day to Indianapolis, and in 2015 we participated in our first Lemonade Day.
The Lemonade Day program provides kids the blueprint to start their own business with a business plan, teaches them how to market and brand their stand, and encourages them to give back to the community. It’s a great program, and I’m excited for my boys to get more involved as they get older.
If you are in the Fishers area, please stop by for some lemonade with Roman and Leo.
They will be posted outside their mom’s store, Roman and Leo, on 116th St. from 10:30-1:00. You won’t find a better deal for a cup of lemonade…a quarter; I anticipate they will look to raise prices in the coming years as they get a better understanding of supply, demand, competition and profits. But for now, it’s just the exercise of running their own stand. As they have in the past, they will also be taking donations for Riley Children’s Hospital.
If you aren’t able to make it to Fishers, you can find a lemonade stand near you here. Please support these young entrepreneurs; small businesses and entrepreneurs are the backbone of our economy, and your support encourages future business owners to follow their dreams!
