Lemonade entrepreneurs earn while they learn
Sunday, September 01, 2019
Brothers Blaise and Jarrett Snavely, 9 and 11, know how to turn a profit. The two are constantly coming up with ways to earn a buck, or, in this case, a couple quarters.
On a sunny Saturday morning, the two set up a lemonade stand on the corner of South Pikes Peak Drive and Mainstreet. With white aprons and friendly smiles, they waited for customers. Lemonade was only part of their menu. The brothers served gumballs from a machine Jarrett bought with his birthday money and snow cones from a machine Blaise found at a garage sale for $2.
Jarrett said he enjoys putting the product together and counting the money at the end of the day to see how close he is to moving into the black.
