• 11-Year-Old Entrepreneur Lands Mega Distribution Deal With Whole Foods
    By Admin | Saturday Apr 02,2016

    It took Bee Sweet Lemonade seven years to land a megadistribution deal with Whole Foods, but founder Mikaila Ulmer would like to see you juggle entrepreneurship with all that grade-school homework. NBC says this 11-year-old girl's homemade line is headed to 55 of the grocery chain's stores in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Florida — a deal probably worth millions. The product, which Mikaila created at age 4 by adding honey to her great grandmother's 1940 recipe after a bee sting, has been flying off shelves for years around her native Austin, also the home base for Whole Foods, and Bee Sweet's trio of a preteen founder, no artificial sweeteners, and crusade to save the world's bees apparently proved too much for the natural-foods retailer to pass up.
