La Crescent, MN – (WXOW) – Two young businessmen have been working very hard this summer, turning lemons into lemonade, for a small profit.
Austin and Taylor have spent a good piece of their summer vacation parked on the corner of Elm and 4th St, just behind the elementary school. Their setup is simple. They have their lemonade on a small table and one comfortable lawn chair. They also have a cardboard sign with the neatly written word “lemonade” and a price noted of fifty cents. Location has been a big factor in their success according to one of the young entrepreneurs.
“One day we started here and we made $30. So we stayed right here and started getting more and more, so we picked this spot,” said Taylor, who will begin 4th grade this year.
It’s not always easy work. Taylor patiently holds the sign out for several hours, patiently working to catch the eye of passing cars and pedestrians.
Sometimes people stop, sometimes they don’t, but it doesn’t seem to phase the boys.
“We just wanted to earn some money and then we could go to Chuck E Cheese,” said Austin, soon to be a 6th sgrader. “After that, we just keep saving it up.”
The business has been good, but it comes to a conclusion after Labor Day. School begins for Austin and Taylor and so goes the lemonade franchise. No official plans on future business ventures at this time. Taylor did note he is currently hoping to pursue a career as a football player.
