Inspiring the entrepreneur in kids across Acadiana
LAFAYETE (KADN) — Lemonade Day Louisiana is tomorrow here in Lafayette. It is a free, statewide program dedicated to teaching children how to start, own, and operate their own business through the simple and time-honored act of building and running a lemonade stand.
"We're teaching them how to be young entrepreneurs where they learn how to go out and buy their goods, sell their lemonade, hopefully make a profit, be able to pay for their supplies, save some money, and perhaps give some to the community," says Richard Zuschlag, CEO of Acadian Companies, City Champion of Lafayette Lemonade Day 2014.
Young entrepreneurs are provided with free, detailed support materials to help them establish their lemonade stand tomorrow. The day was founded by entrepreneurs Todd Graves and John Georges in 2010, and has reached more than 50,000 kids.
