Mikaila Ulmer is clearly a businesswoman far beyond her years. At the age of 10, she appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank and sold 25 percent of her lemonade business to Daymond John, the founder and CEO of FUBU, for $60,000. Now, she’s signed off on an expansion deal that will see the business that combined her family’s lemonade recipe and her mission to save bees reach new heights.
According to the Root, Ulmer brokered a deal with Whole Foods to sell her lemonade on a regional level in Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana locations. If all goes well, the next step would be to sell the product on a national scale.
