Three summers ago, Jack Bonneau started a lemonade stand to earn money to buy himself a toy. Instead of setting it up on a street corner in his neighborhood, he came up with a more ambitious plan. He would market organic lemonade at the local farmers’ market throughout the summer.
As Jack’s lemonade stands grew in popularity, Jack had the idea of helping other kids learn how to start and operate their own lemonade stand, and Jacks Stands & Marketplace was born.
This summer, Jack has teamed up with Santa Cruz Organic to inspire budding entrepreneurs to recreate their own version of his ever-popular lemonade stand. Jeff Maher talks with the young founder and CEO about his plans.
