Plot Your Stand on the Map

Location, Location, Location! 

If you’ve worked through the Site Selection lesson in your Entrepreneur Workbook, you know how important “location” can be to the success of your business.  Have you determined where you will setup your lemonade stand business?  Below is the Brand Your Stand link for you to plot your stand on the map for the community to support your lemonade stand.  Under our resource tab, there is a listing of businesses who would like to host a stand. It is your responsibility to contact the business, share about your Lemonade Day business and ask their permission to use their location.

Our young entrepreneurs can visit five stations which include graphic design, business planning, marketing, lemonade prepping and PSA/Commercial.

Participants will be in groups and rotate throughout each station. Children who attend will be entered to win a custom-built lemonade stand from the KISD Career Center students in the wood shop class to able to use on Lemonade Day! Listed below is an outline of what each station will offer.

Graphic Design - Advertising can be hard! Customize a flyer to promote your business. You can print 25 flyers to take home with you.

Business Planning - Need to finalize your business plan? Get help determining a location, your goals, your budget and other action items.

Marketing - Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. Let's work through a marketing plan to help promote your business for Lemonade Day Weekend!

Lemonade Prepping - When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade! The lemonade prepping station is perfect for learning how to finalize your recipe.

PSA/Commerical - The community wants to hear from you about Lemonade Day! A script will be provided and participants have the opportunity to have their voiced heard in the PSA promoting Lemonade Day Weekend. Also, KISD Career students will be conducting individual mini-interviews to create a short promotional commercial.
