Most lemonade stands don’t make it past a Saturday afternoon on the sidewalk, but Texas sixth grader, Mikaila Ulmer, is taking her lemonade stand into Whole Foods. Mikaila’s business, BeeSweet Lemonade, got a coveted spot on NBC’s investment show Shark Tank, and then landed a multi-million dollar four-state deal with the popular grocery store. Go Mikaila!

Mikaila’s lemonade uses her grandmothers 1940s recipe which features flax seed and honey. Her delicious lemonade will be in 55 Whole Foods stores across Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma.
