Today we’d like to introduce you to Tristan Lindsey.
Tristan, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started my lemonade business because my mom and my stepdad were always working hard. So, I wanted to help out so I said I wanted to sell lemonade. But of course, my parents help me with my business. So now we use it to help save money for when I’m old enough to go to college.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Overall, it has been smooth. There were some problems before the pandemic about having a license to have a lemonade stand.
There are some nights when we have a lot of orders or are getting ready for a big event and my parents and other family members stay up really late getting everything done. It’s been many nights when they have gone to bed at 3 am only to have to be up by 7 to set up at an event.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m an 8-year-old, about to be in third grade. I sell homemade lemonades with my business, Tristan’s XL Lemonade. What sets me apart is that everything we make is fresh and homemade. We do not use country time! This business was my own idea, not something my parents just added my name to.
Where do you see things going in the next 5-10 years?
I hope that my lemonades will be sold in stores like the Amish Market or Whole Foods. I want my business to be bigger than what it is now.
