Young entrepreneur, Britton, age 11, is in business of baking and selling cookies,
cupcakes, and other items. We asked her a few things about her business.
What’s your age, grade and what school do you attend?
I am 11 years old and I am a 5th grader and Home Schooled.
How did you get into your business?
Momma and I wanted to experiment with cookies and icing since I have always lived to bake. We made our first batch and daddy said they were the best cookies he’s ever had. So we decided to post them and offer them for sale and it took off from there!
How have your parents helped you?
Momma has taught me the recipes, some of the techniques and she’s teaching me how to use my creativity and experience in art! Daddy has been supportive in the process and he’s always up for being a cookie tester.
What’s the biggest lesson you have learned in running your business?
To always do my best and strive to make customers happy because they will always come back!
What are your future plans for the business?
I would love to have my own bakery someday. I would love to learn more recipes that are more complicated and challenging.
After high school, what are your plans?
To continue my business for baking and maybe attend culinary school.
What would you like to do for your career?
I would love to always be a baker and always be my own boss!
How has Kendall County supported you?
I have had many friends and family support me in placing orders for their events. Word of mouth has been great for me and I have had a lot of support from local businesses as well.
