Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Over 1,000 kids will remember Saturday as the day they set up their first business, a lemonade stand.
Youngsters from ages 3 to 17 set up lemonade stands as part of a big push by Raising Cane's to teach them to operate their own business.
Cane's C.E.O. Todd Graves even had his own children earning their own money today, while keeping some, and donating the rest to BREC.
Graves says it's just a wonderful way to teach kids how to run their own business.
"It's a great sense of accomplishment. I grew up doing a lemonade stand as my first business venture, and so it gave me a great sense of accomplisment. I think entreprenuership is very important." said Graves.
