What do we say about enterprising black kids? We absolutely love them! 11-year old Joshua, 9-year old Isaiah, 7-year old Caleb, and 5-year old Micah. Are the young founders of Yummy Brothers, a gourmet catering company that makes cookies and more.
For two years, they’ve been mixing, pouring, scooping and selling their great-grandmother’s cookie recipe. The delicious idea, started with them taking their cookies everywhere.
“Everybody would say that our cookies are really good. So, we were just thinking we could make a living off of this selling cookies,” Joshua explained. “We went to our dad, we told him that we wanted to start our own business selling cookies and we came together as a family and brainstormed on what the name would be and what the logo would be.”
The name was simple – they’re brothers, and people bragged about how yummy the cookies were. And here’s lots of flavors to choose from.
Yummy Brothers ship nationwide, but the four still go around their communities to events, selling the baked goods. And while, selling cookies is serious business for the young “brother-preneurs,” education is still first and foremost.
“When we bake them and sell them is usually on the weekends,” they explained.
Their super-supportive parents make sure their homework is all wrapped up before they start packing away their cookies.
“We don’t do it every day because we’re kids, and our parents don’t need to treat us like robots,” said Isaiah, sitting next to his brothers in matching Yummy Brothers attire.
At such a young age, the four brothers each have contributions to the business. For instance, Caleb loves scooping the cookies while Micah, who is the youngest, is in charge of the quality control or the taste test. They are really serious entrepreneurs but they never neglect their education and their supportive parents make sure of that.
“When we bake them and sell them is usually on the weekends,” they explained. “We don’t do it every day because we’re kids, and our parents don’t need to treat us like robots,” Isaiah added.
Yummy Brothers Business
Yummy Brothers offer more than 36 different types of cookies, including lemon white chocolate, snicker-doodle, and classic chocolate chip cookies. They have since added beverages and dog treats as well to their range of products.
Their products are sold online and shipped nationwide. The four brothers also sometimes go to events to sell their baked goods. They have since sold more than four thousand cookies, making a decent amount doing so. Most of their profits have been allotted to starting another business they own called Kidpreneurexpo which helps other kids to start businesses.
Kudos to these four little lads who are on their way to becoming millionaires in future.
