The Loco Lemon is a gourmet lemonade stand founded by Anabelle Lockwood, a 13 year old entrepreneur. Since its inception in 2016, The Loco Lemon has gained quite the following throughout Orange County, even gaining media attention on several news channels.
Our mission is simple. Provide a high quality delicious product, make as many people happy as possible and keep giving back to the community that has given us so much. :)
After extensive research, we have learned that there just isn't anyone doing what we do at the level we're doing it and our quality and flavors are unmatched! We've taken the traditional kids lemonade stand to new heights and are so ready to expand beyond our mobile service. At only 13 years old, Anabelle has become quite the business owner!
Our local community is begging for us to have a brick-n-mortar location that they can stop into, pick up bottle orders, and visit with us to see all the cool kids projects we're up to. There are no other stationary "lemonade cafes" of this kind in Southern California, we want to be the first and be the best!
We are seeking funding to help pay for the kitchen build-out that we require to meet health department requirements, to furnish and remodel the "dining area", and to order new equipment and custom labeled disposables.
A portion of the funding will go towards the start of a fund we are calling "The Lemonade Fund" that will help other kids launch their own small business.
Our team consists of Anabelle Lockwood, our teen founder and Head Lemon and Chanel Rene, Anabelle's mom and Director of Marketing.
Our concept is super cool and we're so excited about the possibility of bringing it to life in our hometown! We've already identified 2 potential locations that are small enough and affordable. The city is excited to have us and are working with us on all the regulations and such. We're hoping to get funded in the next 60 days so we don't lose out on these retail spaces!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read our campaign. Please let us know if you have any specific questions. :)
