How to create a sweet business

Student presenting the elements of a hot cocoa business

Middle School students in teacher Katie French’s class have recently been learning what goes into planning and launching a small business. Their project based learning (PBL) challenge required them to explore all the aspects of starting their own hot cocoa café: from understanding the staffing, equipment and supply costs to determining profitable pricing, business naming and branding, and advertising. Students designed their hot cocoa stands and presented their business plans to classmates, followed by a celebratory Grand Opening hot cocoa party, complete with real chocolatey goodness. Can’t wait to see where these proud young entrepreneurs go next!
