Seeking Entrepreneurial Kid for Business Opportunity:
Toffee On The Run began as a goal in the heart of an eight-year-old girl to raise money for a plane ticket and a mission trip to Senegal, Africa. Only five weeks later, she had surpassed her goals, and wasn’t stopping there. An official toffee-making business was born.
TOTR makes, markets, and ships multiple flavors of toffee nationwide, and continues to grow in popularity. “Everyone loves toffee. Even people who say they don’t like it end up loving it after they try it. It’s so much fun to put a smile on peoples’ face.”
Now, four years later, this business owner is ready to pass the spoon onto another young entrepreneur. “I feel like I’ve learned so much by having a business. I want to share this knowledge and sense of accomplishment with another kid.” says 12-year-old Julie.
Do you know a young someone who has the drive to own their own business?
Toffee On The Run is well-established and excited for a new chapter of its life with the next owner. You can find all of the details on the website: toffeeontherun.com.
