The Great Business of Summer

Brandon Jones and friends are back again - It’s summertime, and school is out! To help beat the heat and make a little spending money, Brandon, along with best friends Gabe and JB, decide to open a lemonade stand. The boys refuse to let JB's sister Mya join them in their business - a decision which they soon begin to regret. Mya quickly rounds up a couple of her friends and they open their own stand right next to the boys’ stand! The boys immediately realize they have real competition when many of their customers start going to the girls’ stand instead - in fact, the girls have taken all of the boys' customers!

The burning question of the summer soon becomes: Will Brandon and his friends be able to stay in business? Or will the girls force them to close?

Join Brandon and his friends as they learn about Math concepts (liquid conversions) and Financial literacy (revenue, profit, break-even) while engaged in a friendly business competition with one another.
