Shark Tank has another millionaire in the making.

Mikaila Ulmer is Shark Tank’s rising star!

This sixth-grader from Austin Texas turned a lemonade stand into a thriving business and thanks to Shark Tank, her signature lemonade will be sold in mulptiple states througout the United States in Whole Food Stores.

Makaila’s secret recipe for BeeSweet Lemonade comes from her great-grandmother, and contains flax seed and honey as the sweetener. Things really got going last year when she was just 9 and took the locally popular lemonade to ABC’s Shark Tank and earned a $60,000 investment. The Whole Foods deal gets her lemonade on the shelves at 55 Whole Foods in states including Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Florida.

Her success even earned her a spot at the White House Kids’ State Dinner last summer, and she announced earlier this month, while being honored with other black innovators at the South by Southwest Festival, that she’s expanded distribution even further thanks to a deal with United Natural Foods.

She says she works on her business after she finishes her homework and on weekends and holidays.
Congratulations Mikaila, keep up the good work chile.
