For many kids get their first sip of entrepreneurship comes from running a small lemonade stand in their front yard. I remember doing the same in my childhood as well. We moved a plastic lunch table into the front yard and Scotch taped a sign proclaiming 5 cents for a small paper glass of lemonade. We were officially in business.

With a little bit of planning, the lemonade stand can be a great way to teach your children about what it takes to operate a small business. After all there are supply costs like packets of lemonade or fresh squeezed lemons if you want to go high-end, cups, napkins, and of course a big jug to hold the drink. There’s labor, usually free. And of course sales and marketing skills. If you take the time to sit down with kids to help them understand basic costs of operation and some basic marketing, a lemonade stand can be an extremely educational and hands on experience. You might even get your kid or teenager genuinely interested in business!

Wherever your stand is, you’ll need a name that can pull in the crowds or selling lemonade will not be as profitable as you’d like. Downloading our lemonade business plan template can help ensure your approach is financially sound.

How much should you charge for cup of lemonade?

Look online for lemonade stand design inspiration.

Lemonade has long been sold on sidewalks across the United States, and has been priced varyingly from as little as five cents to as much as five bucks. How much you charge for your own lemonade should be based on your overhead and the area in which you are selling. Keep in mind that if you’re selling for a really low price, you might get some extra tips from generous adults.

Prices should also depend on whether you are using a powdered mix or fresh lemons and the size of the cups you are selling. For an average cup size, you can charge around $1 – $1.50 per cup, although some stands do charge up to $5 for a large cup. However, few tend to go above that price, as it prices them out of the market with passers-by, who are the main trade of lemonade stands.

Make sure you take the time to understand your beverage costs. The ability to take raw ingredients and be able to sell a product for more than you paid is one of the most important skills to learn for a future business owner.

How to maximize sales with a lemonade stand?

Having fun and learning a lot.

Maximizing your sales can be done in a number of ways. The first is cost. Limiting your profit margins to an acceptable figure to make your prices more affordable can help to increase sales, especially if you are undercutting the competition.

Encourage your kids to keep track of all the sales on a piece of paper. Then you can add up the total sales and subtract the expenses together at the end of the day. You get parental bonus points for explaining to kids that in the future they will be required to pay taxes on their income and how that impacts business operations.

You could also ideate other ways of making money at the end of the day. Could offering an organic lemonade bolster profitability by increasing the value of each cup? What about new flavors options? Could you sell ready made snacks? Baked goods? Could you knock on doors in the neighborhood to increase demand? The opportunities are endless if you’re creative.

Location, location, location! As with any sales, it is all about where you are located. For a lemonade stand, the best location would be a place with plenty of foot or car traffic. If you’re home is located on a main roadway or sidewalk that’s ideal. The main thing is you want to find a vending location that will have enough action to maintain the interest of your child. If you live on a country road where only two people drive past per day, it could be challenging to maintain the excitement for a kid.

Additional extras for sale can help increase and maximize sales, so consider adding snacks as well, having a variety of lemonade styles and varieties, or even offering 2-4-1 deals or other offers. Snacks such as small sandwiches, rolls, and cookies make a great complement to lemonade, and can help to bring more customers that are looking for a snack with their drinks.

At the end of the day, remember to have some fun with this childhood activity. If you keep things fun, while building in some life lessons and you’ll be creating lifelong memories that will serve your children for decades to come.
