Entrepreneurship classes at Grand River Technical School will be holding the 4th annual lemonade stand competition this Friday night at Jerry Litton Memorial Stadium.
The two sections of Entrepreneurship have each selected their project manager and team name. Each team then determined which lemon products to sell and what marketing strategies they would use. Profits from the stand operations will be used for the start-up capital for their upcoming business ventures.
Team "The Incredible Pulp" is led by Project Manager Alan Kline. The team consists of Jared Cox, Amanda Day, John Day, Lane Gaunt, Shannon Hamilton, Dylan Head, Rian Lewis, Clay Morris, Brittany Myers, Kaylee Myers, Taylor O'Dell, Hannah Thomas and Taylor Tripp. The Incredible Pulp stand will be selling regular and pink lemonade, lemon cotton candy, pink lemonade Air Heads, lemon-lime Gatorade and lemon/strawberry/banana smoothies. The first 100 customers at this stand receive a coupon for a free Doritos Taco with purchase of a medium drink.
Team "Wet Your Whistle" is being led by project manager Caleb Hearon. Team members are Corey Adams, Stephanie Alterauge, Kelsey Boley, Dallas Boyd, Megan Burns, Morgan Cairns, Candace Callahan, Bailey Caselman, Shanda Cosgrove, Audrie Manning, Brooke Mason, Kaitlyn Owen, Grant Peterson, Colton Seaman, Brittany Stanfield, John Stanfield, Michael Vaught, and Chandra Williams. The Wet Your Whistle stand is selling flavored lemonade – Shootin' Strawberry, Cowboy Coconut, Kickin' Cherry, and Rodeo Raspberry. They are also selling Cowboy Cookies (lemon cookies from Francine's). Every purchase receives an entry into one of two raffles – a football signed by Chillicothe's own Bob Fairchild or a red and black stadium blanket.
Local entrepreneurs and businesses sponsor the stands, donating supplies, financial aid, and promotional items. Sponsors include Woody's Automotive Group, Wrightway Dent Repair, Taco Bell, Fast Lanes Bowling Alley, Triple J Embroidery and Screen Printing, Golden Corral Family Steak House, Boley & Boley Insulation, Hy-Vee, Quickzotic Farms, Barnes Baker Motors, Chillicothe License Office, Morton Buildings, Francine's Pastry Parlor, and Pepsi Cola Bottling.
The Chillicothe Hornets will be facing the Savannah Savages at 7 p.m. Come support the Hornets and Chillicothe's newest entrepreneurs.
