According to Black Enterprise, Micah’s Mixx is a lemonade truck made from an old school bus. The idea came about for the fifth-grader in March 2020 when his lemonade stand on the sidewalk became a hot commodity.
After his drinks became a hit, the Philadelphia-native, with the help of his mother, Danielle, managed to find an old school bus available for purchase at a private school.
With the cost of the bus sitting at $4,000, Micah and his mother started a fundraising campaign to help him not only expand his venture but get the necessary supplies needed to keep his business running.
Despite, starting his business at eight-years-old, Micah’s Mixx really took off last year thanks to donations and support from his community. Today, he offers over a dozen various flavors of teas and lemonades.
“Thanks to your donations and the purchase of over 1500 bottles of lemonade I have my minibus! Now I start the hard work of raising enough funds to actually make it a food truck,” Micah wrote in an Instagram caption. “My mother was hesitant to do this but we really underestimated the cost it takes to turn a bus into a food truck. If you’d like to donate here’s the link and it’s also in my bio. Maybe tag @theellenshow @tylerperry or @meekmill in the comments 🤣🤣 Thanks for getting me this far I couldn’t have done this without my followers!”
