ME & THE BEES LEMONADE’S MIKAILA ULMER RETURNS TO SHARK TANK DOWNLOAD PDF

Teen CEO success story featured on update segment showing growth of business from one little lemonade
stand to more than two million bottles sold and counting

Mikaila Ulmer returns to the Tank on Friday, November 20 at 7 PM CT/8 PM ET on ABC as part of a segment update feature showing how her company has grown. She originally appeared in season six of Shark Tank when she was just 10 years old.     

Mikaila and her dad, Theo Ulmer, first appeared on the show seven years ago where Mikaila explained that her lemonade, which was inspired by her Great Granny Helen’s flaxseed lemonade recipe, was not only “good but good for you.” They struck a deal with Daymond John who has continued to be a mentor and resource for the company which was originally called Bee Sweet Lemonade, but had to change the name due to a brand conflict.     

"From running a multi-million dollar business to making time for her schoolwork, Mikaila awakens the go-getter in us and inspires us all to dream like kids and pair our passions with our purpose,” said brand consultant and “the people’s shark,” Daymond John. “The continuous growth of her company has been so impressive and has become an inspiration to other budding entrepreneurs out there. Me & the Bees continues to outperform in the beverage category while meeting the needs of today’s health conscious consumer.”  

 With her five all-natural lemonade flavors sold in more than 1,800 distribution points across the country, Mikaila’s purpose is to sell them to help save the bees, an idea she had from the very beginning after she was stung by two bees in one week when she was just four years old. Her parents encouraged her to do some research about them instead of being scared of them and she learned they were dying at alarming rates.
