The push for entrepreneurship has inspired a new generation of business-minded individuals who are eagerly starting their ventures at an earlier age than their predecessors. One Philadelphia-based ten-year-old decided to do just that by launching his own food truck business.

Micah Idris is the owner of Michah’s Mixx, a lemonade truck made from an old school bus. The 5th grader started the idea in March of 2020, selling his lemonade with a stand on the sidewalk. Once his drinks became a big hit, his mother Danielle decided to help his business by looking for a suitable vehicle to help Micah become more mobile. She eventually found an school bus for $4,000 available for purchase from a private school.

Micah and his mother started a fundraising campaign to help him to expand his venture to get the necessary supplies to keep the business going. He shared his progress on his Instagram page about his growing food business.

“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,” he wrote in his caption. “My mom 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!”

Customers can contribute to Idris food truck through this GoFundMe page to help him reach his $10,000 to help Micah fund his entrepreneurial dreams.
