11-Year-Old Mikaila Ulmer Gets Multi-Million Dollar Lemonade Deal with Whole Foods

She’s taking lemonade stands to a whole new level, inking an $11 million deal with grocery giant Whole Foods to sell her own natural lemonade called BeeSweet, made from her great-grandmother’s recipe from the 1940s. But instead of adding sugar or artificial sweetener, Ulmer decided to use honey — even though she wasn’t a fan of bees. “When I was four years old, I got stung by two bees in one week,” she said to NBC News. “It was painful. I was terrified of bees.”

Ulmer, who’s from Austin, Texas, first made headlines in 2015, when she was a contestant on ABC reality TV show Shark Tank and walked away with $60,000 in venture capital to start her business. It’s safe to say that the investment definitely paid off.

BeeSweet will soon be available in at least 55 Whole Foods locations across the country.
