    Black Enterprise 2011 Teen Entrepreneurs of the Year

    We are a family business that likes to have fun. We are two brothers, who wanted to help our parents pay for our sister’s tuition at a new school she had been accepted into. So, one night, my brother and I were in our rooms thinking of ideas of things we could do. Having gone to our schools summer camp and spending money at a shave ice stand on campus, we saw how many kids loved shave ice. Brain Blast: this was our business idea! So, we shared the idea with our parents, they supported us and loaned us the money to buy our equipment (with interest) to get started. Our sister helped us come up with the name for our business, AJ’s Hawaiian Iceez.

    The name of our company is AJ’s Hawaiian Iceez (a dba of Holland & Holland Enterprises). The “A” is for Adam; the “J” is for Jonathan; and the “z” at the end of Iceez is for Zoe, our little sister. We are two brothers and a sister, just making something that we all love to eat, great Hawaiian Snow!

    Wow, Sistha Cherryblossom, What an inspiring story on this beautiful Sunday. I am going to show this to some of my young nieces and nephews in hopes that it will show and inspire them also. This is the time in their lives to formulate plans for their future. Its never to early to start.
    Thanks for sharing!
