Copycat Chick-fil-A Frosted Lemonade

​My entire family loves Chick-fil-A. After all it is the home of the best chicken sandwich and waffle fries. And who can resist turning in the kid’s meal prize for the famous soft-serve vanilla Icedream? Everyone’s favorite chicken sandwich establishment is also well known for the perfect drink. All year long you can buy the Chick-fil-A tart lemonade either from the fountain or by the jug.

During the hot summer months lemonade is enjoyed by many. And we all know that kids are all about setting up a lemonade stand.

How to set up a lemonade stand?

Here are some tips on how to set up a lemonade stand:

  1. Choose a location. A busy street corner or park is a great place to set up your stand. You want to be somewhere where people will see you and be tempted to stop for a refreshing glass of lemonade.
  2. Decorate your stand. Make your stand stand out from the crowd by decorating it with bright colors, balloons, or signs. You can also set up a tablecloth or banner to make your stand look more inviting.
  3. Set up your supplies. You’ll need a table, chairs, cups, ice, lemonade mix or lemons and sugar, and a moneybox. Make sure you have everything you need before you start selling lemonade.
  4. Make your lemonade. Use fresh lemons and sugar to make your lemonade taste delicious. You can also add different flavors, such as strawberry, raspberry, or lime.
  5. Price your lemonade. You don’t want to overcharge your customers, but you also want to make a profit. A good starting price is $0.50-$1.00 per cup.
  6. Be friendly and welcoming. Smile and greet your customers as they approach your stand. Make sure they feel welcome and appreciated.
  7. Have fun! Running a lemonade stand is a great way to make some money and have some fun with your friends. So relax, enjoy yourself, and make some memories that will last a lifetime.
