Smoothie Business Project

Smoothie Project at King Kekaulike High School –   Teacher Mara Murphy worked several weeks with her special needs students to structure a business plan making the project operational by end of January 2012.  The Project immediately became self supporting active through end of May 2013. Let me have teacher Mara Murphy tell you in her own words how exciting the project was for her kids:

   “I am happy to report that we sold 150 smoothies on our first day!!!  We opened shop on Friday, and it went better than I thought it would.  Our students were so excited.   We are putting together an envelope of thank you cards this week.  I want to send pictures as well, and didn’t have time to take them on Friday.   Thanks again for your donation, it would not have been possible to do this without it. Steve made this process very easy by giving us the idea and the outline.    We have some kinks to work out in the next few weeks, but the business part of it will be easy.  It was finding the money to get started that was the hardest part of this process.  Again, thanks so much for thinking of us.  We are all so excited and can’t wait to see how this does long term.”  ~ Mara
