Do You Know the Next Lemon Boss?


Do you know anyone 5-12 years old that’s driven, fun, and looking to start their own business? If so, Hills Bank has a program that will enable them to go just that by becoming a Lemon Boss! This summer, Hills Bank wants to help teach kids about finances, customer service, and running a business by providing them with an opportunity to run their own lemonade stand.

How does Lemon Boss work?
To become a Lemon Boss, kids will need to fill out an application, just as they would if applying for a loan from the bank. There are 2 different applications, one for kids ages 5-7 and another for kids ages 8-12. All applications must be completed and brought to your nearest Hills Bank location to be instantly approved to receive a Lemon Boss kit.

Lemon Boss kits include:

  • Hills Bank cups, money bag, and pitcher
  • Packets of lemonade mix
  • “Financed by Hills Bank” sticker
  • “I’m a Lemon Boss” button
  • Wooden spoon
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Start-up money for their business

After summer is over, participants can bring their Income Statement Sheet back to a local Hills Bank location to receive a Lemon Boss Certificate of Completion and get their photo on the Lemon Boss Hall of Fame!

If your child’s Lemon Boss stand is going to be open, let us know via social media with #LemonBoss or by posting a picture to Hills Bank’s Facebook page, and we’ll even help  advertise thier lemonade stand by sharing it on our social media channels!

All of us at Hills Bank look forward to seeing Lemon Bosses out in our communities this summer!
