In September 2013, Peetz Perks became the first winner of the new “Affiliated Category” in the Celebration for Young Entrepreneurs business competition. Young Americans created this category to recognize the many businesses started by large groups, schools, scout troops, and the like.
Peetz Perks is a hot spot at Peetz High School in Peetz, Colorado. Read more about the students and their winning business here.
Each winning business receives a cash prize to help build up the business. Since September, Peetz Perks has been able to accomplish a lot with the prize money given by Young Americans.
The students added a second blender for more expedient sales. They also added several new smoothie and frappe flavors for increased customer satisfaction. Additionally, the students experienced a job-shadow experience at another school in the Peetz, Colorado area to share ideas and learning experiences. Finally, Peetz Perks purchased some much needed business supplies that help to make the entrepreneurial education experience a bit easier for the students.
Tammy Fehringer, the FBLA advisor at Peetz High School, offered these words with her business update: “Thank you again so much for the opportunity to expand our business. We will continue to put the funds to good use.”
Thanks for the update, Peetz Perks, and good luck with business!
