Niagara Gazette — As a fan of the whole “it takes a village” theory on raising children, I can’t help but interject here that if you are driving by 7th and Niagara streets any time soon, try to swing by Billy and Jaquayla’s stand and purchase a cool, sweet drink. A quarter is a pretty cheap price to pay to fortify the business acumen of some ambitious city kids.
Remember though, because they’re kids, they might not always be there.
“I think we’ll probably stick with it most of the summer, but not all,” Billy told me.
Which is fine. Because it is summer vacation, after all. And knowing when to open and when to close is probably the most important business lesson of all.
