Brother, sister run successful 'sno konez' business

(WMC-TV) - It all started when 12-year-old Jaden Wheeler and his 11-year-old sister, Amaya, wanted some extra money to buy some toys. Their mother said if they wanted extra spending money, they would have to earn it.

Two years later, hundreds of Memphis teens and adults line up for Kool Kidz Sno Konez.

With more than 20 special flavors, they say they have something for everybody.

"Go bananas, power pina colada, I heart pink lemonade, banging blue Hawaii," Jaden Wheeler rattled off a few of the different flavors he and his sister are serving up around the Bluff City.

The business started in their front yard with a card table, a few flavors, and an ice machine.

Earlier this year, the young entrepreneurs bought a van and they now travel the streets of Memphis cooling residents off with their refreshing treats.

"I'm learning how to run a business, how to manage my money," said Jaden.

While Jaden makes the sno cones, his sister takes customers' orders and their money.

The Kool Kidz Sno Konez truck rolls around the city on Friday nights, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the summer. They even have a website that can tell you more, click here:
