Young local entrepreneurs take care of business
Drumheller will have to be on the lookout for up and coming entrepreneurs this year.
Thirteen year old Katie Hanik and Kelsey Gough have started a new business to make life easier for residents of Drumheller.
The local entrepreneurs have started Kick It Residential Recycling Service.
“We are going door to door, and for 15 dollars we are collecting cardboard, plastic, bottles, anything you can recycle, and taking it to the proper facilities to recycle them, and then the adults don’t have to worry about it,” says Hanik.
The 13 year old girls learned the skills to start their business through the “I’m The Boss” Entrepreneurship Summer Camp held in Drumheller.
“The camp taught us how to be successful business owners and how to take care of business. We split the money in half, and take some money and put it towards the business,” says Hanik.
After opening up business on Thursday, July 14, the girls have already found customers.
“We have had lots of businesses call us and a couple of people from different streets in town, as well. We plan on continuing on with our business until school starts up again.”
After two days of being operational, the girls have made $300 in funds.
