Tyler and Jenna McEwen are selling 'Cones for College'
"If we don't have good weather the ice cream doesn't sell as much," says Tyler McEwen of McEwen's Moo Madness. "On a day like this people are gona want ice cream but if you have a rainy day and clouds not as many people are craving ice cream."
"If it's down pouring and we haven't had a lot of customers we usually close down," says Jenna McEwen.
And they've can't have that - their future is on the line. They're selling cones for college.
"We're putting most of it into our college education and so it's helping with that," says Jenna.
And talk about being proactive! Jenna is only 13. Tyler is 15.
"I want to be an architect or engineer," says Tyler.
"I think I want to be a teacher," adds Jenna.
Well they're sure about one thing.They've only been open a few weeks, and they're already learning a lot about saving money, running a business and responsibility.
Warm, sunny weather is good for business
"You have hours and you have to come in even if a friend invites you over you still have to come in but it's still really fun to work here," Tyler says.
Jenna agrees. "It takes a lot of work and a lot of time and dedication but it's all worth it in the end."
They're also learning from Mother Nature too: that no matter how hard you work, some things you just can't control.
"We really learn that when it's sunny you get lost of customers but when it's cloudy and rainy you don't get as many," Tyler says.
The long range forecast for Summer is pretty promising. A hot, drier Summer is in the forecast....so hopefully they be able top stay open longer hours. With each scoop they sell, getting one step closer to college.
