Bee Sweet Lemonade

Bee Sweet Lemonade10 year-old Mikaila Ulmer and her dad, Theophilus Ulmer, pitch Bee Sweet Lemonade, a line of fresh-squeezed lemonade drinks sweetened with Texas wildflower honey, flaxseed, and mint, in Shark Tank episode 628. Mikaila got interested in bees when she got stung at age four. Her grandma sent her some recipes for lemonade to help her deal with the trauma. As Mikaila got interested in lemonade, her interest in bees grew too.

Over the years, she became fascinated by bees and their role in the ecosystem. She also got real good at making lemonade. Mikaila sold Bee Sweet Lemonade at youth entrepreneurial events and her own lemonade stand and advocated for the bees; she donated a portion of her profits to various organizations devoted to saving bees too.

Fast forward a few more years and Mikaila has Bee Sweet Lemonade all over Austin area markets and restaurants, including  Whole Foods Markets, TOMS, Peoples Rx, MAX's Wine Dive, Farmhouse Delivery, Quickie Pickie, East Side Pies, Barton Hills Market, henri’s, and The Natural Gardener. She's likely looking to the Sharks to help her expand into more markets. Will a Shark be sweet on Bee Sweet Lemonade?

Bee Sweet Lemonade Shark Tank Recap

Mikaila will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. She’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Bee Sweet Lemonade will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.

RESULT of the pitch: DEAL with Daymond for $60,000 in exchange for 25% equity.

  1. I wish you would market the lemonade In Arizona. I am diabetic and I like the idea of using honey versus other sweetners

  2. I want to try it! Especially the one with pear. I hope whole foods brings it to Tennessee.

  3. Do you sell anywhere in Arkansas?
