Junior Troop 416 earned the “Business Owner” badge at Rita’s Italian Ice Creamery in Castle Rock. The girls learned how the owners decided to open the small business and some of the steps of setting up the store. They learned about marketing and customer service. They toured the store, watched how the ice was made, and learned about day-to-day operations. The girls also got to taste some of the ice! The owners answered all the girls questions about the business. They had a first-hand experience about small business and learned a lot of new information.
We loved learning about this small business that does a lot to help their community. Knowing about future options is exciting! We were able to ask so many questions.
