Our staff is diligently trained in safe handling, storing and shipping practices and procedures so that the produce you receive from Sunrise is safe and fresh!
Sunrise Fresh Produce has every type of customer imaginable - but one of our customers stands out from the rest! Kinyah Braddock is the founder and CEO of B Chill Lemonade… and she is only 8-years old!
This young entrepreneur started thinking about creating a business after being challenged by her dad to come up with a ‘big idea’. Kinyah explains that the recipe came to her in a dream and she credits God for sending the message. Those who have tasted her lemonade agree that it is out-of-this-world delicious!
Twice a week Kinyah’s mother, Valerie Braddock brings her to Sunrise Fresh Produce in Jackson, MS and they purchase cases of lemons. Some weeks they purchase over 1,000 lemons! Since beginning her endeavor in January 2017, Kinyah has prepared and sold more than 500 gallons of her home-made lemonade. Kinyah may not be Sunrise Fresh Produce’s biggest customer, but she definitely has put a big squeeze on our hearts!
B Chill Lemonade comes in original, coconut, mango, strawberry and peach flavors. If you would like more information about this young lemonade mogul you can visit her B Chill Lemonade Facebook page!
