15-year-old student opens business in Chandler

Jones and her sister, Ahlayla Jones, now run the business during their summer break. “My parents always drilled into me the principles of money,” said Jones. “It’s actually been pretty fun. I’ve gotten to know a lot of people and they’ve been really nice,” said Jones. “We haven’t had any rude customers, so that’s been great.”

So that’s just what she did. In between classes at Hamilton High School, Jones researched and wrote a 30-page business plan. “I eat a lot of ice. As I was talking about that with my dad, he said, he’s a businessman himself, and he told me might as well make a business out of it,” said Jones.

With the encouragement of her family, she presented the plan to the management at the Fashion Center, who green-lit her business. That’s the idea behind Ice Therapy, a shaved ice booth set up in front of the food court at Chandler Fashion Center. The owner, 15-year-old Milayna Jones, put in the work and preparation to make her business a success.

“In my free time I’m learning French, Mandarin, Spanish and Japanese,” said Jones. Jones doesn’t quite know what the future holds, but she is a student of both finances and language.
