Recent high school graduate now owner of ice cream parlor
BRADLEY, Maine (AP) — A high school student in Maine is now the proud owner of an ice cream parlor that he purchased a month before his graduation.
Eighteen-year-old Jack Watkins bought Spencer’s Ice Cream in Bradley last month, and graduated from high school on Sunday. WABI-TV reports many of his employees are older than him, including his sister Emily Watkins.
Watkins says running a business is hard work, but he’s excited to do it and wants to give back to the community. He says he is collecting donations for a family who lost their home in a fire.
Employee Jean Abbot says she’s excited about the store’s future, and Watkins says he’s gearing up to run special events over the summer.
