Four Auburn siblings have become young entrepreneurs by selling tasty treats.

Nine-and-a-half-year-old Elizabeth Hooks has teamed up with her siblings to create the Fab Four Better Buttered Biscuit Kitchen where they sell breakfast outside their Auburn home. Elizabeth, who thought of the idea recently while coming home from ballet practice, said it’s a jump start on what she hopes becomes a career.

She is joined by siblings 9-year-old Grace, 7-year-old Calvin and Maggie, 6. Their father, Mark, prepares business plans for a company so that was the first recommendation when his children approached him about the idea.

Elizabeth created the business plan and the four were able to turn a profit by their third day. The kitchen offers biscuits that can come with sausage and depending on the day they may also have other treats such as blueberry muffins or banana nut bread.

“We bought supplies with money from our own allowance and put $19 to it and bought what we needed,” Elizabeth said.

With their matching tie-dye shirts the Hooks set up a table outside their Wyngate Road home where they have a cooler packed with food and a sign proclaiming them the Fab Four Better Buttered Biscuit Kitchen.

The Fab Four passed out flyers and aid their mom, Melanie, in preparing the food that is served.

“It’s really fun because you get a lot of customers at the end because it’s about to close as they go to work,” Grace said.

Melanie says that she wasn’t as excited about the business at first, but quickly came around when she saw their ambition. Next year the group will become the Fantastic Five after another sibling enters the world.

“They’ve been super dedicated to it,” she said.
