Layton Hills Mall has selected over 35 businesses and 90 youth participants to take part in the 3rd Annual KIDZ BIZ event.

KIDZ BIZ is a program that encourage young entrepreneurs between the ages of 6 and 17 to learn about business practices, sales, and financial responsibility while running their own company for one day in the Layton Hills Mall. In addition, prizes are awarded for various categories and participants keep all the money they earn to invest back into their business venture.

The KIDZ BIZ market day will be held Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 12p to 5p on the lower level Dillard’s wing. This is the perfect time for children to test out their concepts, sales skills and see if their business model will work.  The event will conclude with an awards ceremony at 5:30pm.

“Seeing the event go from 40 participants to 90 in one year is amazing!” says Danielle Bendinelli, Layton Hills Mall Marketing Director. “KIDZ BIZ businesses must have minimal to no parental involvement, so the best part is the youth are the creative force behind their own concepts. From handmade items to providing a personal services or even authoring their own book, the program offers an outlet to a wide variety or interests.”

The KIDZ BIZ market day is open to all ages and the public is encouraged to attend and shop to show support for these young, local entrepreneurs. A big thanks to the following community partners: America First Credit Union, Davis Hospital and Medical Center, Ed Kenley Ford,  Utah Educational Savings Plan, SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium, Silly Rabbit Shirts, Weber State University,  Dartside: Indoor Nerf Gun Arena & Davis Education Foundation.
