Meet A'Ron Burns, a 17-year-old high school student and entrepreneur from Omaha, Nebraska who has launched his own brick-and-mortar ice cream shop called Roll-N-Sweetz. He makes history as one of the youngest restaurant entrepreneurs in the state of Nebraska.

A'Ron launched Roll-N-Sweetz Rolled Ice Cream Shop last year as a subsidiary of the Burns Family LLC, wherein he is the president.

He was also thinking of pursuing a career in criminal justice before. But he decided to push through with entrepreneurship because he wanted to create a business that fills a void in their community while connecting with people as well.

"With entrepreneurship, I can provide jobs, I can provide peace, I can provide comfort. And with ice cream, it's also an emotional support food. So, it also would help me connect to people who are going through things I might not know, but the ice cream might help," A'Ron told WLBT.

The ice cream shop was not his first attempt in business. He once opened an e-commerce store that failed, but instead of giving up, he used that failure to try again with a new endeavor. Read more.
