Four adorable brothers, all under the age of 12, with the love and desire to make people happy with food and desserts have created a gourmet catering company that makes cookies and more.

The gourmet desserts and cuisines are made with all natural ingredients.

Thanks to their mum and dad, the Billingslea brothers from Atlanta, Georgia – Joshua, 11, Isaiah, 9, Caleb, 7 and Micah, 5 – are the young entrepreneurs and founders of “Yummy Brothers“.

Yummy Brothers is a gourmet catering company that specializes in Yummy Cookies, Yummy Beverages, Yummy Cookie Platters, and Yummy Dog Treats. They also offer catering services.

For the brothers, creating cookies made with recipes handed down from their great grandmother started out as a hobby. They carried their cookies along with them everywhere they go and they soon realized that people loved it.

As a result, they decided to turn their hobby into a business which now offers more than 36 different types of cookies, including lemon white chocolate, snicker-doodle, and classic chocolate chip cookies.

“Everybody would say that our cookies are really good. So, we were just thinking we could make a living off of this selling cookies.

“We went to our dad, we told him that we wanted to start our own business selling cookies and we came together as a family and brainstormed on what the name would be and what the logo would be,” Joshua told 11Alive.

Despite prioritizing their education, the four brothers each have contributions to the business. Caleb loves scooping the cookies while Micah, who is the youngest, is in charge of the quality control.

Even though Yummy Brothers sell online and ship nationwide, the four brothers still find time to attend events in their communities selling the baked goods.

“When we bake them and sell them is usually on the weekends,” they explained.

“We don’t do it every day because we’re kids, and our parents don’t need to treat us like robots,” Isaiah added.

So far Yummy Brothers have sold over 400,000 cookies.”I like to make money,” Micah noted.

However, the kids are not just all about making money. They pay taxes and use the funding for travel expenses, hotel expenses, tents, and clothing merchandise.

They have also ventured into another business called, “Kidpreneurexpo” with the profits they have received from the cookie sales. Kidpreneurexpo is aimed at helping other kids to start businesses.
