World's youngest entrepreneur Mollie Price opens her third sweet shop

A six-year-old girl has become one of the world’s youngest entrepreneurs.

Mollie Price, who lives in Wales, has her own chain of shops specialising in traditional British sweets.

The youngster has just opened her third Mollie’s store and, according to her mother Becky, she plans to expand the business.

Becky said, "It might sound crazy but believe Mollie is the real brains behind the operation.

"It was Mollie's idea to set up the shop. She used to love going to pick 'n' mix places and saw there was a gap in the market for it."

She said that Mollie gets up at 5am every Sunday to visit suppliers in Birmingham and helps to pick the stock that goes on sale in the stores.

It took Richard Shonn, managing director of 151 Products, three years to find a warehouse big enough for his requirements.
