Teen entrepreneur launches Chandler Fashion Center business

Milayna Jones is looking forward to her junior year at Hamilton High School in Chandler this fall. Until then, the 15-year-old will be busy running her own business at Chandler Fashion Center. The Ice Therapist is the brainchild of Jones who has been developing her business since the beginning of 2021.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as Milayna’s father, Tank Jones is also a local entrepreneur and busy film actor and her mother Nicole Jones also owns her own business, Total Health by Nicole.

The fledgling business owner began creating a comprehensive 30-page business plan back in April. “It took me about a week to put it together, and I worked on it in between my school classes,” said Milayna Jones.

“This kid sat her mom and I down, had snack and drinks, pitched her business plan to us, and asked us for an investment,” said Tank Jones. “She did her research, had her projections, knew who her competition was, and their numbers!” Milayna’s parents were impressed and encouraged her to present her business plan to Chandler Fashion Center.
