The initiative was conceived by Texas entrepreneur Michael Holthouse. The concept came to Michael after having his own lemonade stand and entrepreneurial experience with his daughter.

Lemonade Day started in Houston in 2007 and has expanded to nearly 50 cities around the United States and two countries outside the United States, Canada and South Africa.
