Mishawaka entrepreneur sells skin care products at University Park Mall

MISHAWAKA — Zion Bradford is an entrepreneur with big plans. 

“My goal is to have over 30 kiosks spread throughout the United States, and to have a franchise of my business,” said the 22-year-old owner of the body care products company Yoni Jay, LLC

She also acknowledges the humble beginnings of her dream.

“As a kid, I liked making stuff in the bath tub, putting lotions together or making concoctions,” she said.

Now, she sells her soaps, lotions and body butter products online and at a kiosk at University Park Mall.
