McDonough kindergartner Treandos Thornton leads his own small bow-tie business, T&N Bow Ties and Apparel, which celebrated its first full year in business earlier this month.

Treandos, 6, is the president and founder and his 3-year-old brother Noah is the vice president.

According to its website, their online boutique offers accessories including bow ties, neckties and handkerchiefs.

Of the selections, eight are sold out.

A news release stated Treandos’ and Noah’s team believe style can have purpose, that of encouraging confidence in individuals of all ages.

“I am excited to help people dress for success,” Treandos said in a statement. “Bow ties can make people feel good about themselves. We like to see people dressed up for school, work or church. Dressing up is pretty cool.”

The kid biz will host a customer appreciation event July 14 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the WorkSpace Boutique, founded by Henry County Commissioner Dee Clemmons, at 968 Eagles Landing Pkwy., Stockbridge.

Attendees can win free bow ties and other prizes.

Treandos is on a mission to help residents in various ways, the release stated.

He successfully led 2016 and 2017 community holiday food drives, which collected hundreds of canned goods for families throughout the Southeast.

The company media relations manager is the boys’ mom, city of Stockbridge Public Information Officer Shana Thornton, also a host on Let’s Talk America radio.
