Mundelein boy who founded Felix's Famous Cookies featured at Chicago Hispanic Business Expo

It's opening day of the Chicago Hispanic Business Expo, and one businessman - or shall we say boy - is getting all the attention.

Felix Castillo of Mundelein was just 6-years-old when he founded Felix's Famous Cookies in 2011.

Together with his mom they started selling homemade cookies from a recipe inspired by his late grandmother.

It started out just as a hobby, but now the cookies are sold in eight stores and shipped all over the country.

"I've definitely learned how to network, how to be a lot more social," Castillo said.

Castillo says when he grows up, he plans to go to college.

He says he may take a business class but is worried about learning math and money management.
