Health Inspectors Help Teen Get Hot Dog Stand Permitted
13-year-old Jaequan Faulkner had to temporarily shut down his hot dog stand after somebody reported him for selling food without a license. Instead of making him pack it up, the health inspectors helped him keep the stand open.
The Minnesota Department of Health had received a complaint about Jaequan's hot dog stand and decided to help him out. Health inspectors in Minneapolis pitched in and paid for the $87 permit that the teen required to sell food.
The young entrepreneur wants to get a food cart so that he can take his hot dogs on the road. He runs the stand with the help of his uncle and wants to start making donations to charities that help people with depression.
