A couple of years ago, 13-year-old Jaequan Faulkner started a hot dog stand selling hot dogs, chips, and soda to the locals. Most everyone loved it, but one person didn’t – and they reported him to the city for lack of a food vendor permit.
But instead of shutting him down, Minneapolis Health Director Dan Huff took a more positive route and helped Jaequan qualify as a real business! The health department paid his permit fee, equipped him with a thermometer and a hand-washing station, and trained him in food safety regulations. They even set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to buy him a mobile hot dog stand.
Jaequan originally started the business to help him work through depression and raise funds to buy clothes. It’s so nice to see that city officials have a heart and are working with him to make his small business a success!
