Teen entrepreneur Jaequan Faulkner, 14, owner of Mr. Faulkner's Old-Fashioned Hot Dogs, drumming up business outside of his new location at the Minneapolis Urban League, 2100 Plymouth Ave. N., Minneapolis.
Faulkner gained national attention last year when someone tried to have his hot dog stand at his home shut down because he didn’t have proper permits. Instead of being shut down, city officials and mentors at NEON worked with the young businessman to get him the proper licenses and food handling training.
The new Urban League location is open daily from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. until Aug. 30. Faulkner said he will consider fall hours once he determines his school load as a freshman entering Fair School, Minneapolis.
