In Minneapolis, Minnesota, 13-year-old Jaequan Faulkner opened up a little hot dog stand in hopes of raising enough money to buy new school clothes.

Jaequan hit a snag, though, because his business was not officially permitted. According to the city, all businesses that serve food to the public must pass city health inspections.

Word got around fast, including to the health department, and when some people learned the hot dog stand might get shut down, they sprang into action.

The city of Minneapolis stepped up, conducted the inspection and allowed Jaequan to continue selling hot dogs.

And since the minor controversy, more customers have shown up to support his efforts.

Jaequan has had such a great time and has been so encouraged by his success that he hopes to buy a food cart for next summer -- and continue to put smiles on the faces of customers. (WILX-TV)
