Teen Opens Hot Dog Stand to Help Disabled Parents – City Shuts Him Down

In Holland, Michigan, a 13-year-old entrepreneur thought he would be able to sell hot dogs and financially help his disabled parents with the purchase of a food cart. Unfortunately, city zoning officials have shut down his business, based on an ordinance that prohibits competition to brick-and-mortar restaurants from mobile food vendors.

Nathan Duszynski wanted to help out his family and raise money for college. His mother has epilepsy and his father has multiple sclerosis. He had been a vendor during Tulip Time and was setting up his hot dog stand on a privately owned parking lot at Reliable Sports on River Avenue.

Nathan bought the cart with $1,200 he saved from mowing lawns and shoveling snow. He thought he had jumped properly through all the licensing and permitting hoops. But the city shut him down. The hot dog stand violated a city ordinance.

Perhaps its time for the city of Holland, Michigan to  boycot the “brick and mortar” enterprises and demand that entrepreneurs, regardless of their age, be given a chance to do business in America…

Shame on Holland, Michigan.

And, where is that so-called “job creator”, Barack Obama, when enterprising young people need him?

p.s. today is Golf Day – don’t expect any rapid response – he needs to have a “poll” taken by a focus group to determine whether or not he should respond…
