City Shuts Down Teen's Hot Dog Vendor Cart!

(Editor's note: Doug Johnson, stepfather of Nathan Duszynski, has reportedly been arrested in connection with a warrant for felony fraud. We are currently investigating. Further developments will be reported by Michigan Capitol Confidential.)

In Holland, Mich., 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. The Mackinac Center's own Anne Schieber investigates.
