Faulkner has been the owner of Mister Faulkner's Old Fashioned Hot Dogs. He has been in the business since 2016, but on Monday, he finally was able to obtain city permits. 

"I'm letting everyone know I can do this," he said. 

He is helped by his uncle and cousin in the Willard-Hay neighborhood. The stand serves all-beef hotdogs, with or without chips and a drink. 

Jayquan said it's not about the money, but he does plan to use his summer earnings to purchase some snazzier clothes and a food cart to help grow his business.
