MINNEAPOLIS - A Minneapolis teen's hot dog stand has been the subject of a lot of buzz this year, but he still wasn't prepared for the surprises in store this week.
Thirteen-year-old Jaequan Faulkner's hot dog stand became a hit this summer. But he soon encountered a challenge when the city of Minneapolis received a complaint about his stand.
Instead of shutting him down, the city and several nonprofit groups helped him get a permit to do business officially.
Since then, Jaequan's story has traveled far. He was even visited by the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile.
But some of the biggest surprises came when he appeared on Steve Harvey this week.
Harvey told Jaequan's story to the crowd - and then presented him with a $10,000 check for his business from ConAgra Brands food company. But he wasn't done yet. He brought on Shark Tank's Daymond John, who gave Jaequan a shiny new hot dog stand from Hammacher Schlemmer.
Jaequan's stand, Mr. Faulkner's Old Fashioned Hot Dogs, is Located at 1510 Penn Avenue North.
