“I would always pass an abandoned shack on the way to class and thought it would be a good place for a hotdog stand. I took an entrepreneurial class in college for non-business majors and it really inspired me. I thought, why not give it a go with the hotdog stand? I tracked down the owner and told him I wanted to rent the shack. I didn’t really have anything to lose since nobody was depending on me but myself— it was kind of a win-win. I sold everything I had that was worth anything for the seed money, and here I am, 10 years later with 4 stores operating and looking to do more.”
