Mr. Faulkner's Old-Fashioned Hot Dogs is a hot dog stand started by 15-year-old Jaequan Faulkner and his uncle in the summer of 2016. He took the summer off the next year before resuming in the summer of 2018. That year, he had to overcome adversities and gained national recognition for his efforts. He has been a staple of the neighborhood in the summers since with the support of the City and local organizations such as the Minneapolis Urban League. He keeps it basic with hot dogs, Polish sausages, and chips, and he serves it all with a smile.
