Belinda’s Tips for Keeping your Kid’s Lemonade Stand on the Right Side of the Law

Studio 4
Cases of city government shutting down stand kid run concession stands (lemonade, baked goods, arts/crafts) are becoming more prevalent across the nation.
 
Tips:
– Check with local authorities before going up for business to check what the rules are.
– Look at law and see if there is a way to have the stand without bring the rules into it. 
      Example; offer free drinks taking tips vs charging
– Get necessary permits if necessary where the stand will be opened to avoid conflict/issue.
– If the “business” will be on private property
– If you know your neighbors will be okay with it
 
NOTE:  The Texas Panhandle has not had any documented cases of a kids’ stand being shut down. 
 
Belind’s Parenting Challenge:  Assess the rules and weigh the potential outcome for setting up shop beforehand.  Do your homework in order to avoid a big headache.
