[b]Holland, MI[/b] - An enterprising teenager in Michigan is laughing all the way to the bank after his city shut down his hot dog cart.

Nathan Duszynski is 13 and was selling franks in downtown Holland.

City zoning laws don't allow food trucks to compete with restaurants so he had to close up shop.

A packaging company heard about the boy's troubles and bought the truck for 25-hundred dollars. :shifty:

That's a lot more than Duszynski paid for it.

Managers at the packaging company say they were impressed with him.

"Just a real go-getter, and at that age that's unusual. It's unusual, I think, that they can relate to adults like he does and so he really caught our eye, so to speak."

The teen originally saved up thousands of dollars to buy the cart so he could pay for college and help his sick parents.

The company plans to let Duszynski use the cart for special occasions, such as the wedding he already has lined up.

Sad that he has sick parents, and his college money when away, however, he as anyone else has to conform to the city laws. Still it is good to see young people attempting to look to the future. . . :)
