Texas Authorities Shut Down Girls’ Lemonade Stand, Demand Permit

“Their mother, Sandi Evans says her daughters have an entrepreneurial spirit.”

Apparently without proper permits, an entrepreneurial spirit can only get you so far. Two 8 year old girls had their lemonade stand shut down by police in Overton, TX because Texas House Bill 970 “prohibits the sale of food which requires time or temperature control to prevent spoilage. Since lemonade technically must be refrigerated to prevent the growth of bacteria, by law, the girls cannot sell it without an inspection and permit.”

If these girls can get in trouble with the law for lack of proper permits, then no business is safe. Give us a call at 1-800-679-3611 and we'll help keep your business, reputation, and lemonade safe.
