A lemonade stand is a business that is commonly owned and operated by a child or children, to sell lemonade. The term may also be used to refer to stands that sell similar beverages like iced tea.
In some areas, Lemonade stands are usually in technical violation of several laws, including operation without a business license, lack of adherence to health codes, and sometimes child labor laws. Despite this, prosecutions of lemonade stand operations are extremely rare, and when lemonade stands are shut down by authorities, the events can make national headlines in the country it occurred. They create news reports portraying examples of governmental authorities overstepping their responsibilities.
In June 2015, a Yahoo news article reported that a child's lemonade stand was shut down in the town of Overton, Texas. When the mother tried to get a permit, she was told she would be required to have her kitchen inspected.
