The sacred naiveté and well-intention fun of the young entrepreneur's lemonade stand is under fire these days.
Stories about the police fining children for not having permits to operate neighborhood lemonade stands has increasingly made headlines in recent months. Brothers in Denver were shut down for not having a $125 a day permit to sell and a set of sisters in Overton, Texas were shut down for not having a "peddlers permit" or a permit from the health department.
But Country Time Lemonade is setting up a legal defense team to change that.
If you were fined or bought a permit in the last year, you can register on Country Time's website and the company will reimburse you.
"So when life gives you arcane laws, make lemonade," a promotional video says.
The company will reimburse fees and fines up to $300 per lemonade stand.
