Sisters Andria (8) and Zoey Green (7) attempted to run a lemonade stand on Monday, near their home in Overton, Texas, when they were reprimanded by a local police officer for operating their stand without a permit.

The girls told CBS 19 that they started the lemonade stand as a way to raise money to take their dad to Splash Kingdom for Father’s Day, and that they were “doing just fine until the cops came.”

While Overton Police Chief Clyde Carter told CBS 19 that the girls “cannot just get over there and make lemonade and have it for sale on the side of the road without permits,” he also said that he is not aware of the reason behind the rule.

The permit is required by Texas House Bill 970, which mandates that the “sale of food which requires time or temperature control to prevent spoilage” is prohibited without a “Peddler’s Permit.”

 

On Wednesday, Carter released the dash cam footage from the officer’s stop at the lemonade stand. When the officer asked if the girls had a permit from the city to run the stand, Sandi Evans, the girls’ mother, said she didn’t know they needed one.

“For a lemonade stand? I had no clue,” Evans said. “I knew we had to for garage sales and stuff like that, but I didn’t know little kids had to for a lemonade stand.”

Overton Police told KLTV that following the exchange, a family friend went to Overton City Hall to obtain a Peddler’s Permit for the girls. While the city was willing to waive the $150 fee, staff members would not let the Green sisters obtain a permit until they contacted the health department and an inspection was conducted.

KLTV reported that the girls are planning on setting up another stand on Saturday, but instead of charging for lemonade, they will give it away for free, and will accept donations.
