Mason Wright Makes History As Georgia's Youngest Restaurateur At Age 14

Mason Wright is now Georgia’s youngest restaurant owner at age 14 thanks to his business, Mason’s Super Dogs — a carryout restaurant located in Stonecrest, Georgia.

The idea to become an entrepreneur first hit him at age nine after he did not want to depend on his allowance for money. Initially, he explored washing cars, cutting grass, and selling snacks. 

Then he managed to convince his parents and grandparents to purchase him a hot dog cart. Mason proposed he would bring home his report card every six weeks with straight A’s in return for the cart.

Mason was in business and entered a competition at Morehouse College in 2018. Despite losing competition the 14-year-old managed to convince President David Thomas to allow him to sell on campus.

His wish was granted, but under one familiar circumstance, Mason was to retain straight A’s in school.

“He said as long as I have straight A’s then I could sell hot dogs on-campus. I had a lot of good foot traffic from students at all of the colleges in the University Center & that was really fun.”   

Initially, he had the goal of turning his hot dog cart into a food truck but like many of us, the pandemic came through and put a halt to his plans.

With delays in receiving permits, business licensing & health inspections, Mason came across a property for lease & decided to use his money to rent it & fix it up with the support of his family.

In October 2020, Mason’s Super Dogs opened its doors for business and the rest is history! 

On opening day, Mason had lines formed all around the parking lot in support, much like what he saw in New York City which served as inspiration for him to ask for the hot dog cart in the first place.
