If only all of our entrepreneurial spirits were as motivated as Cameron Joudrey’s is. The 14-year-old earned his keep shovelling driveways, mowing lawns and selling baked goods to the neighbourhood until he decided to take his self-employment to the next level.
After saving his pennies working at his dad Earl’s Port City Coffee market stall on Saturdays at the Alderney Landing Farmers’ Market (2 Ochterloney Street)—yeah, he did that job, too—he debuted his brainchild Cam’s Stadium Favourites to market-goers in early April.
A sports fan, Joudrey went to eats you could find at the ball game for his stall, like nuts, canned soda and hotdogs. Regular, all-beef dogs, yes, but also some special creations like The Hick (a hot dog coated in peanut butter and hickory sticks) and the PBJ Crunch (that’s a hod dog coated in peanut butter, jelly and Captain Crunch). Is it just me or is Cam a genius? He’ll spend the summer playing ball, developing his menu and getting involved in Alderney Landings outdoor events, here’s betting we’ll see much more from this businessman.
