Passionate at Central by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

Walking through the city of St. Pete in Florida, found this small hot dog business. While talking to this gentleman it amaze me on how people have that desire to live a create goals in life. He said that their goal is to make the best tasting hot dogs in St. Pete. He also was telling me that it’s been only four months on the corner of 6th and Central and already made so many friends. They named the business ‘Demen Dogs’ because is named after St. Petersburg’s founding members, Peter Demen.
