Lillian Thomas: Mason’s Super Dogs introduce yourself and tell me your name and what business are you in?
Mason : My name is Mason Wright, of Mason’s Super Dogs. I’m 11 years old, and I run my own business. I’m the founder, owner, [and] CEO of that business, as well.
Lillian Thomas: : You’ve been doing it for a year, so you started when you were 10 years old?
Lillian Thomas: So, where was the cart purchased from?
Mason: Well, we purchased it from online
Lillian Thomas: Right.
Mason: I saved up for months washing dogs, cutting grass, raking leaves and cleaning garages. The cart cost $400.00. I had just visited New York with my sister and I knew that what I wanted to do; I wanted to be a businessman.
Lillian Thomas: That is great. You’re from Atlanta, and you grew up here and the family’s been here a while, right?
Mason: Yes, that is (Right.).
Lillian Thomas: That’s great. What do your class mates think about you being a CEO?
Mason: They think it is lit!
Lillian Thomas: What was the idea behind the work and the business? You wanted to make some money, obviously. But what was the influence? Why Hot Dogs?
Mason: Well, I chose hot dogs because everyone loves hot dogs! I mean how many people don’t like hotdogs? You can travel the world and people love hot dogs.
Lillian Thomas: Who doesn’t like hot dogs?
Mason: (Laughs) I know, right? It’s weird.. Also, I want to make hot dogs. It’s a little off topic, but I want to make hot dogs that have veggies in them, are meatless, and other types of stuff, so I can help other people who can’t really eat hot dogs, as well.
But I started my business because I wanted to make my own money, and so I could do many things like buy the toys I couldn’t get because we didn’t have enough money, or give to my sister’s anti-gun violence campaign because they need money, or help my family.
Lillian Thomas: : I think that’s a great reason. Atlanta has a lot of young people that think they cannot achieve anything. You want to be a role model to them and show them how to make money legally.
Lillian Thomas: : Yeah.
Mason: I’m just so thankful to have a family that supports my dreams. I love it.
