The city of Maricopa issued four business licenses last week.
Permits are necessary for all businesses headquartered locally or outside of Maricopa to do business within the city limits. Permits are valid for one year.
Three of the companies that took out licenses are local and one is located outside of the city.
Local business include Al’S Dogs, Renaissance Medical Properties LLC and Luney Services.
Al’s Dogs is a new business opened by local resident and realtor Al Paine.
“I thought opening a hot dog stand would be a good opportunity to meet people and earn some extra money,” Paine said. “I have a background in the restaurant industry.”
Al’s Dogs is a portable hot dog stand that will be located typically, Monday to Saturday, in the parking lot of the Old Stage Stop Marketplace at the intersection of John Wayne Parkway and Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway.
The one Valley-based business receiving a permit was Grand Canyon Pools and Spas LLC.
