Berrien County hot dog stands, cafes, and even drug stores are all growing through the recession.

A hot dog shop is one of the newest additions in Berrien County, and the owner says he's sold more than 2,600 hot dogs since he opened Saturday.

Berrien County has shown significant growth over the last few weeks. Huddle House and Cadillac Ranch have also both expanded. Mimi's Café plans to reopen very soon, and Dogwood Pharmacy is moving into a bigger facility.

And this is retirement life for the Side Street Dogs owner. He even graduated from the Hot Dog University in Chicago, and one of the requirements was selling hot dogs in the streets of that city.

"Well, a south Georgia guy like me in March, there was ice and snow every where, and I'm like freezing to death, and I'm all bundled up in 17 degrees, and we sold about 125 Chicago dogs in an hour," said Lamar Jowers of Side Street Dogs.

"If you're interested in opening a business, we still have plenty of space downtown and in other areas of our community," said Crissy Staley of the Berrien County Chamber of Commerce.

Arts Afire and BC sports have also opened in Nashville.
