DARIEN - Two Darien teenagers are taking an entrepreneurial approach to their summer vacation.

Charlie Stout and Jack Johnston opened their own business, called the Non-Stop Donut Shop. They say they pitched the idea to their parents, who gave them some start-up money.

"It's kind of fun to be your own boss," says Stout.

The pair has a regular spot at the Rowayton Farmers Market on Friday afternoons.
