Here is an update from a new hot dog vendor using a Cash Cow Cart (more on this cart here) in Colorado Springs.
If you're curious what it's like just getting started with a hot dog cart, you will appreciate Ryan's story about his very first week in business. Enjoy!
Ryan's Cash Cow Cart Success…
I hope all is well. So after buying my Cash Cow Cart from you (more on this cart here), I've had my first couple days of sales in Colorado Springs and it has been wild!!
Some days I get kicked out of locations, but I have a few spots that have worked out for me recently. This weekend I had my first $300 day for 3 hours of work which was pretty incredible.
Man, you were right about this job still being hard work, I get a great workout to say the least.
This past weekend I was selling at a park in my neighborhood and I talked to a neighbor who hunts Elk and Deer and grinds his own sausages and brats and he said he would be willing to give me about 10lbs a month for FREE!!
His dad has his own cattle and farm where he sells meat products as well so I'm hopefully going to get a good connection for some unique dogs and brats there too.
It has absolutely been hard work but also very rewarding. Earning pay through sweat and sunburns! I have met some great people and have gotten great feedback from my community!
I can see myself enjoying this job for years to come.
Just wanted to give you an update and say thanks, without your book and videos, I most likely would have never tried vending and I'd still be doing something I hate, while working for someone else.
Everything about this business is all my own responsibility, which makes it even more rewarding. I attached a couple pictures of my set up. Thanks for everything!Ryan F., Peak Dogs & Catering
Thank you Ryan!
Ryan, thank you for sharing your first week story with everybody.
That sounds like a fantastic start, and I bet elk and deer are popular in your area! The Cash Cow cart is perfect for that.
Love your bright umbrella, blue sky, and mountain view. Keep up the great work and let us know how it goes!
