Other folks just love to cook and serve people. For whatever reason, it's hard to wait once you decide to do something.
So for you entrepreneurs in a hurry to get started, here is one quick start idea!
Start With And Electric Cart And Mini Donuts
You will see a lot of street food vendors using propane for hot dog carts, and that's awesome! Those propane carts work fantastic for outdoors where there is good ventilation. However, there are some places propane carts are not allowed, and an electric cart can have an advantage in those situations.
And depending on the dimensions, electric carts can be easier to transport and maneuver — even indoors — without the extra hassle of towing and the weight of fuel tanks. The Lil Dog cart can fit into a pickup truck or the back of a minivan (no hitch or towing needed). Once it's on the ground, you use the handlebars to wheel it through doorways. Park it near an electrical outlet and you're ready to go.
Benefits of Mini Donut Oven
Have you had these mini donuts from the fair? They're small, hot, sweet, and usually greasy. That's part of the deliciousness!
Plus, you need that hot grease to get the sugar and cinnamon to stick when you shake them up in that bag.
There is an electric mini donut oven that State Fair sells, so you can use it to heat up frozen mini donuts so they smell and taste like fried donuts, but without the mess and trouble of hot oil.
Similar to the issues with burning propane, hot oil for deep frying also has extra rules around it (grease-laden vapors and stuff) to prevent fires.
So this electric donut system is another solution that lets you sell hot mini donuts without all of the potential fire hazards.
Plus, if you've ever done any deep frying, you know there is extra work involved in cooling used oil and cleaning up afterwards.
