How to Get a Location For Hot Dog Cart
Hi folks! I get questions all the time from people looking for advice on finding a great location to set up a hot dog cart or food vending business. Obviously, location is one of the most important pieces of a successful street food business!
A couple asked recently, how they could get permission to sell hot dogs at the courthouse, when they'd already been told “no.” This happens regularly, and there are some good reasons for it, but if you know how to approach the situation, you will have a better chance of getting a “yes.”
First of all, don't call and ask. Go in person and talk to somebody, and keep track of the names of people you are working with, because that's important. Watch the video for details, and search LearnHotDogs.com for the free advice I've given to others in the same situation. And if you just want to skip to the quickest solution, try this Vend Anywhere course. It has all of my tips and best advice in one place, so you don't have to spend time researching it on your own. You will learn how to get permission to almost any location you want for your food cart or food truck business.
