I read the best article the other day about financing food trucks, concession trailers and hot dog carts. It gives a plenty of resources and workable plans for getting the money raised when you don't have the funds to get started now. Of course I'm a bit biased, and hot dog cart financing methods had the most appeal to me instantly.
Hot Dog Cart Financing – Leasing
I've spoken on this numerous times and it's not my favorite but – many vendors choose to finance through equipment “leasing” companies.
Your best bet is to get “free” money or to borrow from friends and family.
When I started – I sold everything that wasn't nailed down. Even sold the rugs, lamps and even tools I didn't need or “have to have”.
Of course if I had it to do all over – I'd do it this way.
Or nearly broke. And you can too. From a rented hotel room paying by the week to the lady on the dirt road selling out of crock pot – it's doable. And the results: FAST!
Just gotta know exactly what to do and how to do it.
And many others… well they used one of my plans for starting part time.
Lemonade Bought Her Cart
Yup! Some vendors have started with lemonade vending. Then used that extra cash to start hot dog vending or drop off catering.
But be careful. This business, the cash and the free time you'll have – are addicting. I loved this… This guy pays the DUI attorney with his lemonade vending money.
- invoice factoring
- peer to peer loans
- cash advances
And my favorite of these is… Micro-loans
No matter your choice of hot dog cart financing methods… there's one for you. And this article is fantastic for explaining each one.
