RoLin Dawgs has been struggling at his Big Lots location but recently switched over to a Lowes Home Improvement Store.
Hot dog vendor locations aren't all the same. I know vendors making a killing in front of Big Lots locations, but it comes down to the particular location. Some locations will blow your socks off, they have a potential to bring in hundreds daily, but the same location somewhere else may be a dud.
Rob didn't give up. He didn't quit. He tried other locations with his Big Dog Cart, knowing that eventually he would find a hot dog vendor honey hole location.
“What a great first weekend at Lowes I made more than I would have in a week at Big lots parking lot…..
I even had to hire my girlfriends daughter to help out.”
Rob is the owner of RoLin Dawgs and is another vendor whom I admire for his tenacity. Simply put, he won't give up.

I’m sending you some pics maybe you can give me a couple ideals on shaping my area up some.
I had a lot of request for lemonade so I guess that’s going to be the next thing I look into.
I know its not much to some but to me it was great compared to where I was. The first day I only brought a box of dogs and a half box of brats and sold out in 4 hours. The second day I brought 2 boxes of dogs and 1 box of brats came home with 10 dogs and maybe 2/3 of the brats.
For me that’s a awesome day…..
Anyway just wanted to let you know
Thank you Rob, for writing in and sharing some pictures with us. We all wish you tons of success.
You are already in a prime location by the exit doors but I would get a bigger bolder banner that says: HOT DOGS – COLD DRINKS or something similar. I would also have a smaller banner hanging from the side facing the doors that said, “Premium ALL BEEF Hot Dogs” or one vendor I know has a sign that says, “Premium Black Angus Hot Dogs”.
