Although I don't agree with his figures for getting started, this ten year plus vendors shares more than most about his operations.
There is a lesson in here for us; I have always said that $2.00 for a hot dog is a great price, but this vendor is selling hot dogs for .75 cents and still doubling his money. He has found his niche market and has loyal fans due to his conversation and inexpensive menu. He states startup costs of about $5,000 which for him may be the case, but certainly not for everyone. As I have pointed out it previous stories, vendors often exaggerate the costs to get started to dissuade others from becoming competition.
Either way, it's a good article about a fellow vendor who has enjoyed more than a decade of successful operations.
