Almost three months into this new world of vending and they take on a huge event. Problem is, this year the event wasn’t huge. Based on all their due diligence, they loaded for bear but
“the bear didn’t show up.”
Professional hot dog vendors know that these things can happen, but some vendors will let a bad day discourage them from continuing.
Not Rainbow! He only took in 25% of his expenses but has kept a positive attitude and WILL SUCCEED.
Hell-o Ben : It’s Rainbow from Mom And Pops Pups in Wichita Ks well we have been operating now for about two and a half months. we are running both of the Big Dog carts and because of the city restrictions being placed on the food vendor here,we have had a slow go of it, but things are getting better. We took a big chance and decided to do our first large event over this last weekend. It was the fourth annual Black Top Nationals, held here each year. Thanks to all the advice that has been freely shared through ( H D V R ) we were spit and polished– And loaded for Bear. Unfortunately the Bear forgot to show up. In the last four years they have had numbers between 128,000 to 134,000 . We figured a customer count of 2.5 to 3.0% with only 8 food vendors for the show. With the economy still upside-down in the aircraft industry here and the hot humid weather, attendance was dismal. There were actually times when we spent one and a half to two hours just setting with nobody on the midway. Our total gross for the show was less then 25% of what it cost to prep for and do the show. NEVER FEAR if this is the worst the world has to throw at us, boy!!! is it in for a ride. We did get some good business contacts out of the deal, and we are far from down and out.
Not many vendors would share publicly their bad days, but Rainbow gave me permission to post his letter here for everyone.
Thank you Rainbow! More pics below. Look at how well done this setup is. Loaded for bear is an understatement. Rainbow and his crew have the right signs, they have two Big Dog hot dog carts and boilers lined up and ready for the overflow.
My heart goes out to them. This could of and should of been a huge event for them.
