Robert see quick success.
After getting some cash together, about $1600, Robert decided to get into the hot dog vending business. His experience led him to research well and so he did. He found www.BensCarts.com and my blog and started his research.
He found a great used cart, bought some stuff from BensCarts to bring it into compliance and had his first day today. $200 on his first day! Hot dogs for $2.75 and a dollar more for the Carolina Cowboy. Wanna know what that is?
In one pan, Robert puts in some canola oil then he slices up some onions so that they are long and stringy. He cooks those down so that they are good and soft and partially caramelized. He then adds bacon which he buys at SamsClub that is already precooked. He places the bacon in a steam pan with the false bottoms and no water and lets the heat warm up the bacon.
To fix the dog, Robert takes a steamed bun adds a 1/8 Nathans all beef dog, lays two pieces of bacon alongside the dog and then covers it all in onions. He then takes Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce and tops. His first day out and he was getting repeats.
Robert is in North Carolina, he is set up at one of the spots I talk about in my course, an auto salvage parts yard. Today he called to let me know just how much fun he had and all about his first day.
Thanks for sharing Robert!
