What should I sell is one of the first challenges potential vendors face when starting street food vending…
Hot Dogs? Cottage Food?
When I was living in a beat up trailer with fifteen dozen gazillion spoiled kids who wanted to eat every single day, I stumbled onto hot dog vending.
And that saved my life. Like really. We were on food stamps.
Would I start with a hot dog cart, now, if I were in the same situation?
And in video #2 of 365, I dive right in to that question.
Here’s what you’ll find in this video:
- How to get started vending faster, even TODAY!
- Quite literally, if you get to work on it when the sun comes up, you could be selling stuff tonight. No kidding. For real.
- And no, you don’t have to sell your kids’s kidneys like I had to do (I didn’t really do that, by the way).
- You don’t have to go in to gazillions of dollars of debt to buy a hot dog cart, or a massive food truck!
- You can get started in your own Kitchen with stuff you already have, or stuff you can get this morning at the grocery store!
Watch the video! What Should I Sell?
If you don’t have $5000 plus to buy a hot dog cart, what kind of stuff could you make?
- Mini Donuts: start for under $1000
- Lemonade: you can start for under $500, but if you don’t have that…
- Popcorn! You don’t have to have a $5000 kettle to make popcorn. You can start in your own kitchen with a pot on the stove, a WhirlyPop, for under $50, or with a countertop popper, for under $400.
- Baked goods: cookies, cakes, breads.
- There are tons of foods you can make and sell, LEGALLY, right from your own kitchen, without a license, and probably with the equipment and ingredients you already have!
- All of this comes under your state’s Cottage Food Law. Click the link. I’ve compiled, and translated from legalese to regular English, the codes from every freakin’ state!
