First Day Out Mon, 05/27/13 6:22 PM (permalink)
Went out today for the first day. Tried to hit the local cities parade around end time but had a few hiccups so I was running a bit late. Did about 36 dogs and 2 Frito pies in the first hour and 15 minutes. Sold about 8 dogs in the next couple hours and packed up and went home. Got some good feedback. People liked that I offer Fieldroast vegan dogs. I also carry vegan chili and vegan cheese. I sold 3 vegan chili dogs. 
 
My pulled pork topped dog didn't interest many people. I seemed to sell chili dogs and sauerkraut dogs the most. Looking into maybe adding a specialty kraut dog, cream cheese and sauerkraut.
 
Came home with 139 in sales so I'd called that a good first day. Still a learning experience but I had a blast!

      Good job! I think my first time out I made $80 and was excited beyond belief. The next day out when I made $300 I think I left a bit of chili dog in my pants. I suddenly had dreams of living on a yacht and bikini babes feeding me grapes.

          Bobby, My next time out will be during bar rush on thursday. I work full time during the day and can't afford to quit my job do to this full time yet so I have to sling dogs during any off time I have.

            Went out from 10pm-115am last night. Sold 35 dogs. Wasn't great but for my second night out and nobody knowing who I was or what I sold I was happy with that.

              35 dogs, assuming profiting about 2$ each is 70$ profit? That's pretty good for a few hours.
