Re: Looking for help in Phoenix, AZ
can't blame giving a bump to another quality local vendow though, right?
Foodbme, you know or perhaps remember how we got our start and that was Old Pete, a Phoenix dogger of renown. He used to have one of those prime spots at the courthouse and downtown and besides Mark of Hot Dog University that taught us how to do the awesome Chicago Style, Old Pete taught us the ETHICS of the business and the rules are so:
1. There are the nice guys and the meanies. The meanies will try to get up by tearing us down. The nice guys realize that we are all in this together.
2. Never pass up a chance to help out a nice guy. They need ice, they need somebody to watch things if they have to run and take leak, you always do that because when you need help you need a nice guy.
3. NEVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO ANY OTHER VENDOR. Do what you do to the best of your ability and don't worry about the other guy. Because your successful competitor is your lead.
4. Never forget that we aren't just serving food, we provide RELATIONSHIPS. Ever notice that the hot dogger is everybody's friend? Ever see when how we ask how they are doing, we get their live's story? HELLO SIR HOW YOU DOIN TODAY? Well I'll tell ya hot dog man, my wife hates me, the kids are all complaining, I got a world of shizz to deal with and it's never looked worse.
Well my friend have a hot dog and a cool drink and at least for now life is close to perfect. Here, sink your teeth into this, this is good.
They aren't just coming for the food, they can get food from Taco Bell or anyplace. They are coming to us because everybody needs a friend. And a hot dogger is supposed to be everybody's friend.
Never forget that and you will do well. Old Pete said so.
