Make some fast $$$$$$$

No this is not SPAM. LOL A thought occurred to me last night but I don't currently have the time and extra equipment to put it together before thanksgiving., Here is the plan: Many people line up in front of stores every year on black Friday, which is this Friday. Of course they're hoping to land one of the special deals on an item in high demand for Christmas. In this part of the country the overnight temps will be around 30 degrees, or colder, and who knows it may be raining or snowing. So take your hotdog cart and sell them hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee, cinnamon rolls, hot dogs, anything that in their mind will make them warm and comfortable. After you go down the line of one store move on to the next store and the next and finally go back to your first store and start over. I think you'd do quit well between 4:00 AM and store opening time. Now if you play your cards right and give the store management, and maybe the store employee’s freebees you might get a little free TV exposure. Give the TV people free food, and you'll get big time exposure through out the day on every newscast. If you have a stand-alone restaurant just prepare some samples and drive them over to the stores and give them away. Great PR and your cart / restaurant has become a local champion of this Christmas Season.

    Me too. I know I've been one of those people standing in line in the cold and would have welcomed a cup of hot chocolate and a warm sweet roll or may be a buttered biscuit. Go for it.

    If you really want to make a name for yourself, give away the hot chocolate. You'll become instantly famous.
