      Make mine chili, cheese (runny), mustard and onions and are you going to do a chili pie????? I love chili pie.

                                Well we setup on Friday and I have to say it went pretty well. We had decent sales and alot of great customers. Several came back for seconds and we had one guy come back 3 times for the zweigles italian sausage.All in all it was a good day.Then we had thunderstorms all day Saturday so we couldnt set up.

                                  Ohman, some of our best sales days are the rainy ones. We set up a 10X10 EZ-UP sunshade over the cart and conduct business as usual. If you want to keep your customers dry, EZ-UP makes a nice 10X20 sunshade. Check your local Sam's Club or Costco for their sun shades.

                                          Congratulations.....But there is a problem here. I guess this is my first gripe with the Road Food Site. But there is a big injustice here and it needs to be corrected. It's very simple, This Guy opens a Hot Dog Stand and he has to have the Title "Junior Burger" what a slap in the face to the poor guy. My suggestion is a one time only title change for this guy. He can start as "Vienna Sausage" after enough posts he can be a "Hot Dog" even more posts he can become a "Foot Long" then a "Chili Foot Long" then a "Chili Cheese Dog" etc., etc.! I hope I am not alone on this one. Let the powers to be vote yea or neigh?

                                              I admit it's a good idea... It's crossed my mind also in the past. Pick your favorite food item, such as a meat as roadfood uses, hot dog as you suggested or even something mexican (start out as refried beans, work your way to a taco, tostada, dry burrito, wet burrito, etc..)... Good Suggestion!

                                                  Congratulations on your new venture. I don't have a cart yet. I do my business under a 10x10 EZ-UP with a stainless steel grill. May you have a day like my last Thursday. I first ran out of Chili for my Chili Cheese Delight, Then I ran out of Kraut, Then I ran out of Buns, (had 150 along) then as I was tearing down people were buying a dog in napkin for 50ยข each. I just bought a 12v ref. to keep dogs in located in my car. I have a solar battery chgr. so battery wont go dead. All of the problems are being solved as time goes by. I have been in business about 2 months now. Am also looking for a Sat spot.

                                                    Cowboy Bob, I use Igloo 150 quart MaxCold ice chests to store product on site. I first super freeze 2-20 pound unopened bags of ice, stack them in the cooler, and surround the ice with bags of hot dogs. Each cooler holds approximately 400 dogs and keeps the dogs at temperature without refreezing them. Igloo also makes smaller MaxCold chests. We use their products for condiments, soda, and water. Menard's, Sam's Club, and Restaurant Depot has the best prices for these coolers.
