Re:"Sundries" etc on cart.
I will do “Little League Sports” next year. I will try wearing and selling Fedoras, Baseball Caps, Sunglasses whatever makes me $.
I've ordered some cheap wallets. I will place a redeemable coupon for a free hot dog inside of it. I will throw them around the sports park.
I just started Walgreen's parking lot last Monday. For me, I think I did great this week. As soon as I receive the wallets, I will throw them around downtown a couple of blocks from Walgreen with the same coupon.
The lucky person will be sure to brag to someone, maybe several people about their good fortune. This is cheaper advertisement and much better than the newspaper ads. Don't ya think?
This isn't my idea. It came from one of the Hot Dog Guru's books. The book and CD's came with my used cart that I bought in August. I can't wait to try all of this stuff. I'm confident now that I can sling a dog with a heated bun. Lots of ideas that I will try. If I had a Mom and Pop store I'd try to sell anything I could fit in it to sell. Why not?
Here's something I haven't read anywhere yet. Of course I haven't read everything and probably never will, right?
For heating buns I have a spray bottle of water that I spray lightly on a bun and wrap it up in foil wrappers. I put a half dozen or so in my BBQ grill up at the top on the side where the burner is turned off. I also put a few in my steam pan on top of the dogs sprayed with water and wrapped in foil also. I can do this during the times I'm not busy. It's necessary now because of the cooler weather.
I like the foil best because it keeps the dogs warmer if a customer is carrying it back to the car. I can also use the foil for putting onions in a tiny bit of oil on the BBQ grill for the grilling onion aroma.
