RE: Winter time hot dog cart sales
Well its been an easy winter as far as clothing goes. since jan I haven't worn my long johns, A mild one. In the spring I'm going to spiff up my old stand in trailer and sell it off. My sales are about the same every week lately. Can't wait till spring when sales should increase. My current trailer is a 8.5x20, A lot of room inside, BUT! I'm thinking of an 8.5x30 for next year. It will have a 10ft section with an entrance door and an exit and with condiments in this area for self service and a counter seperating me from customers and a large sign stating "NO Loitering", Now my customers are dressed for winter and all arrive in a car. I went over my 300 minutes for my cell phone so, I upped it to 600 minutes for call aheads. I average about 10 to 20 a day. I encourage them to call ahead. I am now doing 2 doz "average" egg sandwiches a day now. $2 plain egg and cheese to $2.50 for a meat and egg and ch. I cook them in cooking rings. and toast their buns on grill. Cook your bacon ahead of time. then refridgerate them and nuke them for 10 sec. or throw them on warm spot on grill. wala!
I do frozen sausage pattys in Nuker for 30 sec. then grill them while eggs are cooking. Some truckers say when they leave SC or Boston, all they think about is one of my sanwhiches. And I ain't lying.
Well in 2 weeks I'm going to offer a tunafish Sand. on a crustini round bun for $3.00 w/lettuce, I'm now doing chicken tenders $1.25 ea. PS I have 4 refridg. units and 1 Freezer in my trailer, but am soon replacing 2 with a window merchandiser for viewable beverage sales. cost about $1,200 for 19cf True unit.
Later CBB in PA
