Hi, this board is awesome. I have been in the restaurant business for ever and wish I new about yall a long time ago. My past has been in pizza, wings, sauteed dishes ect...

I hope I can help out some of you guys in some way as I will be asking questions too.

I just sold my Pizza shop, and am looking into getting into the vending biz in Nashville. Any hotdog pros here wnat to help a brother out?

My main questions have to do with getting a good location, and finding a comissary. I already have a cart, vendor, yada yada...now I need to make some money...

So who's the hotdog Guru in these parts?

EXCELLENT board guys and gals, I will see ya around!

Lemme know where you set up shop. I'll be your first paying customer.
Where will you get your product?

Are you in Nashville? Any ideas of a good location. I had Fiddle and steel a while back, that was a goldmine!

I get my product "Salehms" from a vendor in Buffalo, these dogs are awesome!

I need to find a sweet location tho...

Well, I read just aboout every post on here that has to do with hotdogs.

I am really interested in finding a high traffic spot in Nashville, something permenant. I set up at Titan games and do well, but would love a M-F location. Any ideas?

Would the city let you set up shop down on lower Broadway, and catch all the tourists?
