Dude, that is awesome. That is actually very encouraging. I am a Yankee transplant as well, although I've been down here for over a decade.

I am working on doing a Sabreet style stand here in Bowling Green, KY and your article is a HUGE boost of confidence that this can be done.

Good luck.

Congratulations, Chris! If your dogs are as good-looking as you are, I'll take half a dozen to go!

But mayonnaise on a hot dog. Bleah.

Congratulations of your fifteen minutes of fame! Laminate and frame the entire front page(story & picture) and display it at your cart. There's nothing better than free newspaper advestising.

Dogs on Wheels,
Good for you. But give 'em what they want. A little NY influence is good, but I'm a Jerseyan, and after having my first slaw dog I've even become a bit of a convert. Well, at least once every 10th dog. It's the chili with the slaw where I've yet to be won over.

But if you do go the slaw route, a really good homemade would be best. Again, congrats on the business boost that article should bring. And thanks for sharing. These threads need more Hot Dog info from around the country.

Chris,
My congratulations from 94 miles southwest of you. I'll just have to motor up one sunny day and have one.
Thanks for reporting your article, and here's hoping it makes your business prosper beyond your wildest dreams.

I notice from the review you are going to be serving veggie dogs. Have you found a good veggie dog? I'm looking to cut calories and I really like hot dogs.
Thanks
