This is a KAREEM Cart (01') that was fully restored, brought to code, and operated during the 09-10 season (KERN COUNTY, just north of Los Angeles County). I am selling this cart along with the BUSINESS. The business includes the FBN (The Great American Frank Co.), the company website and other marketing material, and all accessories to the cart. This is NOT a turn-key operation. YOU MUST COMPLY WITH YOUR LOCAL JURISDICTION'S HEALTH CODE AND/OR SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT BEFORE OPERATING. [Scroll down for pics]
