Survived a Year
Tue, 09/5/06 10:12 PM
Bought a long standing (31 years) Hot Dog Stand, The Wiener and Still Champion a little over a year ago and I'm glad to report that I am still here.
I haven't owned my own biz before so it was quite a learning experience.
The previous owner didn't do much to help the stands rep using cheap dogs when he ran out of Vienna and adding Indian Food to the Menu. Indian Food at a hot dog stand?????
Took the Indian food off the menu, made sure I had plenty of all beef natural casing hotdogs, switched to real fresh cut, double cooked fries and added freshly made corndogs to the menu.
Business has doubled and we are getting good word of mouth.
Looking forward to another year.
