Foot in the Door!
Well I've done it! Though I've been studying the Hot Dog Cart business for a year, though I've been able to get out ONCE and sling dogs for a Farmer's Market event in association with a hot dog restaurant in the neighborhood, I've not yet been able to open my umbrella on a regular basis for my own business and self. Locations were really causing me problems. Finding them AND meeting the requirements in each municipality locally.
Today I was out pounding the pavement trying to find locations. Tomorrow morning I get to set up shop for a factory. It's a trial, but hey! It's a start! Then I've got another account Monday, a small truck yard. It's not the fabulous foot traffic I hear you guys getting but I am truly excited. Dropped off flyers and business cards at five other companies in the same industrial park today as the Decision Makers weren't in the office. I'm not slinging with the big dogs yet but I'm on my way!
