Our brand is known for its quality and prestige; if you are already established in the catering and food world and want to expand or if you are looking for a new venture we would highly recommend thinking about a few things before you acquire a hot dog cart/stand.
It is important to consider a new business venture carefully, which is why we have compiled a list of factors that may affect your decision to enter or expand in the catering business.
You should ensure that you are well aware of the area in which you are going to be operating. You should consider the amount of foot traffic, the presence of possible rival food and snack businesses.
It may also be important to pay attention to the trends concerning businesses in the area. For example: what businesses have left the area recently? And how has the area developed over the years?
You should also consider what your premises are like. Is there enough room to operate in the way you want? Is there room to expand? It is important to pay attention to the basic things such as the space around you: is the sidewalk wide enough? Are there parking lots or private areas nearby?
Whilst you may not wish to plunge headfirst into bureaucratic and administrative side of things it is important to understand the permissions you may need.
You need to consider the sort of permission you may be required to have and begin to get your paperwork together. It doesn’t matter how good the hot dogs are if you are not allowed to serve them!
- Finally, it is extremely important that the staff you station at these food carts have an amiable approach in their work. You should not underestimate the impact a smile can have on your business.Staff should be friendly and fun because this type of business requires a ‘light’ attitude.
