Do you plan to strictly sell “veggie dogs?” Or will you also be selling traditional all-beef dogs as well?
I ask because my teenage daughter is a vegetarian (far less committed than a “vegan”) and she’s VERY PICKY about how her food is prepared. If you’re boiling/steaming meat and vegetarian hot dogs together, vegetarians and vegans will BOTH see the common water (even if it’s just steam) as “contaminating” the veggie dogs and even the buns. You might find that you need to have an entirely separate steam table for the veggie dogs and their buns.
If you’re selling “veggie dogs” exclusively, I would expect that you would need a location close to a school or other place where a younger crowd congregates as it seems that they are more likely your target customer base.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
