Regarding your “Customized” Victor Cart— Honestly, do you think you may have taken him out of his “Comfort Zone” in cart design & build?? Most of us seem to be able to do some things well and when we go beyond that, we screw it up.
Are you implying that it’s Jim’s fault? If the manufacturer can’t do – or doesn’t have the experience to do the job, that’s on his/her shoulders to be up front with a customer. I looked at the Victor carts – I looked at nearly every cart manufacturer mentioned on Roadfood. I’m convinced that 75% of hot dog cart manufacturers don’t really know what they’re doing or choose not to do it well – they choose to make a profit instead. A cart is like a car – they all do about the same things but some folks drive a Ford and others drive a Chevy. Some choices are driven by cost, some by dreams, others by need.
I agree with Jim on a major point – a grill/griddle with simmering peppers and onions draws people in. It’s the main reason I bought a Top Dog cart. I love it. It’s my own little restaurant on wheels.
