Curbside: Thanks for the ideas. Yes, I have seen the Apollo website before. Nice carts but like you said, pricey. I have Googled my head off looking for a manufacturer in South Florida and have come up with nothing. Gold Medal makes a propane popper.
Dr.BBQ: Yeah, Florida is a pain with having to have a commissary. Fortunately, I have friends who own a restaurant who are willing to be my commissary. Key West is especially a pain because the cart has to conform to historical guidelines. I’d have to have the cart approved by a committee in charge of historical architectural review. I am thinking popcorn because there is a guy who does popcorn at our nightly sunset celebration and does really well with it. My license allows me to operate on Duval St which is mobbed with cruise ship passengers daily. Popcorn also seems like a relatively easy thing to do with a high markup.
Thanks again for the advice! Keep it coming! [:D]
