Well first, to Doggy. I didn’t make any mistakes. I think an authentic Sabrett cart could go over really well here. There is nothing than I hate worse is seeing a cart in downtown dallas selling short fat dogs from the grocery store.
Second, I am a native Texan.
Communities around DFW simply won’t allow street carts. There are only 9 permits granted to the downtown Dallas area and the waiting list is forever. Within 50 miles of where I live are communities that seem to adopt the “No trash” rule. That is to say they equate hot dog vendors with massage parlors.
When you talk to city councils, they claim that physical walk in restaurants pay taxes, have to pay for their buildings, parking etc and carts can get the same benefits without spending a dime. This is why most of them disallow them.
Anyway, if it should change around here, I just might buy a new cart and try it out.
