No stories, articles or unusual incidents to report on day 4. Got several customers from news article. Sales total- $78.50. Didn’t seem like I did that much. Maybe getting a little more comfortable.
Tomorrow I will post my final wrap up with observations from a rookie’s first week. My first church league was to be tonite but canceled due to wet field.
How many dogs are you selling each day at your current location? When I first started, I tried to sell 30+ dogs at any one location. How much are you charging per dog? Do you have combo meals? It’s all about maximizing your profits. I changed my menu and the prices and it really helped the bottom line. I added home made lemonade and nachos to my cart and that also boosted my profits. At my new location, I am selling 55-65 dogs per day. Than is almost double my other locations. You have to keep improving your menu and locations. My sales are about $200-$250 per day now. That is for a 3 1/2 hour day!
Keep scoping out new spots. Look for good traffic and nice place to put your cart. I work with my brother and he takes over my old spot when I move to a new one. That way I keep the customer base I built at the last spot. I just keep leapfrogging locations to better and better ones.
