That sucks. I did pretty good my first two weeks and then it died. I tried sticking with it, but ultimately found another spot. And always call in advance for special events, you never know what vendors will be there. We got invited to one and there were 3 other hot dog vendors. I passed and made a more money on a catering job.
And I trust no one…not even family. Caught my helper drinking 3 or 4 cokes a day, when she was only allowed water (my niece and we don’t allow her to have caffeine, makes her hard to be around). She was doing it when she was washing dishes and then hiding the cans in the recycle bin. I made her do a full inventory before we started and then after. Needless to say, she stopped taking cokes. Hard for the inventory sheet to lie.
