I am originally from Chicago area, and have a lot of transplanted Jersey and NY people living around me in the Shenandoah Valley of Va.
We all love hot dogs, and you can fill in the blanks….not much here except Nathan’s at Costco. I feel like that guy in Tennessee who has a recent post.
Some of us are thinking of opening a cart stand, or possibly an inside operation in an existing coffee shop. We have ideas, but I would like to pick you brains some as to what you would have, as far as brands, toppings, for a start up and maybe a "second level" of items for selling, as things progress.
Keep in mind everthing would have to be UPSd in, inventory questions, etc. Also keep in mind we haven’t done this before, but the coffee shop is doing well. We would probably start with some used equipment, etc. but will invest more $ when it gets going.
This is almost as much a mission as a profit center deal.
Thanks in advance!
