These Ladies could have been there for years and established a nice business. If the dog is average then the people really don’t care, it passes for them, the price is right, case closed. Just because you think you have a better idea, a better dog, it still doesn’t guarantee success. I would not compete with these ladies, they may knock your socks off….BillyB
I am in Springfield Ma 3 days a week so far I have eaten at the White Hut 3 days a week.
If you had to wait 5 minutes, maybe they DO sell a couple hundred dogs! They may be selling 8/1 all beef. A good $2.00 dog. I sold $366 worth last saturday in 1 3/4 hours by my self.
This is music to my ears…I’m really looking forward to getting out there. [8D]
How was the dog?
I didn’t have a camera with me, but as I reported the dog was “average”. It was a skinless dog like you get in a 10 pak for about $1.29 at the discount store. It was sold from a tray of hot water. The bun was untoasted and served directly out of the discount plastic bag that it was sold in. This is not a place worth returning to. I usually don’t comment on “average” Roadfood, because I don’t want to hurt a fellow business person, but these ladies do a good enough biz so that if no Roadfooder ever goes there,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,so what.
Noting that you are from Northampton, I was there last weekend and had ice cream at Herrell’s (spelling??) Now, there is a place worth returning to[woot]
How was the dog?
The ladies on lower State Street do a big biz from a small cart, in a parking lot near the court and office buildings. They get $2 for a very average plain dog,,,,,2.50 with chili. When I was there yesterday at about 11:30 I had to wait in line about 5 minutes. The parking lot guy says that they sell “hundreds” of dogs between 11 and 1, and then go home. I don’t see how they do “hundreds” out of a small cart in 120 minutes. I suspect that they do less.
Springfield, Mass……a great location
