Hot Dog Cart business.
The biggest challenge to overcome in terms of starting a hot dog vending business is to secure a vendor's permit in your local community. However, even if a vendor's permit cannot be obtained, you can still operate a hot dog cart on privately-owned property and cater to functions such as flea markets, auction sales, sporting events, and fairs. Currently new hot dog vending carts are retailing in the range of $4,000 to $8,000 each, depending on the features. However, as a method to reduce business start-up costs, consider purchasing a secondhand hot dog vending cart, as they are typically half the cost of a new one. This is a terrific business to operate on a full- or part-time basis, and providing you can secure a good location or local events to cater to, hot dog vendors regularly earn $4,000 per month and more.
