hot dog vendor courseHot Dogs Saved My Life

It one fell swoop, I lost everything.  I had been hugely successful in the furniture industry and it all came crashing down.  This saved my life and it can yours too.  It can literally transform your entire life before the next mortgage payment or next cart payment or next electric bill is due.

You can learn it all, get started on the right foot, avoid the MISTAKES I made and be on your way in just days.  Can you imagine waking up in two weeks and having a job that you know that is going to bring in $200, $300, $400 THAT DAY!  Well you can and you will if you follow some simple steps that I provide throughout this site.

Here you will find it all, articles, step by step training, links and resources.  You have found the MOST COMPREHENSIVE SITE on the planet about vendors, vending and specifically hot dog carts and operations.

Years of experience and resources crammed inside this little site, just for you.

Your success makes me happy!

 You’ll hear more later, but…

I had a plane, a hundred acre farm, a CXT (the kickbuttest truck ever) and a huge home.  All gone, in just a couple of months, I lost everything.  You are probably thinking; “What, this guy didn’t have savings or a back up plan?”   No I didn’t and yes that was stupid.  I was so busy making money and opening new stores and feeding my ego, I didn’t think it could ever end.

My wife, I and 5 children found ourselves in a 2 bedroom singlewide mobile home.  What a humbling experience that was.  I will share more later but the bottom line is – I found hot dogs and the hot dog cart business and I went to town.

Just 7 weeks after getting my first cart, I had 3 carts, bought and paid for from the earnings of the first cart.  There is no magic here, no special alignment of the stars, it all comes down to a few details and the results will be success!  

No, it’s not for everyone and it does require getting off the couch, but it works and it will make you money.
