So ya wanna be a Hot Dog Man (or Woman?) Part 4: Cart/ Truck/Trailer?

OK so you've come this far, you know WHY you want this business, WHERE you want to locate and HOW to comply with the local Board of Health. Now WHAT kind of cart, truck or trailer are you going to aquire? There are many different manufacturers of hot dog carts, trucks and trailers out there-it can be daunting to research them all. Once you've figured out what the Health inspector requires, you can move on to acquiring a hot dog cart, truck or trailer. There are many varieties and manufacturers and prices range from a couple of thousand dollars to over $200,000 for a totally decked out mobile kitchen. You'll need to decide what will suit your site, your tolerance for the elements and your budget. If you're buying new, try to deal with a company geographically nearby-it makes no sense to order a hot dog cart or truck from a company in Sacremento if you live in Philadelphia! There are always good values to be found in used equipment too, try to find someone selling hot dog equipment used (there's a lot of good stuff out there) and you'll get more bang for your buck.
