Who is slinging hot dogs through the winter?


Hey Slingers!

The weather is getting cooler but that’s not necessarily a reason to put the hot dog cart away. If you can get outside you just might sell more hot dogs in January than you will in August.

The truth is that hot food sells better when it’s nippy out. All you have to do is dress for the weather and you can make really great money all winter long if you want to.

Of course you don’t want to  be outside in a blizzard but most winter days are pretty tolerable if you come prepared.

The number one thing you need to take care of is your feet and your ears. They are the parts of the body most susceptible to the cold.

Get some good boots. Buy them one size too large and wear layers of socks. This will keep your tootsies toasty all day!

I hate hats so earmuffs are usually my first choice of head protection.

And don’t forget about your cart. Water lines can freeze and burst overnight if not taken care of. Be sure to drain all your water, especially from your water heater. Blow the lines out with compressed air and store your cart indoors when you’re not using it.

If you don’t want to drain the water every day you can cover your cart with blankets and put a 100 watt utility light inside to help keep everything above freezing temp.

How about you? Do you have any cold weather vending tips? Let’s share them in the comments below!


P.S. If you’re thinking about getting started in the hot dog biz don’t wait for warmer weather. Get started now! You’ll get a jump on the competition and you can start booking private gigs now. Go for it, and let me know if I can help you in any way.
