Getting the agreement. For free.
Hey Slingers, both current and future!
Of all the emails that I get, two questions seem to come up the most.
1. How do I get a commissary?
2. How do I get a location?
Over the years I bet I have sent out the following answer to several hundred individuals, but I don’t believe I have ever shared it in an article. Well, today’s the day! And I have good news.
This Hot Dog Profits Technique will get both commissaries and locations RENT FREE.
A commissary is nothing more than a health department approved kitchen. All you need is a letter to show the inspector that says the facility agrees to let you use their kitchen.
Here’s how to get that commissary letter, or permission to set up on that piece of property that you’ve had your eye on.
If you approach a local business and just ask to set up there, or if you can use their kitchen as a commissary, what’s in it for them? Not much. Even if you offer to pay them rent, the tiny additional income doesn’t make it worth it.
The whole key is to remember everyone’s favorite radio station, wii fm (what’s in it for me?)
What does every business want? MORE CUSTOMERS!!!
What do they have to do to get more customers?
They have to advertise and that’s expensive!
You just have to think about it a little differently – from their perspective. What’s in it for them?
Don’t even talk about rent, talk about how you happen to have advertising space available on your cart and promotional materials…
On the fliers you distribute, on the rear window of your tow vehicle, and on the menus that your customers will post on bulletin boards in their break rooms at work – all over town!
Tell them that thousands of people each month will see it and ask them how much that kind of exposure would cost them in traditional advertising? Thousands.
And you’ll do all this for them FOR FREE in exchange for letting you set up there or for giving you a commissary letter.
That’s the winning pitch.
