Contest: Help Michael Name His Hot Dog Cart Business.

by · 181 comments

Holy smokes! This is the “greenest” cart I’ve ever seen, and I mean that literally.

Picture 7

The first step in the sales process is getting folks to notice you and Michael Lane’s newly finished E-Z Built Hot Dog Cart is guaranteed to stop customers in their tracks.

I think it’s gorgeous! But what should he call it? Here’s Michaels email…

Hey Steve,

Feel free to share the pics… Also have not settled on a name all the way. Could be ” Dawg Waggin’ “  or “Hotdogs “R” Us ” or  “The Green Weenie” “Hot-Doggin”.. I think we need to vote..  Give us an idea what sounds the best…

Thanks again Steve!

Let’s have some fun with this. Instead of voting for one of Michael’s business names, come up with your own. If you change Michael’s mind and convince him your name is better than any of his, I’ll give the winner  one of my products FREE!

Choose from:
HotDogBiz101 Platinum Package
E-Z Built Hot Dog Cart Video and Plans Package
Cash Tracker Bookkeeping Software Activation Code
Dog Sled
Chip Clips (2 pack)

If you were planning on purchasing any of these products between now and Sunday night,  go ahead. If you win the contest I’ll refund your purchase.

The winner will be announced in Monday’s issue.

Enter the contest as many times as you want,  but don’t forget to congratulate Michael on an awesome E-Z Built Hot Dog Cart while you’re at it.

Now let’s commence to namin’. Leave it in the comments below.

If he is in the Boston area it could be, “Green Monster Dogs” Of course, he would have to serve Fenway Franks.
Otherwise, how about, “Fresh Dog”

Hi Michael, NICE cart! I should be through with mine this weekend. Big Mommas’ Hotdog House. With your theme of color, I think you should get a pole with a lantern hanging and call it ,” The Green Lantern”. Not only would it be neat but you would already have a source of light for your evening escapades and you can always add more lanterns… Just an idea. Good luck, Lucette

Mike, also just to let you know. The Dawgs R Us thing won’t work. Seems Toys R US has MAJOR precedence in the “R us” trade name. A friend, Steve Card (yes his actual name) Had a baseball card store and called it Cards R US. 6 Months and $10k later he lost in court. Strange but true.

Michael, Congrats on getting the cart going. As I always say Have Fun! This is an awesome career. You have one very important fan …my oldest son. His favorite color is green and we think that cart rocks!

He suggests you call it “Eating at the Green”

I would suggest “The Jolly Green Hot Dog Machine”

Nice Cart! Always loved the color green myself but never thought to do my Hot dog cart in it. Great eye catching idea!
How about ” Hot Doggin Ala’mode” Great hot dogs and more! And offer a Salsa Verde sauce as a hot dog topping. Tried some of that on a dog before and it was really good! A way to stand out above others on toppings.
Or other options; “Tomatillo Green, hot dog thing”. ” Big green Hot dog steamer”.
Well, What ever name you choose Mike, I am sure your going to pulling in the attention and the green with your new cart! Good luck to you!!! Jimmy. :)
