Re:What do you think of this name and concept - Devil Dogs?
Hey marinemom, I have just retired from the Marines and personally I think that is a great idea, fact is I started my hot dog business at Camp Pendleton in 07 and my business is named Devil Dawgs Hot Dogs. The name Devil Dogs was already taken by a shop in Chicago. I offer discounts for military and really enjoy making donations to several different veteran associations. I had my own logo drew by a young artist and it has a dawg eating a dawg. I would really caution you about using Marine Corps logo and pictures unless you are directly affiliated with and supported by USMC and there is legal matters that you will run into. The draw back to being named Devil Dawgs is a lot of people think it is associated with the devil not the Marines. And you always have the people that still think that we Marines are just a bunch of brain washed baby killers and will not want to support you.
I would suggest getting a different theme for you cart, and finding yourself a great location with a lot of foot traffic if you want to be able to support yourself with a hot dog cart.
But no matter what the name is, or where you are set up, if you are not selling quality products with great customer service you will not be able to make it.
