Re:Starting the hot dog biz in Miami, Florida, I need advice!
Look for shopping malls that do not have food. Talk to the store owners and get them on your side, then talk to the property owner and convence the owner what a great service you will be for the store's customers. Up sell the idea that your cart will be more customers to the stores in the mall. Point out how your bright colors will attract cars passing by. Thats alway good for a few months free rent. When you meet with the property owner: Dress in your work uniform,have picyures of your cart, have a copy of all licenses, and most important a copy of your liability insurance. This will make you look professional!
