Let me preface this with what I've always said, if they request you go through corporate, that is usually a "no" and their soft way of blowing you off.  I would reconsider my pitch if I got these responses more often than not.  Remember, you're asking for permission to vend, but your not asking.  YOU'RE OFFERING. Sometimes that's all that has to change to encourage a local store owner to unhesitatingly say "YES".  You're wording is crucial and if it sounds like you're asking, then many times you'll get the, "You'll need to call our corporate or regional offices.  I'm not able to make those decisions.".  If you do a great "pitch" then the person requiring permission of their bosses would say that he/she will call and ask, because they are so sold on the idea. Let me cover this again briefly for those of you who haven't heard my pitch before.  You'll find several examples in the free training, but this will give you the basics.  As you listen or read this, tell me - if you were the manager of your local Goodwill, Tractor Supply, Northern Tool or Whatever Store, which one would you likely give an immediate yes to? Hi, my name is Ben and my wife and family have a small hot dog and catering business.  It's how we make our living.  Could we vend here in front of your store and sell our products to your customers?  I know they'd love it.  We are licensed Statewide and are fully insured.  So what do ya think? Hi, my name is Ben and my wife and family operate a small hot dog can catering business.  We actually use the old style push carts and enjoy helping local businesses by offering a unique and nostalgic service from a real hot dog cart.  We have expanded recently and will be in your area next Tuesday and wanted to see if you'd like us to stop by for an hour or two and set up our hot dog cart?  We are state licensed and insured and your customers are gonna love it.  We don't charge for this service so it's not going to cost you a dime.  Would next Tuesday at around lunch work for ya'll?  Are you pretty busy on Tuesdays?  Or are Friday's better.  I have either day open for lunch. See what I did there?  Which method do you think is going to get me a yes?  One I'm asking for permission, the other way I'm offering them my services for free. Regardless of the method, you're still going to get a no or two.  Some are going to refer you to their bosses, district, regional or even National managers offices.  They may, like the gentleman that emailed me last night, request you submit a proposal.  Personally, I wouldn't do it.  I'd take my "no" and walk away.  But if you feel you should pursue it, then by all means.  Me, I don't - want to take the time to pursue something like this.  Without being face to face, the answer is likely still going to be a no, but if you must... I've put together a rough outline as to how I'd write this up.  You'll find a copy on the blog at LearnHotDogs.com and search the word Goodwill. If you want to make it super duper professional, then make some letterhead with your logo, your license number and hire someone on Elance.com for $25 to do it for you.  Then sign it, send it in - but don't hold your breath.  I wouldn't sit around watching Oprah while I waited either.  Take pitch #2 above and go find some great place to vend today and if the proposal come through, then all the better.  I'll include some additional tips on the blog article so be sure to check that out.

Why So Much Success? Hot dog vendors forever have wanted and wished to expand their menus, but due to the state guidelines in most states we are stuck serving only pre-cooked (hot dogs, sausages) non-potentially hazardous foods.  Two years ago, a friend of mine joined us live on Hot Dog Vendor Radio and shared with us how he transformed his business into a money making machine by adding catering services. Since Pocono Hot Dogs was on last we have spoken much on catering with your hot dog cart, but this show added the voices and experiences of hundreds of hot dog vendors who have begun catering with their hot dog carts over the last two years - myself included. In short, as a caterer you can bypass much of those restrictions on types of food you can serve and while using your hot dog cart you can bring almost anything to a private event, meeting, gathering or other social meet up.  Want to cater a party and serve spaghetti from your cart?   You can do it!  Want to serve bbq and baked beans - you can do it too! This is contrary to my video "Why Just Hot Dogs" and really - it's not.  If you want to operate street side or on public property then the rules still apply. The Pros 1.  Serve about anything you want 2.  Open yourself to do business in venues never considered 3.  Make lots more money and with much less risk  Start Catering With Your Hot Dog Cart Your best bet is to watch the replay of the show below or click play above, but the links and show notes can be found below.  Remember we are on iTunes too and you can subscribe for free from any smart phone or device and never miss a thing. Marketing your new business is easy, especially if you are already vending and have set up social media pages.  Either way, there is no better time than now to begin - so lets look at ways to tell everyone about your new catering options: Facebook, Twitter and any other social media outlet you use.  Some vendors are now using Pinterest and Instagram too. Update your business cards and business name by adding, catering.   Example: Willy's Weenies & Catering Company / Ben's Hot Dogs and Catering Add "We Cater" to your menu board and signs along with a decal for your cart and vehicle too. Use Craigslist.org to let others who may be looking know about your catering services Get on Thumbtack.com and start getting requests immediately!  Many vendors use this for obtaining catering gigs.   Get listed on Foodtrucksin.com or update your existing listing. Free Catering E-book Michael Attias advises and consults with major restaurants worldwide.  He joined our show a while back and offered a free e-book on catering to help vendors out.  It took some digging but I found the old link here so that you can claim your free copy. Don't Forget A Catering Contract Avoid problems later by having your client sign a catering contract.  You'd hate to get done from a catering gig and have the client say, well you were supposed to bring drinks but didn't. No sir, no mam, it says right here - Blah Blah Hot dog and catering company supplies the following: Lasagna and breadsticks (plates and utensils provided by client) So here are two different catering agreements: Shelley's Catering Agreement Copy Duggs Doggs Catering Agreement Copy   (download first then open with drive.google if you don't have MS Word) Out Of The Way Catering Last night a vendor called in about doing catering jobs where there was no electricity present and he needed to be able to power a fridge or freezer.  Jason Brown of Love Hot Dog Co. shared a link where you can get a great deal on those super quiet Honda Generators.
