Title: Oh hey forgot, Happy New Year, Solstice! Pagan rituals....
Post by: AZHotdog.com on January 12, 2018, 02:43:20 AM
Just kidding about the pagan part....

To each of you a very happy New Year which means winter, the period of privation is half way over and it's all looking sunny from here. At least is solar calendar terms on the Northern hemisphere. Good news to most of you who have been half freezing to death.

Even here in the low desert I saw people, real humans have to put on jackets and coats and shiver in 57 degree temps. You read that right, +57F not -57. That's all it takes us to shiver here.

And like all of us I suspect, all of our businesses kinda go into hibernation for the holiday season. I'm happy for the chance to do all the maintenance and get things all set for spring which is our summer.

So what are you guys gonna do new this year? Got new goals and objectives?

For us we're fortunate to be legally able to do more than just hot dogs so at this point we have a regular carnival menu. We spent pretty heavy on some new equipment and we're targeting big game.

I re-learned an old rule since we teamed up with our guy Dean, in this new year, try to kill them with condiments. Roll out the red carpet for folks. This is the year where we destroy the "dollar menu" in terms of value and service.

Anyways, all the best to you guys, keep the news coming.

   Happy New Year to you too. No  big change to my menu yet. I have a box truck from my flea market days that I pull my cart with. As soon as the weather allows I'm turning that into a pantry and cold storage. My plan is to do all my prep in the truck rather than on the cart. I have an 8000 watt inverter that will run a refrigerator and coffee pot plus anything else I need. Not turning it into a food truck just a better storage system than I have now. My plan for next season is to try to not run out of anything.

Blue Pig......

You are onto something that I think is so huge that I'm not even talking about it yet. The advantages are so huge that they run off the charts.

You just said the crucial two words and I'm not gonna repeat them.

It's just the perfect excuse to call you a "pig in a blanket".

Just every now and then I don't give away all our secrets. Just every now and then I give us a lead on the competition. Wait a couple years and then tell them how we did it.

I think I see right where you are going with this one. I'm right in there with you.

Thanks man every now and then I get an idea then start thinking, that's too far left field it won't work.  It's nice to hear I'm not alone on this limb. Like I said I used to be a picker still am to a degree so most of the outfit will be from my pickining resources. So it should go together cheap cheap.
