The following are questions that people ask me on a daily basis:

1.  How much did your hot dog cart cost?
     Answer:  Go to benscarts.com and he has a price list posted.
2.  I have always wanted to operate a hotdog cart, how did you get into this?

3.  Do you make any money doing this?
     Answer:  Yes
4.  Do you enjoy running a hotdog cart?
     Answer:  It's a lot of work but to me it is fun "work".
5.  What kinda hotdogs do you sell?
      Answer:  All Beef
6.  Why do you charge so much for a hotdog?
      Answer:  The hotdog is Free, you are paying me to stand here and answer your questions.
7.   Why don't you have chille?
      Answer:  My customers don't ask for it and when I tried it only one or two wanted it so it was a big waste and loss for me.
8.  Do you sell boiled peanuts?
     Answer:  Ugg, NO
9.  Do you have to have a license to do this in Georgia?
     Answer:  Yes, every inspector, city, town, county, state are all different but I have a local city license, State Tax ID number, Federal Tax ID number, Serve Safe Certified, Health Department vendor permit, Health Department bi-annual health inspection.
10.  What do you do when there are a lot of other vendors that are selling hotdogs cheaper than you at an event or vendors that are undercutting your prices?
        Answer:  My prices are set and printed and do not change except when I have to raise them to cover food cost increases (I have only raised my prices once since 2009).

These are the questions I hear the most, what are people asking you??????

People's inquisitiveness and intrigue with the cart is one of the things that draws our customers. It brings back "feel good" childhood memories for some, and the entrepreneurial spirit in others. Sometimes they just want to make polite conversation, but they usually ask the same questions. Those same questions are universal - if we had a dollar for every time someone asked us those questions!... oh yeah... we do! more like $5.00! I like your answer for #6 - think I'll use that one if you don't mind! Thanks for the post.

Pepper, feel free to use that answer.  It started many years ago when I was a door to door salesman and people would ask me why they should pay so much for my product when they can get the same thing for 1/10 of my price and I would tell them that they get the product free but I have to make something for all this entertainment that I am providing them.  Good!! Good!!

My favorite question:  customer studys the menu that reads: hotdog $3.75, combo with hotdog, chips & a drink $5.00. And then asks: "how much is a hotdog?"
