Let’s stipulate for the record that the majority of Americans love hot dogs.
According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Americans munch down over 20 billion hot dogs each year. On the Fourth of July alone we manage to eat 155 million hot dogs, and that includes all the hot dog eating contests.
Now imagine if you could tap into a fraction of all those hot dog loving customers. The good news is that you can, with Hot Dog on a Stick! You might be surprised at how easy it is to start this type of business.
Start With the Location
Deciding to purchase the best hot dog franchise goes along with picking the perfect location for your new business. The first thing to consider is whether there are already any Hot Dog on a Stick franchises up and running. You won’t have a problem spotting them because they’ll be at local mall food courts or nearby theater venues.
If there are franchises in your neighborhood, then you might consider traveling out of your immediate comfort zone. You want convenient access to your store, but you don’t want to compete with established franchises.
