From: Steve Schaible, founder of King Weenie Chicago Style Hot Dogs, Daddy-O's Street Eats, Frank and Chips Hot Dogs -St. Louis
I was between a rock and a hard place...and the rock was winning.
A few years ago, I was working in an auto parts factory, hating life, and busting my tail for the boss so he could take his family to Europe, Mexico, or the Caribbean a few times a year. Even worse, the auto industry was in a slump. We could see layoffs coming and I wasn't sure if I would have a job from one week to the next.
Is your ability to earn money resting entirely in someone else's hands?
Mine was. I don't know about you, but I felt the uncertainty in my gut every single day.
Let me tell you how I took control...
One day I stopped at a hot dog cart for a quick lunch. I struck up a conversation with the owner and found out that he made a full time living working only 9 months a year.
Wow! As soon as I got home I started doing some research.
What I found out about the hot dog cart business blew me away...
Getting into this business can totally transform your finances and your lifestyle. And this is one fast business to start up. You can be living your new life, enjoying a dramatic increase in your income in just a couple of weeks from today!
Most days you can make anywhere from $200 to $500 or more just working the lunch crowd. If you use the "BIG SECRET" (more on that in a minute), you have the potential to multiply your sales.
That's $6000 to $10,000 a month with just one cart! I can show you all the tricks.
Some hot dog vendors only work big special events such as fairs, festivals, and sporting events. The pace is not quite as relaxed, "slingers" make anywhere from $1500 to $3000 or more in a single day.
I will show you all the specialized secrets of selling hotdogs at these events.
According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, many hot dog cart operators make more than $100,000 a year!
Hotdog cart operators don't work as much as most people, but their hourly pay is significantly higher. If you have the right location and you are willing to work, you will make money from day one, in fact probably more money than you are making now.
I decided right then and there to start my own hot dog vending business. I vowed that from that point on I would never be entirely dependent on someone else for my livelihood.
Here's the short version of my story...
I started out with one mobile cart in a strip mall parking lot rent free (I'll tell you how to get sites rent free!). I only worked the lunch shift, 11 am to 2 pm.
My start up costs were less than $500.
I made money my very first day - and so can you!
Word spread about my little hot dog stand, and it became so popular that we created traffic jams in the parking lot! Within six months I was able to build a permanent hot dog stand - for less than $1500. I'll show you how, so you can do it too.
By the way, this part is optional. You certainly don't have to have a permanent location to be successful. You can just keep things simple, stick with a single hot dog cart and make fantastic money.
In fact, there are pros and cons to each method. You'll learn how to do it either way in this course.
That's my first cart on the right. I built it myself and if you want to build one too the plans and videos are included in your Hot Dog Profits Premium training. If you're thinking of buying a used hot dog cart, these videos will help you fix it up.
I didn't start out planning to build a permanent stand, it just kind of evolved as I went along...
Notice the drive thru window in the photo on the right. Rain? Sun? Who cares!
"Six Chicago style with chips and sodas - coming up!"
That's my Mom helping out.
The good news is - you have two great ways you can go. I'll let you in on all the tricks and secrets of both carts and stands. In fact, there are pros and cons to each method.
By the way, I stumbled upon the incredibly fast, easy and low cost way to build a permanent hot dog stand by pure accident. I never would have figured it out on my own.
But I want to give you access to this knowledge today. This is information you won't find anywhere else.
In a short time I had five unsolicited offers to buy my business.
I loved selling hot dogs and I loved my newfound freedom even more, so I had no intention of selling - until I got an offer so good I'd have been crazy not to take it.
The timing was right for a mini retirement, and I sold out to some really nice folks who are happily running King Weenie as a family business to this day.
I'm spilling my guts...
I'm going to show you exactly how I built three successful hot dog vending businesses, and how you can do it too. With the release of this course it's finally possible to get started the easy way, step by detailed step, while avoiding the many mistakes I made.
You don't have to learn the hard way.
I'll tell you all the insider tips, tricks, and secrets that can mean the difference between success and failure - secrets that you may never discover on your own.
I want to give you all of that knowledge and more, so that you have every cash generating tool you need before you put up your umbrella for the first time.
Here are just some of the things you'll learn in my Hot Dog Profits Premium Training:
- How to get started with very little money. Under $500 in some cases!
- How to comply with health department regulations.
- How to cook the best hot dogs around and build a raving fan base
- How to set up your business legal structure, keep your books, pay your taxes.
- Where to buy your food and supplies.
- How to build a professional grade hot dog cart for less than $800 using hardware store parts.
- How to set up a permanent Hot Dog Stand for less than $1500.
- How to advertise.
- How to get free umbrellas, signs, marketing materials, etc.
- and much, much more. Including (drum roll please)...
My Biggest Secret
I obviously can't tell you here, but there is ONE thing that you can do to explode the profits from your hotdog cart. It's so simple that I can't believe more vendors don't do this.
It's actually ten times easier than selling hot dogs, which is about as easy as it gets.
I know for a fact that you've seen it in action. I'm willing to bet that you have fallen under the spell of this big secret over and over again, causing you to spend hundreds of dollars that you had no intention of spending...
You just don't realize what's been happening, right under your nose.
This one technique can make all the difference - and a TON of money...
Using the the big secret at your hot dog cart could double or triple your sales.
I'm laying everything out on the table, no holding back. I want to teach you everything I know about starting and operating your own fun, exciting, money making hot dog cart business.
You can benefit from my experience and expertise. You don't have to learn the hard way. It's all right here...the easy way.

Hot Dog Profits Premium Reviews
Listen to what our members are saying about the Hot Dog Profits Premium Training...
"Hi Steve. When I decided to start up a small business selling hot dogs I started searching the internet and found your site. I could not believe the price that was quoted for all the information that you had listed. I thought to my self, "I have been fooled before but this does sound pretty legit". From the moment I joined and became a member I knew that I could do this. Everything is all here for me, I don't have to figure it all out. Just got the heath department pre opening inspection and will be setting up my cart in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. So thank you Steve for Hot dog Profits Premium. I don't think I would have made it if I hadn't become a member."
-Gladys, Riverside Hot Dogs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"Like most, I'm skeptical of most things and that was true of Steve and HDP at first. I stumbled upon his Web site after endless disappointment of $4-$8k carts that got crappy reviews or just looked too "used" for my liking. I ran with Hot Dog Profits Premium and it does not disappoint. One thing I remember reading before signing up with HDP is that Steve answers his emails. I thought "ya right". Well I'm here to say he does just that. Steve's been awesome in all aspects and although I don't know him personally, he seems like your average guy who really wants to do nothing more than help people succeed. In my book, that's very rare these days. So to you Steve, thank you. For all those wondering if HDP Premium is legit...IT IS! I built my cart to Steve's specs and videos (very, very simple) and must say, I'm very pleased. My local health department was blown away with the plans and list and could not believe I built it. Passed with flying colors. If you want to be a slinger, get on this, it won't disappoint and you CAN'T screw it up if building your own cart, watch the videos."
-Bryan Wilson, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"Steve has eminence knowledge in this field and has helped our business get up and running smoothly! We here at Rawkin Dawg have gained several very high paying gigs from referrals, and scored some great locations! Thanks Steve!"
-Chris Padgett, Rawkin Dawg, Tampa/St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Florida, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
The whole package is so helpful, it's a must if you're thinking about slinging hot dogs. I still read the books. The Cash Tracker software is a must. I'm a retired police officer. I sell hotdogs and sausages four days a week, three hours a day. It's a blast. Highly recommend this program!
-Joe, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"When I decided to try and sell hotdogs, I researched everywhere. I even went on line and that's where I found Hot Dog Profits Premium. My husband told me if I was serious then I should buy the whole package Steve was offering. I can say it was worth every penny! The membership gives you valuable information from videos to books and personal help whenever you have questions, everything a dog slinger needs to know to become a success and more. I am going on my fifth year selling my dogs, and I don't think I would have had the confidence without the help of Hot Dog Profits Premium. So my advice is if you want to have fun and meet a lot of nice people, start by becoming a Member at Hot Dog Profits Premium and learn the best way to become a success. Good luck to all you Dog slingers and God bless."
-Marge Rivera, The Twisted Dawg, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"Steve I was working all weekend at the Arnold Days Festival. It was wonderful. I really enjoyed working my Hot Dog Cart did very well. I did the Chrystal Days also it was very successful too.

-Brenda Ramsey, Mad Dog's Hot Dogs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"Hi Steve, my wife and I just had our first really big day at $900 in sales, not bad for a Southwestern Indiana hot dog cart. I used the videos and plans in Hot Dog Profits Premium to build my cart. Cart looks great and I get a lot of compliments on it. I love hearing other slingers ideas of what works and what doesn't. Happy Days ahead!"
-Kent, River City Dawgs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"I love hot dogs premium for its newsletters and pics of other people's carts because I just started building mine. I love cash tracker.....put it this way.....there is nothing I don't love about it. I also love the fact that Steve is a "real" person. He actually answers his own phone, responds to texts and emails himself. You are a class act Steve. Dare to Soar!
-Mark and Garrett, Little G's Hot Dogs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Members
"I'm doing an auction gig 4 times a week. My grandaughter comes and helps me on Friday and Sat nights cause I get pretty busy on Sat when the guns are sold. If I wouldn't have came across your site I might still be in my chair wondering where to start. U r so awesome. Good to see you out there slinging those dawgz Steve!"
-Debbie A., Nuttin' But Dawgz, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
“Steve, Since my husband and I have been premium members we have learned alot. We have increased our business from $25.00 a day to over $300.00 in sales everyday, we are talking maybe 5 hrs. at the most, not bad. Thanks a lot!”
-Doris & Billy, Ma & Pa Hotdogs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Members
"I guess I’m not as dumb as I look. After 90+ weeks of unemployment and no prospects for a real job I started to panic. But then my “Yankee Ingenuity” kicked in and I used my last 4 unemployment checks to build my own hot dog cart. Steve at HotDogProfitsPremium.com was instrumental in helping launch my fledgling business. My cart paid for itself in one weekend and 5 years later I not only have a job I have a legacy that I’ll be passing on to my grandsons soon. My only regret is I wish I would have done this at 20 instead of 50."
-Bill Humphreys, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"Thanks Steve, I really love the Premium membership. You have taught me a lot. Thanks to you I am very successful and because I used all your advice and started my hot dog with all your recommendations, I now have a great little business."

And just as you said many people took my flyers and cards with them. Even had two people tell me that they were the best hot dogzz they had ever had. Not bad for the 1st time cooking them. LOL. But seriously, thanks for all of your help Steve. The future of SGTDzz Hot Dogzz is looking much brighter now and I owe it to you and Hot Dog Profits Premium!"

"Hi Steve, I just wanted to say thank you for the service that you're providing for entrepreneurs. All of the information contained there is very, very valuable. I chose to do a brick-and-mortar type of business versus a hotdog cart. I opened the restaurant April 17. We had a fantastic day and made $2700 the first day. I won't go into the numbers but to say the least we have been doing very very well."
-Larry Hall, Hot Rod Dogz, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"People if you are running a cart and don’t jump on this you're crazy. If you are new to to the biz THESE ARE the main tools. Even if your an old timer there is plenty of info don’t wait. I will make sure everyone knows about this, really they need this. The software and the 101 tax tips alone are worth the price."
-Peter Schumate, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member

"In 2009 I ventured to open a restaurant. Then I came across hotdogprofits.com. The resources provided by Steve were exactly what I was looking for; easy to follow, do it yourself step by step instructions. Their services put a stop to my run around on the web by providing EVERYTHING that I needed to begin my business, Zay Zay’s Catering and More. What I most like about hotdogprofits.com is the direct contact. Steve, the owner, provided me with his direct cell number and email. He has never failed to get back to me right away with answers to my questions. Zay Zay’s has been open for business since April! Our last gig was two hours and cut a check for $986.00! I’m finally living my dream and I owe the takeoff to you Steve. I’ll never be able to thank you enough! I would highly recommend hotdogprofitspremium.com to anyone considering a food business.

A lot of people promise you the moon to get you to join and pay them for really nothing, I feel that I have gotten a lot more then what I paid for. I also enjoy his comments and short stories about several topics concerning the business. I feel his knowledge and experience has helped me to succeed. I highly recommend his program to anyone wanting to start off on the right foot and have a better chance for success."

The hot dog profits premium package gave me all of the tools that I needed to get up and running, and put me on the fast track to success. The web site was very easy to set up, and looked very professional from the beginning. The video tutorials are priceless! If you are considering getting into the hot dogs business, this is the place to start."

"Hi Steve, I really would like to thank you and your team at Hot Dog Profits Premium. Without your help and advice I would not have had the courage to open my hot dog stand! You let me know that anything is possible with hot dogs and you were right. I have converted an espresso stand to a hot dog stand and people love it. The exciting part is that I got so busy that I hired someone to help me! Not even opened a month!! People love my little stand and have told me they are happy I'm here. So, a big THANKS to you and all of your team!!! Trust me, I will be calling for more of your advice!"

“I had a hotdog cart back in 2007, but had a heart attack with open heart quad bypass. Needless to say I had to sell my cart. I am now 83 years old and your program has inspired me to build another cart. Thanks to you and your plans it will be done soon, and I will be out there slinging again, because I sure have missed it all these years. Many thanks to you!
-Robert J Edwards, Hawg Heaven Hotdogs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
“Hi Steve - I cant believe the incredible amount of info and tips in the Premium members site. Although I wound up purchasing a used cart (price was too low to pass up) I used your plans and helpful tips from other slingers to make modifications and sold my cart for a 700.00 profit. Now I am in the planning stage of building a unit that will attach to the back bumper so no trailer is needed. I could have never accomplished any of this without your help.”
-James Fisher, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
“I love the education you provide, and how you keep it entertaining at the same time. We seem to have a similar sense of humor. Along with that, the fact that all the lessons and online materials allow for feedback is helpful for getting other perspectives. It increases the amount of information substantially. Thanks for everythingthat you do.”
-Randall Austin, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"I like the membership because at any point I can go back in and look something up. Or I could even build a few different stands. It's up to date with technology. Videos on the web is the way to go. I can bring my laptop out into the garage to watch the videos as I work."
-Jessica age 24, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"When I signed up for the Premium Membership, I didn’t realize what a benefit it would turn out to be. The articles, positive information, tips on being a slinger and answers to all questions has been a big benefit in getting the business going and making it work. Premium is certainly worth it. Great job Steve."
-Phil Bartlett, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"I have been a Premium Member for quite a while, and have followed Steve for quite a while. One of the things I love about his Premium Site is that it is on point. I go there to read and get inspired about all the possibilties of owning my own hot dog cart, and being in business for myself. The fact I can go there and not be bombarded with tons of ads and offers from other companies a rarity nowadays. I for one appreciate it and am planning on building four of my grandchildren their own Hot Dog Junior Carts this Christmas! Keep up the good work.

"I like to interact with the other members. Its nice to know you are not the only one that thinks being a hot dog slinger is a good Idea. The cart build instructions are excellent. If I ever decide to build another it will be from your plans. Even if you not building a cart it gives you ideas on changes to the cart you currently have. I used the plans to add a sink to my cart. This winter we will be making even more changes."

I am retired and in the last few years have also had a number of operations (triple-a, pace maker, pneumonia , diabetic) In the mean time I've been working on my cart and plan to do a lot of slinging of those delicious hot dogs. Carts of cash has given me a good deal of inspiration to get it done by spring.

All I can say is thank you Steve!"

“I have been slinging hot dogs, sausages and burgers for 6 seasons and consider myself quite a veteran. That being said I still consider Steve my mentor and have taken advantage of the Premium Membership. The website service is reason enough to become a member. I receive inquiries on the website all the time about booking me for events. My replies are enhanced by suggesting they go to my website where they can find out about me, my cart, menus and the like. That website, offered to Premium members has paid off for me a hundred times the price of the membership!”
-Joel Miller, Kaimelsky's, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member

I have also taken advantage of your website building service and look to be utilizing that more fully very soon. Keep up the good work."

-Dapper D, Dapper Demand Hot Dog St

"I bought a Hot Dog Profits Membership for the designs on how to build a small cart but living up to my nickname "overkill Bill" I went way past a small cart. That's ok because there were so many other helpful aspects of the site like info on how to start and run a hot dog business. It answered questions i didn't even know I had yet. Plus the self help books and fact that Steve answers the phone personally is awesome. It's definitely money well spent."
-Bill with Sloppy Doggs, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
"I can't express enough how much I owe you for your guidance and support for my first year as a slinger.

Kudos to you for being a champion!"
-James Nitz, Hank's Franks, Hot Dog Profits Premium Member
