Do You Know What Time It Is? It's STORYTIME!
I got a call today from a guy, I think he said his name is Thomas. My staff forgot to tell me he had called Friday after I had gone home. Thomas asked if he could set up his hot dog stand (his small box) in front of my store. In addition to the public sidewalk I have about 12' x 80" of sidewalk that is on my property. He said that he has the necessary license and insurance.
I asked him to call back on Wednesday which would give me time to think about things like trash and rent.
My staff and I tried to come up with an appropriate rent which led Andy to google. He found HotDogVendorNews. Did you know that the prime spot in NYC is outside the Met Museum of Art? The winning bid was, are you ready for this, something like $500,00o/year for about 100 sq ft!!
I was thinking more along the lines of $8 a day. No charge if the weather was too nasty to set up or there wasn't enough foot traffic to justify being open.
