Business At A Glance

  • Business: Hot Dog Cart
  • Start-up Costs: R2 000 – R10 000
  • Part Time: Can be operated part-time
  • Online Operation? No

Business Overview

The biggest challenge to overcome in terms of starting a hot dog vending business is to secure a vendor’s permit in your local community. However, even if you can’t get one, you can still operate a hot dog cart on privately-owned property and cater to functions such as flea markets, auctions, sporting events and fairs.

This is a terrific business to operate on a full- or part-time basis. Secure a good location or local events to cater to. Read more on Why the V&A Food Market is a Great Place to do Business.

Currently, new hot dog vending carts are retailing in the range of R4 000 to R8 000 each, depending on the features. However, as a method to reduce start-up costs, consider purchasing a secondhand hot dog cart – they’re typically half the cost of a new one.

You have a few options available in terms of starting a grocery delivery service. The first is to simply contract with local grocery stores to deliver customer orders for a fee. The grocery store would bill the customer, market the service and manage the deliveries.

You simply deliver the groceries. The second and more lucrative option is to establish a buying account with a grocery wholesaler and resell groceries to your customers at a profit.
