Re: Hey Lorna, be careful out there!

We have had Subway (manager no less) get nasty with us. I think they lied to us here in Roswell. Claimed they owned an empty store/parking lot when we are pretty sure they didn't. Ran David off. He just set up someplace else. I also think that a different Subway manager called code enforcement on us. No problem, We have all permits and can pass a spot health inspection at any time (and have). Code enforcement showed up less than 10 minutes after the Subway manager was "visiting" our cart and perusing the menu. Or it was a just a coincidence.

Some vendors are just off. You always get a small percentage of nut cases in anything. It's life. But there simply is not the big $$ in this business that you are led to believe based on the Food truck shows you see on TV. It's is getting less too. But the local governments are jacking the permit and license fees up and requiring more expensive hoops for us to jump thru. Partly due to pressure from brix-&-mortar restaurants and partly because the governments think we are making big bucks out there

Some of those food vendors carry guns too! We just have a "personal people pummeler". It's a 16 oz metal meat tenderizer. We use it to hold the $$ down on the counter while we make change. Handy little thing. Looks like this.

As an aside, I've actually seen a few businesses in St. Pete advertising on CL for food vendors to come sit in their parking lots.
Who? Me? Never had to use the thing on anyone. But all of us ( David, me & our daughter) have had to set the thing down a little heavily on the counter at at least one time. I don't run the cart anymore. I got a job so it's all David. He's talking about switching our menu over to hand dipped ice cream in waffle cones (I love waffle cones... how fat can I get?) and only working the warm days. I'm still looking for our next location to spend a couple years in. I would like to go back to the east coast beaches. Right now looking at SC & GA coasts. All things depend on decent park prices, weather, location of a Home Depot that is hiring (so I can just walk into a job) and no commissary needed. That knocks FL out (commissary required and parks cost too much plus, it's FL.... I can't go back to FL) and possibly GA is out.

Sometimes food vending can get dangerous.

Re: Hey Lorna, be careful out there!

sometimes asking the vendor what the food is can be dangerous...
esp when wify has knife in her hand.

Like any Southern-born woman..... I'm a bit fond of desserts. That's desserts, not deserts. I have discovered I'm not overly fond of deserts.
