    Hello All First I would like to apologize for the lack of updates. A VERY close friend of mine (like a brother) passed away. He did not leave his family much money...so I sold alot of my assets...including my Airstream...in order to lay him to rest properly. Needless to say this took alot out of me both emotionaly and financialy...I have no regrets in doing so. So I am getting back on my horse now and plotting my next steps. Im kinda back to square one. I will keep you all posted. Again...from the bottom of my heart...thank you all for your interest and input. and I WILL keep in touch.

    Hello All Sorry for the slow updates. Well...some things happened. Its a bit overwelming. I may end up in Detroit. I found a location a block away fom Comerica Park (Tigers baseball stadium) and Ford Field (Lions stadium). Although I will be doing business as usual in Ann Arbor. This has been the focus of my attention for the past month. Right now...it is a vacant lot within the city of Detriot...3,000sqfoot. So the landscape of this project has changed a bit. Introducing alot of other variables...The owner has had the land for years and just never came around to doing anything with it. So...

    New Location Now...keep in mind that this is unwashed, unpolished and I am doing work inside...its just too cold outside right now. So this is the new location...under an overhang. Lots of posibilities with this. I can either go sit under, or drive through.... What you are looking at is the cooking side...I am going to turn it around. These windows will be covered over and equipment goes there. The inside is totally gutted.

Target open month is the end of March...beginning of April. I am now getting alot of attention from would be customers...asking when I am going to be open for business.

    Well...I dont think thats a problem...well...maybe.... The only bad thing that happened today was the fight that happened between customers when I let everyone know how many I had left. All I saw was someone that threw a punch and then it was broken up...Boy was I glad that there were alot of police around...I think they "drank" their breakfast before getting to my stand. Oh...and the student that said he would hang himself if I did not have a burger for him...He must have been a drama student

    One thing that I know is food equipment...how to fix my own..etc. I take things apart to see how they work, then put them back toghether...I can stand when someone tells me...oh you can do that!....sHeeeeeeet. I will take anything apart. Most of the time when Ive done this...I did not like what I found. Alot of that commercial equipment is kinda flimsy if you ask me. I like doing this so if I do choose to have someone else fix it...they can't jerk me! BUT Stuff that the Health Department would come down on me for...like kitchen stuff. I buy all NSF approved stuff. Things like service counters

    I'm pretty sure it would be less expensive to have them print your logo on the cups than use stickers. The parent company is Georgia Pacific. You can make an inquiry. If I understand small batches, like 8,000 cups are not a problem for them. ← 8,000 cups ..hey...Im not one of the big three 8000 is small...you have to remember not to shock me like that...Im still a little guy. But I will check.

    Funny you should say that. Being from the NYC, I contacted a cart maker. I asked for him to send me the schematics to a $10k cart. Well...instead he sent me the cut sheet....that was a big Oops on their part. What they sent me is what they used to manufacture the cart itself...measurements and all...so....I have quickly taught myself how to weld. The only thing I am playing with is aluminum thickness and what not....that is in the works. I even invested in a nice Mig welder with gas. I figured I would needed it anyway to make counters and tables and such. My mind is allways going...its a wond

    Magus you're nothing but trouble. They don't say paper in the description but on that site they are under the paper category. Somebody must sell them in Michigan. ← THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! YOU ARE THA MAN!!! I jus did not want to have to serv drinks out of thoes gawd awful cups with thoes wacked designs on them. Every time I see them they turn my stomach.. Plain white cups, Plain white bags, with burgers in plain white butcher paper!! At least I can put my own logo sticker on these!!!

    O.K...I know you want to serve hotdogs but....and there is always a but...The first place to research is the Health Dept. Find out what the rules are for what you want to do...then go from there. Most Health departments will let you get away with an electric griddle because they dont have fumes from gass and no open flames. You can even use a panini grill if you really wanted to with no ventelation system needed. You will still need a three bay sink and mechanical refrigeration. This also depends on how many "servings" you plan on selling. If there is a will there is a way. Also, Check thi

    No Actually 20 somthings....I do get a great number of more mature customers though. I want to say so much about my idea of the decor but I dont want to let too much out too fast. ← O.K im gonna explode...I'll give just a little. First, the idea of being retro is false...we are not retro...we just never caught up Second...The pictures that I have...are all done in Sepia tone or technicolor or B&W...cant decide right now. ..dont want the focus to be on the color...just the image. During the day...WW ll era jazz and big band...stuff like that...in the evening...the music changes. S
