Your hotdog cart is the flagship of your business. Not only did you invest your hard earned money into purchasing the necessary equipment for your enterprise. You would have also invested a lot of your time and effort in preparing for your opening. But before opening your store, you need to do some advertising to let customers know you are in business. The following are some ways for you to inform the world that you are open for business.

Soft Openings. When you finally open for business, you need not open as a full-blown set up. You can open and provide a few options for your new clients. Once you have opened the hotdog stand, you can learn about the tricks of the trade and iron out the kinks of your business processes. After a couple of weeks, you would be able to identify your problem areas and thus improve your business when you finally run full time. Soft openings are ways in order for you to also test your market as to their response to your hotdog fare.

Flyers. This is the cheapest way to advertise your business. Since you have already scouted the foot traffic in the area and determined the businesses around your business area, giving out flyers a few days before soft opening and full opening would help inform your possible market of your business. Also, providing coupons for those that bring the flyers over to your concession stand would help in showing how effective this marketing tool is to your business.

Quality and quality. As the Latin saying goes, res ipsa loquitur, the thing speaks for itself. You need to show your prospective clients that your menu contents are the best in the area. Thus you need to keep strict quality controls on the food ingredients and preparation process for your food. When you make quality food, then word gets around and when word gets around you would be able to tap into your market and make a name for your business.

Advertising your business need not be such a full-blown and expensive endeavor. Undertaking a soft opening would make a splash for your market to inform them of your business. Giving out flyers would essentially open a larger market for your business by providing information to your target market. The best way though to make and keep your clientele is the quality of the food that you serve. Having all these together would sure start your business right for you and earn your profits in the long run.
