How to Make Money Selling Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are one of the most expensive concessions types in terms of cost of raw materials. A good quality hot dog is not super cheap like some other options and your customers can taste the difference between high quality and low quality hot dogs.


Hot Dogs are Meals: People think of hot dogs as being a part of a meal. Other types of concessions are a treat or a dessert that people splurge on every once in a while. Hot dogs check the mental box of being enough food to count as a meal. People are willing to spend more on a meal than they are on a snack. The typical amount that people are willing to spend on a hot dog based meal is around $5. The cost of that hot dog meal is probably around $1.60 when you consider the hot dog, bun, condiments and a drink. That is still a profit of $3.40 per customer.


Lunch is Not Just for Special Events: Lunch is not just something that people eat at the fair or carnival like most concessions. How often do you stop for a cotton candy or a snow cone? Not very often. Most people eat lunch every day. This greatly increases the number of options for selling hot dogs to people instead of just the standard event concessions stands. Sure you can show up at large events, but you might be just as well served to set up shop outside of busy office building.


How Much can I Make? Like most of the vending and concession worlds, earning comes down to location and how hard you are willing to work. You can easily make $30,000 a year by selling hot dogs and if you are really good, it is not unheard of to make $100,000 per year selling hotdogs. Our advice remains to start small and work your way up instead of starting out with the most expensive hot dog stand you can buy and then hoping that your business will grow to use it.
