worksmanManufacturer: Worksman Trading Corporation

Description: Workmans Trading Corporation has a long and storied history in the mobile food space and is widely regarded as the oldest existing bike maker. In fact, they were the creators of the Original Good Humor Ice Cream Tricycle. Over the years this tricycle has become a symbol of simpler times and classic Americana. Although likely most known for their ice cream bike and trikes, the company has also manufactured hot dog carts for many years.

Worksman has also built the Adamar hot dog carts. These carts are famous for being on just about every New York City street corner back in the day. Their Ultra Lite Hot Dog Cart has been used to vend such brands as Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs and Hebrew National. The company has been in business in 1898. Worksman can also provide you with support in building food trucks, mobile food kiosks, large bikes, and delivery cycles.
