From a business perspective, operating a hot dog business makes a lot of sense. You can take a gourmet hot dog that costs $2.00 to make and sell it for $5.00. There’s no special skill required to cook and serve a world-class hot dog either.

You can find see hot dog carts scattered across the United States and even internationally. The U.S. Hot Dog Council (Yes, this is a real organization.) estimated 15% of the 10 billion hot dogs consumed by Americans in 2014 were bought at hot dog carts.

The health crisis hasn’t slowed down hot dog sales either. In fact, hot dog sales grew by 120% as Americans proclaimed the meal as the ‘best’ quarantine food. Despite falling sales at the start of the health crisis due to stockpiling, sales rebounded and even exceeded sales back compared to previous years.
