Hot Dog Stand?
 
So i have a portable Grill..
I was thinking about setting up at a Local Course and selling Hot Dogs/Chips/Pop
my question is 1) Would people be interested in buying? 2) Would i have to fear cops? lol i mean people smoke on course non stop and not like im gonna be making millions

most cities require a license for this kind of "food cart" or truck whateverrrrr... Guys in busy areas can make 100k a year in NYC selling hotdogs like this but you will likely need a permit or something and cannot just open up a shop anywhere selling stuff no matter who, what, where'

Not a bad idea though at all specially if you went around to all the local leagues/tourneys and become the go-to guy for food/bev/snacks'

Yeah thats kind of what i figured. I'll def look into it.

I had this idea years ago. Make it a taco stand. Sell discs, too. Place cart near water hazard after the "smoke hole" and clean up.

In most locales, you generally need to get a business license to sell pretty much anything, and likely some sort of food permit as well. You also will have to have approval to sell your wares on public property (this is assuming the course is in a public park), which may not be permissible in some places.

Even little kids sadly, have run afowl of the law doing this.

There is a guy who does that at one of our courses. He does pretty well. He did have to get a permit.

We also started having a food truck come to our tournaments for lunch. Players seem to love it and the truck owners are happy with the amount of sales generated.

Several homes back up to Firefighter's where we play leagues. Every so often, a kid about 10-yrs old that sets up shop just beyond his backyard adjacent to 14's fairway with a cooler full of pop, water and bags of chips for a buck a pop. Looks like mom buys the jumbo sized packages at Costco, so he should be seeing a pretty healthy margin.

Shouldn't taco'd discs be on that menu? Better yet,
