Hot Dog Truck

Well ...
after 6 months and many thousands of $$$ we finally got Mike's Rollin' Kitchen Truck out in the world making money. Well at least its out in the world. It has been a very long, hard and sometimes frustrating process.

First the truck itself was a big challenge. I took a catering truck that hadn't seen the road in 6 years and made it into a working rolling kitchen. Wow, that took 7 months and a lot of money. I had to basically throw out most of the equipment and buy new stuff.

Then came the licensing process. First I had to take the Serve Safe course and pass the test, then the Mass State hawkers and vendors license, then the town board of health had to approve and issue their license and lets not forget the mass meals tax license.

It is a wonder I got this going at all.......

I guess all good things take a lot of time and effort. Hopefully this will pay off in the long run. I don't want to sound negative but........

I would caution anyone that wants to be a "hot dog man", "Rollin' Kitchen, or even run a canteen truck, think about it long and hard then keep your day job!

Michael Scott ODonnell

My name is Michael Scott ODonnell. I am a folk/rock musician from New England. I have been writing and performing music since 1980. I have a small independant music company called MSO Music Company. Here is the web link: .

I have set up this blog for Musicians that need to be heard. The "big" record companies out there are not offering any voice for musicians that are trying to get their music career off the ground. In the comming weeks I will post articles and links to help musicians that are trying to be heard.

You can contact me directly via email at anytime. You can also check out my web site at .
Good luck to all aspring musicians. "Remember music may be a hard road to travel, but the rewards taste sweeter when you have experienced a little pain"
