Are you ready for the latest in business ideas? The food industry should sit up and take notice:
Yes, you can go to DollarHotdogs for just a dollar plus .99 for shipping and handling, you can order a hotdog grilled to perfection on a Foreman Grill.
Here is the sales pitch on their home page:
If you'refor a hotdog, you're in luck. For only $1, I will cook you a hot dog and mail it to you.
Just PayPal me a buck, and I will personally cook you a delicious hotdog, and then ship it out to you!
I'm really good at making hot dogs, so you may even want to buy a few! Generally speaking, I throw them on the Foreman Grill, to give them a nice even cook. But if I have a lot to cook, I might put them on the regular grill outside.
So let me just picture how this works.
I'm working away and I think, gee, I'm kinda hungry – sure could go for a hotdog. I know – I'll order one on Dollar Hotdogs. I place my order and then wait…what? 3-5 days and then my hotdog arrives.
Here is a disclaimer that is also on their home page:
actually eating hot dog after it arrives could make you really sick or cause death. do not eat.
Okay – so I order the hotdog, it arrives – COLD – and now I can't eat it.
And people are buying them? This website it making money?
I learned about this site from a local rock radio station so the owner is getting some notoriety. How did this idea evolve? What's next, portion sized toliet paper? Just go to the website and place your small, medium or large order, selecting from a variety of soft and thick styles? It then arrives in a plain brown wrapper direct to your home mailbox DAYS after you need it?
I gotta ask – what do you think of this hotdog idea? More importantly – WHY?
