When we are vending we usually park about town where we can find a suitable place with access to power. On the weekends it's easy, we just pull up in front of a office building, plug in and vend. No one has any issues with that so far. (pwr is pretty cheap here)

Do you move about your Town or are you religated to one spot and call it your own?

Ouch! If it were my office building, I would call the police and have you arrested!

If you had contacted me as the building owner, I most likely would have given you permission. But who's insurance pays for the fire when my building burns down because you overload my circuits without my permission? Did you think of that?

This is VERY presumptuous and wrong (read: ILLEGAL) on your part... To plug into someone else's electricity without their permission is both theft AND trespassing.

First, what is funny about something illegal?

Second, why don't you just ASK the business owner for his permission?

Third, what is your answer when "the arresting officer" shows up?

Fourth, I am relaxing. I simply have no tolerance for things that are just wrong.

First, what is funny about something illegal? Not illegal Jimmie

Second, why don't you just ASK the business owner for his permission? Already did Jimmie

Third, what is your answer when "the arresting officer" shows up? The officer usually has the pulled pork special Jimmie

Fourth, I am relaxing. I simply have no tolerance for things that are just wrong.


Boy did you ever get that backarsewards.......we understand the rules, regs, laws, etc, those are a given, we are in business as are the folks we are addressing (or aspiring to) and they would know not to jump off the edge like you did. No harm done Thanks Jimmie...

No I did not. You mentioned you "just pull up and plug in". You did not mention that you got permission from the building owner.

Very misleading to the newbies when YOU don't tell the whole story.

LOL What is this the second post and it’s already starting LOL you were a little vague with your post Southern Smoke but when I read it I assumed you did all that because that’s what I would have done (gotten with the owner and asked first) but you have to remember Jimmie may operate that same way so next time you might want to do a very expansive step by step post. This could have been easily solved by asking “hey did you get the owners permission” and not “Ouch! If it were my office building, I would call the police and have you arrested” lol Jimmie you should really read your posts and stop fu%#ing assuming that everyone is out to FU$# the next guy

I still stand by my criticism of the lack of clarity in your original post.

TRUE STORY: The city sent a work crew to do some sewer repair on the street in front of my GF's house. The crew went to the house of her neighbor (a lawyer) and just started using the water out of his faucet. They messed up his patio with cement crap. He called city hall and raised hell.

Your post seemed to convey this same nonchalant behavior. If you had been more clear, for certain I would not have posted.

Have a nice day!

Most folks would ask a question about it first if it sounded brief, pretty poor the first post's in a new section gets this treatment. jimmie's being true to his tagline...lol
Anyway, no problem..so back to the original post..

Now if we can get back to the original question. I am trying to establish a permanent location to use. I wouldn't be able to be there every day of the week due to the number of fairs and festivals we do. I set up in Wal Mart lot last year but the center owners are building a new building and I had to find a new place. Will be setting up at Sears lot. A little more out of the way but next to main road. See if people follow us. Advertise in the local paper and hand outs.

I don't have a permanent place to park, like I said we move to various locations depending on weekday/weekend, It's a small town so not hard to miss our bright yellow trailer..I am planning to post to facebook to advise where we will be on a particular day though.

Well I'm not gettin involved in any legal stuff on this one. But here in Stamford, Ct.

I would consider any suggestions on a generator. I just hate to run a generator 24 hours for four days. It doesn't take long to spend a lot of money in gasoline. I have an ice maker and a hot holding cabinet in my supply truck I run plus my trailer.

man i sell generac and the only real reason for this is we build cell phone towers and SBA (ALLTEL) wanted generac standby on their towers but i have fell in love with their portable's the warranty is outstanding and when they need warranty if your local retailer is good they will be jonnie on the spot with a loner while yours is being worked on because generac warranty pay is great if you tell me what loads you have (microwave deep freezer and such) I will suggest one for you

I am just going to start vending this year. I live on a hwy that leads to "cottage country" and there are 3 restaurant in town, with one that shuts down for the summer (don't ask). So as I live on a "commercial" property and my trailer is a licensed kitchen, I am going to vend right outside my front door. I had better ask the wife if I can plug the trailer in, as she pays the hydro bill Laughing Laughing but I think I will be all right. I plan on vending Fridays for the traffic going into the park and on Sundays for them returning home. Saturdays I am keeping open for catering.
