Vegan Hot Dog Cart considers adding daytime hours — but they need your help



The Vegan Hot Dog Cart is a downtown institution, long beloved and appreciated by post-binge Orlando bar-hoppers (whether vegan or not). You can usually find them posted up right across from the Social (official address: 59 N. Orange Ave.), but they are considering adding daytime hours and they'd like your thoughts. Below is a message they posted on their Facebook page — either go there and let them know what you think, or post right here.

I'm nowhere near UCF during the day, but I'd be pretty glad to be able to get my hands on one of their chili-cheese dogs without having to dodge overserved loud-talkers and police horses. I vote Mills 50!

Vegan Hot Dog Cart needs your assistance right now. It has come to our attention that there are numerous would-be patrons in the area who are unable to enjoy our food due our late-night schedule. Therefore, we are entertaining the idea of opening up a second cart during the daytime (11am-4pm-ish). We wanted to know:

1. How do our patrons feel about the availability of vegan hotdogs available during the daytime?


2. What do you feel would be a good location?

There has already been some talk about the UCF area, however, we would still love to hear all of you voice your opinions, ideas, connections etc. Let us know!

Thank you in advance,
