I know people who are food vendors; and I can assure you that they are not getting rich doing it. On a good day they make some decent money, but they have a fair number of bad days too. They can't control the weather and that has a major impact on how many people turn out for the events they go to. They usually have to pay a vendor fee for the large events and may even have to give up a percentage of their sales to the event. The government has rules on food safety so they have to buy the stuff they plan to sell and keep it fresh, refrigerated or whatever until they cook it. They can only keep stuff so long before they have to throw it away if they don't sell it. They have to buy and maintain their equipment. They have to haul it to the event and set it up and take it down and then go home. They have to buy the food and prepare it. All of this takes time or you have to pay someone else to do it. There is a tremendous amount of labor and overhead that many people don't factor in to that hot dog they buy from the food cart. They just think, wow they are getting rich selling hot dogs for $4 when I could just buy them for a fraction of that at the store.
