Conrado's Hot Dog Carrito Wheels and Deals in Wynwood

Conrado Viera has a mobile hot dog hustle that takes him to about 25 or 30 locations a day for about 30 minutes at a time starting at about 8 in the morning. He says, "Yo ando todo aca en NW en todo partes de Wynwood." He sells sausage, hot dogs, chips, juice, soda and sno cones. He bought his cart completely stripped, fixed it up, and readied it for the streets himself. He spends only $10 a week in gas for it. As far as the economy, Conrado says that business is "abajo bastante" (significantly down), but that all he has to do to make up for it is work an extra two hours a day. "Just gotta work more and have good prices," he says. Here are some pictures of Conrado and his gas powered hot dog cart.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
