One thing that I always like to point out on my blog are cool brands or businesses that I run across who are using social media to grow their business and to communicate with their base. I didn’t have to look very far to find the topic for this post, instead I ran across this guy right here in Conway by way of recommendations from my friends on Twitter!
Brad Kossover who owns and operates Green Cart Deli makes the absolute best hot dog that I have ever eaten, but aside from that, he has an awesome business. In a nutshell he has the first “green” hot dog cart that I have ever seen. By green, I mean that his entire cart is solar powered and even the paper products he uses are recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable. You can read an interesting article about Brad’s cart on the Log Cabin Democrat website. One other thing that makes Green Cart Deli really cool in my opinion is the fact that he uses Facebook and Twitter (in addition to his website) to let his growing number of Central Arkansas fans know where he will be located each day so they can track him down for their hot dog. You can find his twitter page and his facebook page to be pretty two way considering he has a full time job managing the cart everyday!
If you are ever in Conway, Arkansas and don’t have lunch plans, I highly recommend you track Brad down, he’s also a really nice guy to talk to. I am a purist when it comes to hot dogs so I mostly get a plain dog w/ mustard and celery salt, but if you are brave you should check out something from the menu. Steven Trotter, was in town this weekend and he had the Chicago Dog and raved about it.
