Nysa Rayno
Owner, Hot Diggity Dog

I have been a resident in the county for almost 12 years now. I am the owner of the late-night hot dog cart “Hot Diggity Dog.” I have owned the cart for four years now; you may have seen it in front of many spots around town such as the Salt Creek, Cecilia’s, Sherpa and Yeti’s and even Kenosha. I came up with the idea because there was no late-night food anywhere back then, and you know at that hour we are all craving something to eat.

When I heard the building center was relocating, I thought what a great spot to sell hot dogs during the day. You see them at all the Home Depots in any city everywhere. I had already spoken to the manager at the time about the old location, but as we all know, it was hard enough to fit a bunch of large trucks there let alone a hot dog cart. He told me of the new location and said it may work there. That gave me hope. I left him my portfolio, which included all my permits and letters of recommendation from all the locations I set up at late night.

After almost a year long wait excited about being at our newest addition to Breckenridge, management informed me they were not going to use my cart.

I visited the BBC today only to find that someone else was doing exactly what I had been trying to negotiate for months with them. The menu is almost identical to mine in fact. As a long-time local, and well known in the community, I have to admit my dream was shattered.
