From the Colorado mountains to the plains of Oklahoma, a new hotdog stand has officially set up for business in Duncan.
Just down the street on Walnut between 8th and 9th Streets, Dastardly Dogs — a little yellow food truck — will set up their stand daily at the location of the Chisholm Trail Arts Council.
Bob Bledsoe, owner, said they have been in business for six days and plan on staying in this location to sell their hotdogs.
“First day here — we plan on staying here,” Bledsoe said. “We’ll be back here a lot.”
According to Bledsoe, some days they will leave to go set up at events, but most of the time they will stay in the area.
Bledsoe said previously they came from owning a large concession stand in Colorado, but wished to downsize their business.
“I had a concession business in Colorado,” Bledsoe said. “It was a great big concession stand. I wanted to downsize things quite a bit, so I went to come out here and we bought this one for doing hotdogs and try to take it a little bit easier in life.”
According to Bledsoe, the food truck is a way for him and his wife to enjoy life.
“Have the grandkids come around every once in a while and have a little fun,” Bledsoe said.
With $3 hotdogs, $4 chili dogs, $4 sausage dogs, $4 Frito dogs, $2 drinks and $1 chips, the owners are ready for business.
“We’ve got a great grilled pepper and onion mix that goes very well on it,” Bledsoe said. “They sell pretty well.”
Bledsoe said they are having a great time in town.
“We’re glad to be here,” Bledsoe said. “We’ve been in Duncan now for about eight months and we just love the people here.”
Dastardly Dogs will set up in the same lot as 810 W. Walnut in Duncan, next to the Chisholm Trail Arts Council and Hodgson Studio of Music and Drama.
