Big Apple Hot Dogs – Custom printed catering Mini Marquee


We love a success story here at Gazeboshop, especially when it’s one we have played a part in!

Take Big Apple Hot Dogs for example. When Abiye Cole contacted us looking for a stunning instant shelter to keep the elements at bay from his prized hot dog cart, we were happy to help.

Ex New Yorker Abiye had the brainwave of selling authentic New York style hot dogs whilst he was unemployed. He was determined to work for himself and set up the business on a shoe string budget of just £2000! At first it was just him, his cart and his delicious no additive hot dog recipe but as business started to boom, Abiye realised he could take the outfit promotionally to the next level whilst protecting himself, his catering equipment and his customers from the rain.

He found the solution in our Aluminium Extreme 40 Series range of gazebos and opted for a stunning full custom branding on his gazebo canopy. Like lots of customers looking for a catering gazebo, Abiye liked the fact that the Pro 40 combined a robust durable construction thanks to its reinforced Aluminium structure, but was still lightweight enough for him to transport to music festivals, film sets and his usual “pitch” in Old Street in London.

The dye sublimation print technique meant that every square inch of the gazebo canopy could be pantone matched to Big Apple Hot Dogs vibrant yellow and red cartoon style logos. The end result is a practical useful piece of kit with promotional power that lets customers know where the Hot Dogs are in town!

We are so delighted that Abiyes business continues to go from strength to strength….His hot dogs are a huge hit with film stars like Tom Cruise and he has even taken them to the PM at Number 10!

Big Apple Hot Dogs can be enjoyed next time you are in London from the Old Street cart. See the menu and list of other venues at
