For those who commute to work on a daily basis, you may have noticed a sudden influx of these traders in your highways or streets. So a while back I was thinking through a business model where the vendors on the streets would be involved given their daily interaction with commuters. I won't go to details on what we discussed or tried out, but one thing I learned from my interaction with these vendors is that they take home at least 5k a week (Mon - Fri) and most are employed elsewhere. The returns were not as skewed as I expected, but seemed higher than I thought , something that made me rethink my biz model. In my quest to see how best to fit my biz model, I tried engaging different people at different times. Surprisingly I met a lady who's set up a stall somewhere in Roysambu - she and I have interacted before and so we got to discuss about the sweet selling venture. According to her, she sells sweets in the morning coz of the quick returns and later heads to her stall for the rest of the day. From our discussion, the figures she issued were also in sync with the rest. So what's my point here - selling sweets pays and better than idling and stealing from industrious citizens of the republic.
