Charles Richmond of Hot Diggity Dog Unlimited has been an ACEnet Food Ventures Tenant for 18 years! He began this business after getting laid off as an Engineer in the heat treating/automotive field in 2001. Charlie started out with a trailer that sold organic french bread pizza with quality sauce and great cheese. Unfortunately, in Charlie’s words, it went over like “a lead balloon.”
Now he has a hot dog/corn dog wagon and a Hawaiian Shave Ice trailer, both of which are festival & event favorites. Charlie took 1st place for his pawpaw mustard at the 16th annual Pawpaw Festival, and 3rd place in the 13th & 14th annual Pawpaw Festivals for beverages!
