It was a hit-and-run Saturday that banged up Nate Beck’s hot dog cart, as he was running errands before heading to Kindred Kitchen in north Minneapolis, towing the cart behind his mini-van. He’s fine. But the cart, which was rear-ended, “has a pretty good dent,” Beck said. “It doesn’t look the prettiest, but it all works OK.”
His car was stopped at Lyndale and West Broadway when he was hit. “It seemed like he [the other driver] did it on purpose,” said Beck, who didn’t see the driver’s license plate but noted that it was a two-door black sedan from the early 2000s.
The cart manufacturer,Dreammaker Hot Dog Carts in Florida, saw word of the accident on Beck’s Facebook page and contacted him to help.
“Now that’s customer service above and beyond,” said Beck, who was back with the hot dogs later that day.
