About Build A Bun

Don was divorced, trying to raise his two boys and needed to find a way to supplement his income. He had always wanted to have a sandwich shop, and shared that dream with Vicki during one of their many walks. Vicki found Hot Dog University, run by Vienna Beef of Chicago. Don enrolled and ‘passed’ with flying colors! This only fueled his desire to start a sandwich business. Soon they were searching for a used hot dog cart to see if they could make a go of it.

In the spring of 2010 Don found a cart on eBay and Vicki placed the winning bid! The cart was in New York, so Don found himself in the truck on a 48-hour whirlwind trip. Don learned the cart by setting up in a parking lot and selling to customers.

That May of 2010 DVM Enterprises, Inc. was formed and Build A Bun was the launching pad. Since then they have been to many events such as the Frankfort Country Market, Cruisin' Lockport, Bluegrass Festival and the Will County Forest Preserve’s annual Fall Fest. Their company has grown over the past four years and just this year they purchased their third cart.

All of this has lead to this point. In May of 2014 they began their lease at the Grainery Shopping Mall and became restaurateurs for the first time. Don was the general manager of the project and did most of the carpentry work himself. Vicki found the trades and procured estimates and together they opened the doors on Thursday, August 14, 2014.

Don and Vicki invite you to come in, relax, enjoy a great meal and hopefully leave feeling refreshed.
