Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
A new study has found that 72% of shopping carts handles have fecal matter on them. As many as 50% of those carts also tested positive for E. coli bacteria. According to the lead researcher from the University of Arizona study, Charles Gerba, “That’s more than you find in a supermarket’s restroom.”
Don’t worry though, where there’s a need, some entrepreneur will fill it.
One such company is Eco CartSafe. They manufacture a self-contained, portable sanitizing system designed to clean grocery shopping carts via a conveyor system that can accommodate up to 150 carts per hour. Their system uses high pressure super hot water and some kind of “
bacteriostatic” spray to protect the carts from fungal, viral and bacterial growth for up to 60 days. They have a turnkey, mobile business opportunity available.
Another company is PureCart Systems. Their system is a push through device that washes carts one at a time as they are returned to the store. Their machine, which looks like an x-ray machine, sprays a fine mist of hydrogen peroxide over the entire surface of the cart.
