A lot of Wall Streeters were caught offguard when they got laid off during the recession – and rival firms weren’t hiring.
When investment banker Oleg Voss got laid off he decided to trade his Wall Street suit for slightly different uniform – a street-cart apron!
Inspired by time he spent in Vienna, Voss opened a roaming food truck on the streets of New York City selling schnitzel, breaded cutlets of chicken or other meat.
A trip to the Vendy awards for New York’s top street-cart vendors, revealed more white-collar professionals like Voss who took a pay cut for the love of food – and being their own boss.
Only in New York!
