Fletcher’s Corny Dogs and Big Tex are Texas icons. This year, the State Fair of Texas canceled for only the third time in its history. While customers are frustrated, we recognize that a lot of businesses that rely on Fair funds may suffer. In an effort to help small businesses learn from each other, we reached out to Aaron Fletcher at Fletcher’s Corny Dogs to see how they are pivoting to survive COVID-19.
