The Originators of the Stainless Steel Hot Dog Cart & Legendary Good Humor Ice Cream Cart


Worksman Trading Corp., the parent company of Worksman Cycles and Worksman Vending Units, is the oldest cycle manufacturer in America, established in 1898 in New York City. In fact, the original Worksman facility was located on the very footprint of the World Trade Center.

Worksman has been the leading manufacturer of Industrial Cycles for decades serving the needs of the U.S. Military, leading manufacturing companies and small businesses across America and the world. Legendary models include the iconic Good Humor Ice Cream Tricycle and Cart, the New York City Pizza Delivery Bike and our Industrial Tricycles seen in shipyards and factories worldwide.

Worksman Vending was created when Worksman Trading purchased Admar Vending in the 1990’s. Admar, established in 1946, was the originator of the quintessential New York City Stainless Steel Hot Dog Cart. Its carts established the New York street food industry and have remained an iconic feature of the “Big Apple.”

Today, Worksman is the undisputed leader offering the finest vending units for virtually any food product. Our products range from pushcarts and cycles to fully enclosed kiosks, truck conversions and restaurant quality mobile kitchens.

Worksman Catering Trucks, StepVan Conversions and Mobile Kitchens set the standard for the rapidly expanding mobile food industry.

Each unit is custom-made to your exact specifications and needs and is built by master craftsmen in our New York City manufacturing plant.

Whether you require a roadside hotdog truck or a world class gourmet kitchen on wheels, a Worksman Mobile Unit will keep on delivering profits for years!

What Sets Worksman Apart

All Worksman Vending Units are still made in our 100,000 square foot facility in New York City which occupies an entire city block in Queens. Master craftsmen, many there for decades and who work beside sons and relatives, are proud to be part of our century old heritage of building the best products of their kind available. That heritage is not only passed down through generations of workers, but through their management as well. Worksman is still a family-owned and operated business with the original families of Worksman Trading and Admar Vending still running our business.
