Street vendors are overwhelmingly small business owners: 96% of large-city vendors own their own business, and 90% of those also own the truck, cart, stand, or other structure from which they sell. Most vendors own only one structure, but some have grown into larger businesses with 10, 20 or even 50 vending units.
