STICKY SITUATION? "THERE'S AN APP FOR THAT" (and a franchise too)! As a GUM BUSTER, you clean gum from city sidewalks, stadium seats, restaurants, etc. with a specially-made machine using detergent, steam & water to remove gum spots off surfaces. According to one equipment supplier, an experienced gum buster could make $3,500/day although in most cases, Gum Busters charge by the square footage about $1.00/SF. This job not only keeps you moving, but helps eliminate chewing gum pollution.
