Concession stands are a great secondary income stream for athletic programs, and we can help you get started!
Don’s Supply has been partnering with restaurants, bars, food trucks, and other commercial foodservice operations since 1969, and we love seeing our clients grow! But did you know that we also have concession stand supplies and concession machines for sale? Our selection of concession supplies is second to none, and accompanied with years of expertise at no additional charge.
Unlike restaurants, concession stands are typically operated by people with little to no restaurant experience. But that doesn’t mean that they can’t be top-notch operations. We are always happy to help churches, schools, and civic organizations create a great concession program to help keep fans in their seats longer, and to raise some additional funds to defray the expenses of operating a sports league or carnival. Here are a few of the most profitable (and easiest to prepare) items that are a must for any concession stand:
Popcorn-Popcorn is one of the most inexpensive items to prepare, and is a healthy snack! We offer popcorn machines suitable for a small fellowship hall, all the way up to machines with twin 52 Ounce kettles suitable for a large arena. The smell of popcorn is intoxicating, and it also leads to increased sale of soft drinks!
Nachos-Many people debate what food item that Arkansas is best known for, but cheese dip is a leading contender. The great thing about nachos is the ability to “upsell” add-ons such as jalapenos, sour cream, and chili.
Hot Dogs-The beauty of hot dogs is that most people don’t just buy one! They also offer a lot of opportunities for upselling add-ons.
Funnel Cakes-Many people spend their entire year in anticipation of the Arkansas State Fair because of all the creative fried items available for sale. Why not create that same kind of magic each time that your sports teams hosts a game? We carry regular and red velvet funnel cake mixes.
