Don’s Supply is your concession stand partner!
We’re not sure what it is that makes great food such an important part of watching the big game, but why fight it? Even people that don’t like college football that much love going to tailgate parties, and for most people the big game is the best excuse there is to get some friends together and enjoy some great food. The same is true for youth sports. We love supporting our children and encouraging them to learn the value of leadership and teamwork. But we can’t do it on an empty stomach, can we?
Don’s Supply has been Arkansas’ most trusted foodservice superstore since 1969, and we’re always happy to answer any questions that you have about running your concession stand. Concession stands are typically operated by people with little to no restaurant experience, which is why the food should be quick and easy to prepare. A concession stand is a great secondary revenue source for a sports program, and it encourages guests to stay at events longer. Here are a few of the most profitable (and easiest to prepare) items that are a great part of a successful concession operation:
Popcorn-Popcorn smells as good as it tastes, and is a great way to drive business to your concession stand. It’s also healthy, and very profitable. We offer popcorn machines suitable for a small conference room, all the way up to machines with twin 52 Ounce kettles suitable for a stadium. Be sure to also stock up on soft drinks as well!
Nachos-Nachos are a small snack for some people, and a full meal for many others. But they’re one of the easiest ways to serve something hot and delicious without a kitchen. Most people also like add ons like chili, jalapenos, and sour cream, and will happily pay a little extra for them.
Hot Dogs-Hot dogs and sports go hand in hand, and most people don’t just buy one! Hot dogs are cheap and easy to prepare, and many of your guests will choose to skip dinner to leave room for a couple of hot dogs at the game. It’s also just as easy to serve footlongs, bratwurst, and Polish Sausages.
