Let us show you how to increase revenues at your concession stand!
Whether you’re a church, a school, or an amateur athletic program, you already understand the importance of a quality concession operation. It’s a great ancillary fundraiser for your organization, and it keeps people at your event longer.
Our team at Don’s Supply has been Arkansas’ leading provider of concession stand supplies since 1969, and we’re here to help you get the most from your concession operation. We have a wide selection of concession supplies and concession machines for sale, and are always glad to offer our professional expertise at no additional charge. Here are just a few ideas that can help you maximize profits at your concession stand:
Offer Combos-Your concession stand volunteers should actively upsell each and every guest. If they order a drink, offer them a larger drink for a few cents more, or a bag of potato chips. You should also take your cues from the fast food industry: by bundling soft drinks and snacks, you’re selling more items, and your customer saves a quarter. Everyone wins!
Push Your Most Profitable Items-Restaurants like to position their most profitable menu items in the spots where their guests’ eyes fall on the menu, and enclose them in a box. You might not have a menu, but you can definitely do creative signage, or put your popcorn and hot dogs front and center on your concession counter to suggestively sell.
Offer Increased Variety and Create Scarcity-If you have a Shave Ice or Sno-Kone machine, your guests will want to come back and try every flavor. But have you ever thought about seasonal specials? Create a custom flavor for the big tournament or for Valentine’s day that’s only available for a limited time, and bump up the price by .50 or $1.00. Your guests will line up around the corner!
