Question: Concession prices

I'm brand new here, so please be gentle with me. :) We are a young charter school having our first concession stand. Would anyone be willing to share the prices you've charged for various concession stand items including hot dogs, popcorn, large pickles, chips, etc? Thank you in advance. I'm so happy to have found you all!

Hi there CrosslakeMom, 

One suggestion is to check with some of your local schools or organizations. Prices can vary in different parts of the country, so a local group might give you great insights. 

Here's some info from our site that you might find useful:

A thread on our Message Boards discussing concession stand pricing (the info. will be helpful, but you can also ask these folks some questions about specific pricing). 

A dicussion about good food items to sell with some pricing info

Good luck!
