Concession stand food ideas

We have a mostly Hispanic population, and we serve corn in a cup. We buy the gallons of canned corn at Sam's and warm it in a turkey roaster. We serve it in a 10 oz Styrofoam cup with mayonnaise or Mexican Crema(sour cream), Parmesan cheese, chili powder, and lemon juice...with a spoon. It is delicious and we go through 12 + gallons at any given event!

We sell hotdogs, frito pie, nachos, chili dog, cheesy dog. These only takes one crock pot of cheese and one crock pot of chili and of course, the hotdogs. You can interchange the sauces to come up with different things. We just added pretzels from sams that come with cinnamon sugar and salt. It gets warmed for 30 sec in the microwave. Sometimes people would order it with cheese. Next week we decided to add statefair corndogs from sam's. They are great fried, baked or microwaved. You can even serve them with cheese or chili if you like. We also sell all the major candies, sodas, chips, pickles and jerkies. For the little kids..otis spunkmeyer muffins, comes in a variety of flavors. Good Luck

I'm always looking for new and fun ideas, too. Enjoyed reading the replies. I help run a concession stand at various times throughout the school year. I have been trying to find healthy ideas. One item that I have had great results with is apple slices with caramel. I sell out every time! I use the same containers as nachos and use one of the pampered chef apple slicers to cut the apples. The caramel goes into the little part of the nacho container and I slice the apple right before they buy it so it doesn't turn brown. I have seen people do the same thing with ranch dressing and carrots.

I have run the concession stand for the past 2 years for our high school city sectional swim meets. I try to pick healthier foods, since it is the swimming world and most swimmers are fairly health conscious. The most popular items are hot pretzel w/ cheese, hot dogs, taco boats (chips, cheese, taco meat, lettuce, sour cream, jalapenos, etc) jumbo muffins (any time of day) (bannana nut, chocolate & blueberry) (Sam's Club muffins in their bakery freshly made in six packs). Banannas, YOGURTS!, bagged red and green grapes, Carrots & Dip and also Celery & PB are huge sellers. On a sweeter note, I also get parents to make baked goods like brownies, chocolate scotcheroos, and we cut them up and put them on a plate with a set of pinchers & small paper plates next to them and people help themselves....big seller because it is right in front of them "teasing" them. Fruit snacks, in small packs, are also a big seller. We sell them for .25 each because a lot of times kids only have a small amount of money and are looking for a snack that their last quarter will buy. Sour Punch Straws are, by far, our biggest "candy" seller. We sell them $1 each pack.

well I have one for you.......When you get done with selling all of those pickles.....take the juice and freeze it in little clear containers with lids....about the size of a mouthwash cup for condiments.......we call it a pickle pop and sell it for 50 cents.....we cant keep them....sometimes I actually just throw the pickles away to get the juice
