Concession stand food ideas

Thanks for everyone who is sharing their great ideas on this board! I just took over concessions for our swim team, and we have a few big sellers. I'm eager to try the pickles this summer because I think the kids will love it. Are you using sweet or dill juice? Or do the kids not care?

Traveling Tacos are our biggest seller by far: Bag of Fritos crunched up, add a scoop of taco meat (ground beef browned, then mixed in crockpot with taco seasoning), cheese, sour cream and lettuce. We offer salsa, hot sauce, and jalapenos in our condiments bar. We charge $3.50.

Meatball Subs: Frozen meatballs from Costco, sub roll, sauce. It's less than $1 each to make and we charge $3.50, so good profit margin.

BBQ Chicken: Just chicken breasts in the crockpot with BBQ sauce, then shredded. We serve on a hamburger bun, $3.50.

We have each family donate fruit at each meet and we make a Fruit Cup of melon, berries, and grapes. These sell for $1 and it's all profit. These usually sell out early; it's great to have something cold and healthy.

This year I want to try a cold pasta salad so we have a vegetarian option. I haven't priced the ingredients yet, though.

We also do Breakfast Burritos for early morning meets: Either egg & cheese or sausage, egg & cheese. We scramble eggs and brown the sausage; wrap them in tortillas and then foil. In the morning, we heat them up in the oven. These are very popular and are only $1/$1.50.

I would love some more HEALTHY ideas. We have a small fridge and lag time between meets, so I can't do yogurt, milk, and other items that warm quickly or won't hold between events.

For those of you who sell hot chocolate, cup-o-noodles, and such...have you ever had a liability issue with someone burning themselves?

Jaime N,

That's a great question! I'm going to check with our customer support folks to see if they've heard of this.

Will get back to you,

Frito Pie is generally popular for us. Just Chili in a bag of fritos with cheese and sour cream. You can make a pot of chili for next to nothing... we often have that donated so our outcost is for the individual frito bags, spoons, sour cream and shredded cheese.

Nachos are easy and popular as is popcorn.

Burger and tacos was a very good idea i am wondering that why some fundraising did not think that food was a good option to collect money.I've been a fundraiser in Finland country for two years in www.pilkkoset.fi/ and i always think different kinds of idea however i did not think about this one which i feel a very good idea.
