Can anyone point me where to buy 4 oz portion cups with lids? We don't have a restaurant depot around here, and Sam's only has 2 oz cups, in a 2500 count pack, which is quite a bit more than I need.

thanks!

I found these two on the web.

Also, have you check with a local food distributor? Someone like Sysco or US Foods. I don't know who is in your area, but if there is a distribution center in Savannah, you could set up an account and pick up supplies at their will call.

I saw the another set on webstaurantstore, but they seemed expensive!
We have both US foods and Sysco here, I might have to use my restaurant connection to find out their price.

Check online at Sams.com they have many things online that are not in stores and you can ship it to store for free.

I decided to just get a few 4 oz serving spoons to use instead. Ended up being about 20 bucks delivered.

Just curious why you want them? Do you sell your product based on 4 oz. volume rather than weight?

We're vending our first festival next weekend and I wanted to have a quick and easy way to maintain portion control. I figured a 4 oz plastic cup would be the way to go. I noticed that a few of the bbq joints in town serve their sides in these cups.

WE use the 4oz cups also.

Where are you purchasing them, and cost/quantity (if you don't mind :grin:)?

This thread caught my eye.

FWIW, wife and I bought a couple individual tubes of cups/lids today at Business Costco. 125 of each in a tube, couple 2-3 bucks each tube.

That would be perfect, but we don't have costco around here either.
