Got hired to do the vending for the Screamfest park just north of my roadside spot. Thur, Fri, Sat and Sunday nights, 6 till midnight with an average gate of 1200 per night.
My first night is TOMORROW. :shock:

Just thought i'd pass on some good news. I'll keep you updated and get some pics!

So how many do you plan to feed an evening? I'd plan 400 - 600 a night with most of that being after 8pm, with most of my business being bratwurst, hot links and chili dogs. Maybe some rib tips. Would I be way off base?

Learned a lot this weekend. A roadside vendor does NOT make you a fairway vendor. :roll:
First night was busy, 1200 people who barely knew i was there because i'm not set up for night time vending. (lighting) Sold PP sammies, hot dogs, brats and hot choclate. Did OK.
Next night, broke out some halogen lighting and a sign i had picked up at a garage sale and sales tripled! 7 gallons of hot chocolate, about 100 dogs and brats and lots of PP. Sundays crowd was non existent and dumped 5 gallons of hot chocolate and bagged and froze all the leftover pork.
All in all a profitable weekend but way to much work for too little return.

Every new set-up is a learning experience and have lots of ideas for future gigs.

The only other vendor was an elephant ear trailer lit up with the neon signs and blinking lights. They sold watered down hot chocolate, stale dogs, nachos and your usual fair food. long lines all nite.:roll:
