I am planning on Vending the Cleveland Apple Festival this year in October and am trying to plan out how much food I will need to cook for the people. They said there was 7500-10000 people there last year. I am not sure that I believe that number. I have heard that you can plan on feeding 10% of the crowd. The menu we have planned is BBQ sandwiches, Slaw, French Fries to drink we are going to do sweet tea and lemonade along with some specialty strawberry lemonade. I am thinking we will do 5 oz sandwiches. What do you all think? How much slaw and french fries should we need? I plan to use the catering calculator for the meat and then adding a couple of butts to give us a little extra. We are also going to have the smoker on site spitting out that sweet blue smoke to draw them in. This will be my first vending attempt and I want it to go as smoothly as possible.
