Interesting finding this thread here. Me and another Brethren are teaming up to compete together this summer and were JUST talking this morning about maybe trying our hands at vending at a couple of comps this year too. We're not sure exactly what menu items but are fully aware that we'll need some help working the counter and serving. Our significant others and other relatives are gonna be that help.
Not sure how big the menu should be. A giant menu just seems to mean more work and all, but may attract more customers. The turn ins come first, but we're trying to figure all that out....
Bottom line.....there was a team last year who came in 9th at a comp and made about 13 times more cash than the GC did because they also were vending. THAT is what I'm talking about!
