You are serving about 150 sandwiches a Saturday. You've built a very good reputation! Nice Job!
I set up beside Kroger and the town population is about 5000 in Lexington about 9 miles from Fairfield. There is a Subway, Mexican, Wendy's, Italian, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and KFC right on the strip where I set up.
I think a lot of my success is that I don't set up every weekend. I use it when I am not catering and people come get it when they can. So it might drive my sales up for this reason. It is usually about once every 5 or 6 weeks.
