Default First time vending!

Mike and i have decided to expand our horizons a bit, we've been selling our BBQ supplies at a couple local farmers markets and have noticed a call for some food!

Applied for a TFP (temp food permit) on Monday, cooked butts and ribs on Friday (nice having that comm. kitchen) and set up EARLY Sunday morning.
Had meat back up to temp by 7:30, inspector walked thru at 7:45, passed with flying colors and were serving by 9 am!

Our goal was to sell 50 PP sandwiches, 6 slabs of ribs and as many combos (chips and drink) as we could by 2 pm.

Ended up selling 42 sammies (many combos) and all the ribs by 1:00 and that was a SLOW day as far as people coming by the market!

Handed out lots of cards and even made a few sauce sales!

What a great experience! Planning on the next 3 weekends for a little larger crowd.

Thanks for all the help from this forum! Did i already say i love my job!
