Food Concession Menus - Know Your Market
By Barb Fitzgerald of FoodBooth.net
In the food concession business, when it comes to menus, it can be a challenge to identify and pin down your market. Because your market is, literally, a moving target.
In one day your customers might be attendees of a farmers market in the morning, and Harley Davidson riders, enjoying a swap meet, in the afternoon. The following weekend you might have your concession at an art and wine show. Then, two days later, you find yourself setting up at a five day county fair.
I don't know any menu that can maximize sales at every event. Cotton candy is for kids, and fajitas are preferred by adults. Event goers admiring art while tasting wine are not likely to buy a corn dog. But, they might buy chocolate dipped strawberries or oysters. The reverse is true for people attending a motocross race.
Featured Events on FestivalNet!
Did you know that it is a free service for promoters to list their events on our site? We do this so we can provide you with the most events on one website. We take pride in offering all types of events - from street fairs to craft shows, music festivals, fine art fairs, themed events, expos, & holiday fairs.
Some promoters want more exposure beyond the free listing and opt to become a Featured event - whether they want to reach more attendees or get more vendors to apply, we praise these festivals for going the extra mile with their event-marketing on FestivalNet! Take a minute and peruse current featured events any time by bookmarking our Featured Events Page!
The FestivalNet Giving Tree
Minimizing suffering and poverty by restoring sight to thousands is the mission of Seva.org. The non-profit believes repairing sight breaks the poverty cycle, leads to education, opportunity and empowerment, and builds a better tomorrow for millions. An estimated 253 million people live with vision impairment or blindness. More than half of them are women and girls. Thankfully, 75% of all vision impairment can be prevented or cured. In fact, half of the world's blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that can be reversed with a 15-minute operation. The non-profit Seva works to ensure that sight is for everyone.
Our IT guru, Richard chose Seva to receive a portion of FN’s gross profits this month. See all our apples on our Giving Tree page!
