Here are a few notes:
I started this trailer in 2008. It has been a great business to me, however, my son, 23, is doing his own thing now and my daughter, 17, wants her weekends free... ahhh, to be young again.
After fine tuning the business, I got it exactly where I wanted it. As you can see, we really only sell specialty drinks and snacks. With this menu, we maximized profit. I basically concentrated on music festivals but did other things as well. While other vendors were selling a meal (BBQ, hamburgers, chicken) for for $6-9 each, we sell our drinks for about $5. We may have about $.80 in a drink while they have $3-$5 in food and paper product cost. We have no food waste. We make it as we go. Additionally, they have many employees... I have 1 and myself.
Another point is that we do NOT need to be inspected by the health department. This
can be HUGE! Besides not needing to pay $50-125 per event for a permit, the big draw is that we do NOT need to wait to be inspected to make and sell our product. We are always the first one to sell... even to other vendors. Also, we are not required to have 4 sinks and various other equipment.
Since we sell coffee and hot drinks, we are a favorite in the morning hours. We slow down through the lunch hour while the food vendors are booming and then we are running wide open ALL afternoon! At that point it is mostly cold and frozen drinks. Again, we slow down for about an hour during dinner and then we are busy again all evening. Food vendors clean and close up early but we are open to the end. As the evening cools down, hot drinks become popular again.
We have had success getting into most events because we do not compete with other vendors, offer a quality product, great presentation, a fun environment, and are earth friendly. Festivals and patrons love that!
I will be happy to answer any questions.
New entry... Thank everyone for their interest. Here are some of the answers I have been asked.
Yes, I will give up all rights to use the name and graphics. I no longer need them and will give my graphics guy the ok to release anything to you.
Yes, the graphic wrap is in excellent condition.
Yes, The graphic wrap can be removed easily and the trailer is white. It should be in great condition since it has always been wrapped. I will be happy to do this AFTER purchase is made.
Yes, the banner and the menu board is included. The menu is dry erase so that you can change pricing depending on event.
No, I really don't deliver. I will be happy to work out some terms AFTER you view it in person and pay for it. However, I do not want to drive hours away for someone to view it.
I hope this helps. Thanks!
