Concession Food Equipment: What You Need to Know
Our concession stand equipment category contains everything from corn dog deep fryers to the plastic cones needed for snow cones and everything in between. Here you'll find whatever concession supplies you need to start your stand and keep it running. Concession stands can be very profitable in the right circumstances, as the raw materials for serving fan favorites, such as hot dogs, are incredibly inexpensive. Couple that with a ready-made audience for fairs, sporting events, or other large gatherings, and it's no wonder concessions stands do such good business.
While fairground favorites – hot dogs and cotton candy – have strong profit margins, most concession stands require high customer volume to achieve their profit goals. That means adding concession stand equipment that can keep up with, or exceed, your expected volume. You'll also need concession stand supplies that can keep pace with your equipment.
What concession equipment should I choose first?
To outfit a concession stand, you first need to understand what sort of food your customers will be looking for and which of those you can readily provide. We carry equipment for most concession stand favorites, including:
Once you've determined which concessions you'll offer, you can navigate the appropriate category to browse the different concessions supplies available for these foods. Because most of the concession equipment we offer is small compared to standard restaurant versions, you should be able to offer several different types of concession snacks to your customers, which can expand your target demographics. When allocating space to different pieces of concession equipment, make sure you factor in the utility requirements of each piece. The product specifications pages for individual units list the power required to operate them; compare this against how much power you can provide.
