Reliable July through September Route
We have been building this Turn Key Business for 30 years. In that time, we have established a very predictable lineup of small town events, county fairs and the like that have rewarded us with a profitable bottom line. These busy four months produce an income that some take a whole year to make. An ambitious new owner can take this excellent foundation and grow the business by extending the work season or starting up a second route.
Two concession trailers: The main trailer is in operation every week during the season. Our second trailer is only utilized one week currently. They each have equipment to serve hot, deep fried foods and refreshments.
One vending cart: It is perfect for certain situations. A cart can add character and accessibility if lines grow long. You can also use them at inside locations. eg. Early in our business we operated within our local mall.
One multi-purpose truck: The truck is a crucial element in this business. Besides carrying extra supplies and a freezer for ice, this vehicle tows the concession trailer to and from location and sleeps up to six people. It is an all-purpose tool that saves time and money.
One freezer trailer: There are two freezers fitted to this trailer. We use it at a few of the busier events during the season.
Complete Training and Events Manual
My wife and I plan to travel with the new owner to each event for the first season. We will help position the trailer and make introductions with the event administrators. We will do hands on training of the new staff to enable them to produce each product efficiently and properly. My wife has been an excellent bookkeeper and has produced a complete events manual that spells out: needed supplies, set up times, signage, etc.
When you buy this business, what will you do with your 8 months of free time?
The essential information on our food concession business has been listed for you to review above, but besides the bullet points, I believe it could be helpful for you to know why I love this business.
My family has depended on this business as our sole source of income since 1987. We started out with two young children and, in the first 6 years, added on two more. It worked well raising our children in this hard working environment. They each were crucial as we grew our business to what it is today. They learned important skills and enjoyed their almost daily access to shave ice and fresh squeezed lemonade. I would even go so far as to say, a growing family is ideal for this business.
What I really loved about this business was that we were able to make what we lived on for an entire year, in four month’s time. That leaves eight months available for whatever purpose you want. We were able to homeschool our children and take road trips around the United States. You could work a second job, go back to college, travel or just kick back.
We are only selling our business now because my wife and I are getting too old to comfortably continue. I am 70 years old and have grandchildren that I would rather not miss for even four months.
My wife and I are planning to travel to events with the new owner the first business season . We will introduce them to the administration for each event. We will make sure the trailer is set up properly. We will help them acclimate to owning their own business.
Another factor is that we by no means exhausted the potential growth of this business. There is ample opportunity to expand by operating more weeks, developing a second route or even going south during the winter.
