Question Help with concession stand food ideas for bball game

We are hosting an all day basketball event and need to run a concession stand.

What I need are your ideas on what you like to eat at those type of events - hoping to find something new that I didn't think of.

We do this every year and want to make it better than before ykwim???

I have been in charge of many concession stands.
If you are doing morning this time of year you really need
coffee and hot chocolate.
We have sold donuts and also packs of poptarts for the people
that get there early.

nachos are always a hit.
hot dogs
candy bars
popcorn
frito pie if you have someone willing to make chili.

It really depends on your facility.
We have sold pretzels before also.

Our concession sales personal size pizzas from Pizza Hut. They have some sort of deal with them...not sure what though.

Sorry, not much help.

See if you can make a deal with the local Chik fil a if you have one near.

Blow Pops
Popcorn
Nachos
Pizza
Hamburger
Hotdogs
Chips
Gatorade in various flavors
Soft Drinks
Water

You don't want to do to much because you don't want to spend out more than you make and have alot of leftovers.

I would love to have homemade items from the Gramma's but it isn't allowed. Health department won't allow any homemade goods.

Here is what I was thinking about doing:

Walking Tacos - would have to ask the cook to come in on her day off and cook unless you guys know of any premade good tasting taco meat??? Does it even exist? I know Lloyd's has the bbq beef premade in containers but wasn't sure if someone has taco meat like this.

Subway Party Platter - cut up into single serving sizes from local Subway

Hot dogs

Candy bars

Pop

Coffee

Gatorade or Powerade

Water

Popcorn

Chips

Rolls - Sam's has the cinnamon rolls individually packaged or muffins

Apples

Bananas

Cookies - from sam's

Does this sound like enough variety? Keep the ideas coming. Maybe someone will change my mind. I don't want to repeat the same ole same ole. We did this one once before and it went over well that we ran out of the walking tacos and subs. That year we also did mini carrots in ziplocs with ranch dip, gogurt. We are limited in items - since we cannot technically "cook" anything.



We will also be hosting a tourney in Feb so any left over napkins, coffee, etc can be used then (not the food of course)

I worked at a bowling alley snack bar for years, and the one item I sold tons of is Hot pretzels. (especially with cheese!!! LOL!!!) we did them in a microwave. I found this to be true this past year when I worked concession stand for DS little league.

And yes, I am pretty sure there is premade taco meat. Never tried it though.

Thanks everyone for all your input. This coming weekend is the day of our first hosting this season. Since it isn't a tournament I opted out of the walking tacos and subs. Hopefully the hotdogs and everything else will be fine. It should be over with by 1:30. If anyone else has any more suggestions feel free to pm or post.

I run a candy stand for my DD basketball games, I have a griddle which holds about 30 hotdogs, and I keep adding them as needed, also, a crock pot with taco meat for tacos in a bag, if you can take a microwave, make soft pretzels, you can also make ham bbq's, meatball sandwiches, get a deal from a local pizza sop and have them deliver as needed. Gatorade, water and some sodas....candy priced to sell!

If you did want to sell meatball subs, you could buy the frozen pre cooked meatballs, put them in crock pot with pizza sauce. Serve them on rolls, and sprinkle with mozzarella. If you have any refrigeration (mini firdge)........you could sell string cheese! That's a good thing for those playing

I used to play softball, in a major way........3/4 teams at a time, and I miss playing tournaments. Get some fruit, oranges, etc. Also, I'd sell some powerade, and some of Gatorade's G2 product. Those playing don't really need soda. Sell soda, too. The spectators will want those.

Big Soft Pretzels
Sam's has them for 5.99 for a box of 20. Sell them for a buck each. It's always one of the biggest sellers.

Cotton Candy - Fresh Made or Pre-made

We decided to stop making our own Cotton Candy and go with one that is already pre-made called Fluffy Stuff. I am hoping for big things this year for our Concession stands at 4 Little league Parks. I called a place I found online that Charms referred to me. The name of the place is Nationwide Candy. They agreed to give me a 5% discount because of our volume. The cotton candy that we are buying is at NationwideCandy.com
Do you think we are doing the right thing by switching to a pre-made cotton candy? I sure hope so. I think it will be cleaner and easier.

I do concessions for my kids swim teams, and the biggest sellers for us are:
Walking Tacos
Hot dogs
Chicken wild rice soup, or a Home made Pasta w/ roll or breadstick

We have found that by offering good food at these all day events, it keeps them there spending money, not running to fast food.
Also I am a big stockpiler, so I always have stuff to make some kind of a great tomato sauce based pasta w/meat for very cheap. I will make a huge roaster full for $15 or less, and then buy Walmart bread or rolls, give 1 piece, and you can easily charge $3 or $4 per styrofoam bowl. Also sloppy joes w/ chips and a pickle is a great one. Sometimes pizza by the slice if you can get a great deal, but I have found that good homemade food in adition to the regular treats sell really well. Word of mouth spreads fast!
