Make the Most of Your Concession Stand

A concession stand can make or break your skating rink or bowling alley. It won’t help your sales if your customers have to leave to feed themselves! Here are some tips for successfully running a concession stand at your family entertainment center.

First of all, advertise. If your customers and potential customers don’t know you serve food, they can’t get excited about it. Make sure to advertise not only that you have food, but also what kind of food you serve–are you mostly serving light snacks or more hearty meals? Customers will want to know so they can plan accordingly.

When planning your menu, select options that can be cooked quickly, so you avoid long lines of cranky customers waiting for food. It’s a good idea to cater to health-conscious customers by providing and advertising healthful options. A Quik n’ Crispy greaseless fryer will help with both of these–not only is fast and easy, it cooks foods with 20-40% fewer calories and fat than traditional grease frying. And foods will be just as tasty and crispy as they always are!

Once you get your QnC, make sure you make the most of it. Pick foods with a high profit margin, look into second (or even third) units, and make sure your employees are clear on how to clean the QnC to prevent flavor transfer. A good concession stand will bring your family entertainment center to the next level. Your customers will love it, and your business will reap the benefits!
