There are many elements necessary to make a food concession business run successfully. All of these components are important, but one of the most important is having a good location to sell from. There are two ways to run your business. One of the ways to make money in the food concession business with regard to location is to find temporary locations. The other is to find a permanent location. Both ways of doing business have been proven successful when chosen wisely and knowledgeably.

The first choice you have to make when deciding on a location for your concession business is whether you want to find a temporary place to set up or a permanent place to set up. Choosing a temporary place to set up can be a very profitable way to do business. Examples of a temporary location set up are fairs, carnivals, football games, and other annual, semi-annual, or monthly events. This is a great way to do business because many people do two or three of these events each month and make more money than people working full time jobs. Big events can bring in as much as $2,000, or even more. The sky is the limit. Many of these events, lasting for a weekend or a few days, can very well provide a month’s income.

To find out when and where local events are held in your area, you can visit your city’s or county’s websites. You can also visit the local chamber of commerce. The chamber of commerce can help you in your search for local events. You can even apply to join your local chamber of commerce, which can offer you many opportunities that only members get. In many cases, you can be put on lists to be asked to cater local events before other businesses are asked.

When you find out where and when local events are going to take place, you must then locate who is in charge of booking local businesses for the event. This information can easily be found out by contacting the local authorities of the cities in which the events are being held. There are many events that cater to businesses in the area before allowing a business from another area in to do business. This must be used to full advantage. Preferential treatment of locals is very commonplace in the local business community.

The other way you are able to do business as a food concession business is to find a permanent location and set up there on a regular basis. This can also be a very profitable way of doing business because repeat customers, when treated well, are very loyal. There are those who will come to patronize your business every day for lunch. Local workers and business people also become a large part of your customer base when you choose the right location.

A permanent location generally needs to consist of at least one of the following criteria. One, make sure your business is in an “easy-on easy-off” location. In other words, there is a safe place for your customers to both enter and exit easily. Two, if possible, set your business in a high “foot traffic” area. When people are already out of their vehicles and on their feet, they are much more likely to patronize your business than they are just driving by. This type of location may be in front of a large store or in a shopping center. Finally, get into a place that is located near other businesses, but that don’t have many restaurants to support the businesses. As was said before, local business people become a big part of your day-to-day customer base.

Whether you choose a permanent location or a temporary one, the food concession business can be a very profitable business. However, the location of your business is one of the most important things you will have to decide. If you are in a bad location, there will be no customers to attract. Without customers, there is no business.
