Here are a few tips to Help you get started and opening up

Equipment Prep

Check your numbers from before Covid closed everything down.

Clean & Test your equipment is running properly - If you need repairs we have a repair shop in Lawrence Ma.

When testing your equipment always do a few batches. You want to make sure that your equipment is in working order when you open. You do not want to loss potential sales

Check to make sure the equipment you have is the right size & capacity - example - Can you keep up with the demand or Do you need new equipment.
If you need help with the correct size you need we can help.

Stock up

Not only is equipment important. Supplies are also. Make sure to check dates on what you have, since being closed for so long some things maybe out dated.

Consider your sales potential when placing orders. This will insure you have enough supplies to meet your needs

Think outside your normal menu items to increase sales. We have many items that sell great at concession stands that you may not have thought of - click here

Make sure you have signs to advertise new and old products. Signs help sell

Keep spare parts that go from normal ware and tare on hand so you are never down and loss sales
