Cook?s Direct Announces Important School Fundraising Tips to Make Concession Stands More Profitable

Cook’s Direct Announces Important School Fundraising Tips to Make Concession Stands More Profitable










Warrenville, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2012

Cook’s Direct, a leader in high quality foodservice equipment and supplies, has released vital tips for school fundraising in order to boost the profitability of concession stands. Cook’s Direct is a longtime leader in the foodservice industry, and has built a reputation for supplying only the highest quality equipment, supplies and advice.

For any concession stand, variety is one of the most important considerations. Stock a selection of the most popular fare, but keep prices reasonable. The company points to the most popular fare at sports fields as: nachos, popcorn, hot dogs, pickles and sunflower seeds, among others. Cold and hot drinks are also vital – coffee, sports drinks and soda are the most popular. In addition, it can be tempting to stock too much food, but it is important that food stocks are kept as low as possible without the danger of running out.

According to Cook’s Direct, one of the most important things for any concession stand is to have the right equipment. Concession stand fare consists of hot dogs, cotton candy, nachos, popcorn, pretzels and Sno-Kones. For hot dogs, the company recommends a roller grill capable of cooking 18-24 hot dogs at one time, and keeping a supply of foil hot dog bags on hand for packaging. Warmers are also excellent options for schools to invest in.

The right cotton candy machine will also be important. For smaller operations, an entry-level model is ideal, but for larger concession stands, a higher-voltage machine with a larger bowl is ideal. Cook’s Direct recommends a specialized pizza/pretzel oven for making pretzels on site, and a pretzel merchandiser can keep those pretzels warm and arrange them attractively for customers.

For concession stands serving nachos (perhaps the most common sports field fare), Cook’s Direct recommends having a 12-15 inch nacho merchandiser and a cheese warmer with a pump lid for easier dispensing. The highest quality concession stand equipment and supplies can be found on the Cook’s Direct website.

However, boosting concession stand profitability requires more than just the right food types and the right equipment to cook, package and serve that food. To ensure that a school’s concession stand is actually turning a profit, Cook’s Direct recommends using a profit calculator, which can help calculate daily profit simply and easily.

The concession stand also needs to reflect the team’s colors to remind customers that a purchase from the stand is in support of the school.

Best Dog house ever

Blaze passed away in april 2011, rest in peace blaze we love you, we just got Drake our boxer last week and is now enjoying this house, which is now painted and has a back vent..

Summer Temperatures – Prevent Heat Stroke

 

Summer means vacation! Whether you’re really planning a trip, or it’s just a vacation of the mind, you’ll want to consider a couple things before all of the fun begins! If you have a pet or pets (which, we’ll assume that you do because you’re reading this) you’ll need to remember a couple things to make their summer an enjoyable time too.

§  Let’s go for a ride!

This phrase has a euphoric affect on my cat. Our cat loves to lay across the dashboard and peer at where we were going while enjoying the view, the sun, and the air conditioner! What wonder…all of her favorite things!

Take into account however, that when you take your pet on a road-trip. That cars can increase in heat very quickly. Make a rule never to leave you pet in a parked car. If you make a standard rule, you’ll be far likely to break it. And if you never break that rule, you’ll never have to live with the regret that you caused your own pet harm. On a cool day, the sun can raise the temperature of the interior of your car 120o in just a matter of minutes. Even with the winds rolled down, if there is no air ventilation it will still get too hot for them!

§  The 80o Rule.

Whether inside or outside, realize that this key number will save your pet a lot of grief! Keep this number in your head always, and when you realize that the temperature is getting a little warm, do something about it. If you’re outside, find your pet shade and something to drink. Be considerate of them, they deserve it!       

If you’re planning on leaving your house for more than a couple days, you might consider changing the thermostat setting before you leave. Consider, though, your cats needs before you change it. Cats do not have very efficient cooling mechanisms. In the wild, when a cat doesn’t like something or a temperature, they will move. If you cat is shut up in your house, they will not have the ability to change their environment. Remember that anything over 80o  will be uncomfortable for your cat.           

§  Keep ‘em Moving!

Also, remember to leave access to different parts of your house for their comfort. On a normal day, your cat will change position to find a sunny at a window, or sit on the tile in the bathroom to cool off. Give your cat access to your house. This will allow everyone concerned to truly enjoy the time off.

§  Protection!

As much as you consider protecting your own skin from overexposure to the sun’s harmful rays, consider that your pet may need protection as well. If your pet has short or light colored hair, their skin can be damaged by the sun much in the same way that you can be. They can suffer from sunburns, peeling and ultimately cancer.

§  Water, Water, Everywhere!

One of the few ways that we have to cool our bodies is through water. We drink it to cool ourselves and to properly hydrate ourselves, so that we can release water in ways to cool our bodies. Keep water available. If you’re going go away, have plenty of water sources available! Keep a little water in your sinks, extra water bowls around.

§  Be aware of heatstroke!

If for some reason, you realize that you might have missed a couple things, or maybe you had an emergency and had to leave quickly look for these symptoms when determining if your pet needs attention for heat stroke.

  • Body temperature of 104-110F
  • Sticky or dry tongue and gums
  • Dark or bright red tongue and gums
  • Staggering
  • Seizures
  • Bloody diarrhea or vomiting
