2. Sno-Kone® and shaved ice machines. An easy sell for outdoor summer events, these machines are a fantastic addition to company picnics, weddings, and even large family gatherings. A variety of flavored syrups are available, or customers can create their own, including adults-only boozy versions.

3.  Popcorn machines. Especially great for fundraisers or themed parties, popcorn machines provide an eye-catching display and irresistible aroma for attendees. Planners can add more to the ambiance by pairing the machine with a cart. Offer Mega Pop Portion Pack Kits to make operation simple for the end user.

4. Hot dog grills and cookers. Another company picnic favorite, hot dog grills and steamers are a low-effort way to provide food for large gatherings. Available as rollers, rotisseries, and more, hot dog cookers give customers a fun way to feed a group for a low cost.

5. Warming cabinets. If a planner wants to control cost and portions, warming cabinets are the perfect solution.
