There's an Easier Way to Get Your Concession Supplies!

How to Stop Making Endless Supply Runs

Is your concession stand an organizational nightmare? Running out of items regularly, unable to plan for shortages, spending too much money on gas to get to your local big box store? If this sounds like you, you’re not alone: many school fundraisers struggle with concession supplies at their snack stands.

Big box stores can be great resources, but the problem is they’re not designed to be full suppliers.

They’re great in a pinch to replenish a needed item or two, but you don’t want to have to run back and forth frequently to pick up supplies and hope they’re in stock.

Run Your Concession Stand Fundraiser Without Wasting Resources

Time is money, especially when you’re running a concession stand as well as a household. Constant trips for supplies not only waste gas and keep you away from your duties at the snack bar – but they also keep you from your family.

With a true concession supplier like Gold Medal, you can reorder supplies regularly and set pre-determined pickup dates for your items, or even get them delivered right to your stand.

No more driving across town at the last minute when you really don’t have time.

Successful Fundraisers Choose a Partner, Not a Vendor

When you go straight to the source of concession equipment and supplies, you get access to personalized consultation from an expert in the industry. As your representative learns the ins and outs specific to your concession stand, he or she will make individualized recommendations based on what you need and what your customers prefer.

For example, your Gold Medal rep will be able to offer advice on choosing the right amount of products to order and how frequently to reorder. He or she will have knowledge of your past purchases and can offer insights on what seems to be working well and what could use some rethinking.

Gold Medal has been in the concession industry for more than 85 years, and we have unique insights that come with experience. We want to share our insider knowledge with you – contact us today and learn how we can help take your concession stand fundraiser to the next level.
