Doughnuts at a festival

Anyone doing doughnuts at festivals, flea markets, etc. Wondering what to charge for how many doughnuts? The event starts at 7 a.m. so I'm thinking I can sell some breakfast. Thanks.

    It wasn't an event but this donut truck was on an episode of Eat St.

    Cute little babies...made with a Belshaw. I believe the toppings of that day were bacon bits & jalapeño jam.

    Price depends on cost & quality. Fancy or plain. Costco or private shop? Unless you also sell coffee, sales will be limited. Best way to find out? Try it!

    Man I LOVE those greasy little "lil orbits" hot from the fryer. I've seen them sell real well even without coffee, in the afternoon.

    I agree, the lil orbits are awesome. Checked into cost of their sytem. Ouch $$$$$$$$$ Not in my future plans since I am not vending every weekend. However, if I was vending all the time, I could see it paying for itself quickly.

    Watching the Lil Orbit or Belshaw machine is really fun. It's action attraction.

    there was a gal on this site that worked her local flea mkt serving ice cream, if I remember right. She then bought a Lil Orbit mini doughnut machine, sales sky Rocketed. My local farmers mkt had one at the end of last yr, I thought it would do well, but they started on the last day, will have to see if they return this yr. In Hawaii they have a Hot Molasada truck at the Flea market, it's real popular, but then again Hot Molasadas sell well all over Hawaii. How could anyone pass a up warn donuts tossed with Cinn & Sugar. I think its the perfect item for a festival, sell then in 1/2 doz or 1 doz size bags. They are easy to carry ad eat while walking around the grounds..................pnwc

    ...  How could anyone pass a up warn donuts tossed with Cinn & Sugar...

    How about making "chinese donuts"? They seem to be popular and they are very easy to make (fry up those cheap store brand "whomp'em-on -the-counter" refrigerated biscuits then  toss in cinnamon sugar mixture). My daughter worked as a hostess in a chinese restaurant for a while. That is how they make them. Most folks don't believe it. Too simple.
