Well its offical been opened for a little over 3 months now and have a good little customer base.
 
Have employed a student to work the booth (As booth are legal and carts are not ) monday to friday 0600-1000 and am getting quite a few sales. We are offering 5 flavours daily and these change weekly, importing add's 75% to the price per box but it still works out about $1.93 a bag of 2 which we sell for $4 heated. So not major profits but its a good side earner as I still work monday-friday.
 
Been getting a lot of comments from people asking us to expand to more american food and snacks so as far as prewrapped, no heat/cool (Apart from drinks) "junk" food would you recommend?
 
Basically we are not allowed to process any food, only heat up pre-cooked food that does not require cool storage. Was thinking about Twinkies, snow balls and choc bars. But what are some other "American" options to offer?

    Congratulations Pop Tart ummmm.....Booth!

    There's a shorter sell by date on these products vs. Pop Tarts so it depends on your supply to sell window but these are some other snack cake brands that are very very popular in the NYC area. New York ex-pats will know & love them...

    Drake's just made it back to the shelves last week after a year absence...and we are happy to have them back. Especially the coffee cakes which would be a very popular seller for you.

    Keep us posted on your progress!
