Re:How much food for Events
I did a couple of auctions for $150 gross, then the auctioneer said she had a bigger one coming up. I bought more stuff for the next auction. By 2:00 PM my wife had gone back to the market two or three times for soda, dogs, buns etc. We did $556 that day.
Last saturday my commissary is a catering service for parties, wedding you name it. She has a big parking lot and was catering a Veteran's sponsored car show. She thought she wouldn't be able to handle the crowd and asked me to come help her out. I loaded a bunch of stuff into the van. I sold $75 had to find a freezer for 90% of my dogs. I was so disappointed I left stuff that I forgot all about and it spoiled in my van. This is a very tough business to figure out. I would not take bunches but have a step and fetch it with a fast car to help me out by running to the store. Be careful. It a big guessing game.
