Getting around Street Eats at WM, Lowes etc using Charities. Sat, 07/20/13 5:46 PM (permalink)
Seems I've heard Wal-Mart, Lowes and Home Depot will let carts set up with out going thru Street Eats if the are tied in with a charity. Can anyone confirm this? I'm more than willing to donate a chunk of change if I can make some.
This town I'm in has no foot traffic except for Wal-Mart. I've got a local cause I would love to support, but I've got one closer to home, which is my tummy, utilitys, etc.
I want to give to my community, but they have to give to me first.
Also wondering what % to give.
Well, I got the topic started.

    I think you have to BE a charity.
    like a church or charity first. or some non profit group.

      I have 2 funnel cake vendors who I know do Wal-Mart. Both have said it has to be for charity and they each give 20%.  It may also be up to the local manager, really don`t know, but know its being done.

        Why do they call them funnel cakes?
        they are sort of flat.

                most walmarts out here have mcdonalds in them.
                it might work if you sell a food they dont.
                like a italian ice cart.

                  My W/M has no Mc Dee or Subway, nor does the Lowes.
                  Thinking my charity should approach them.

                    OK. The stuff is dropped from a funnel (although often a pastry-type bag is used now) into the hot oil making a free-form lattice pattern.

                            He yanks all chains and hi-jacks threads. Adds very little to this forum, tho he thinks he does.
