New to the food Concession Business Thu, 10/18/12 4:56 PM (permalink)
I am new to the food concession business  Frankly, just beginning.  I have no experience in the food business.  I have a list of questions that I've created, any answers both general or specific are appreciated.  I have the book "Food Booth" by Barb Fitzgerald and it has been very helpful.  You can probably see that some of the questions are general and may also show my lack of experience.  Also I'm sure there are questions that I don't have that I should.  Again, any help at all is appreciated.
