Nachos have become a favorite of many Americans, whether at a local movie theater or the state fair. There is something that is unbeatably delicious about fresh, hot tortilla chips smothered with nacho cheese. It seems that everyone loves nachos, from the very young to the young at heart.
In order to yield the greatest return on your investment, it is important to choose a nacho stand that can handle a high amount of volume. A nacho stand is one of the most popular concession stands at a carnival, fair, arena, stadium, school, theater, and other types of public venues.
Factors to Consider When Choosing a Nacho Stand
The main factors that you want to consider when choosing a nacho stand is your budget, the amount of volume you expect to serve, and the space that you have available. Also, you must take into consideration the cost of the nacho stand and the equipment that you need to properly run the stand.
A successful nacho stand has a nacho cheese warmer, nacho cheese, nacho cheese dispenser, nacho chips, nacho chip holder, and other condiment items, such as jalapenos or salsa. It is important to consider how much each of these items costs when determining your budget and return on investment expectations. Also, take into the consideration the cost to staff a large nacho concession stand.
Incorporating Varying Sized Nacho Stands
A large nacho cabinet has a sleek look that is terrific for catching the customer's eye at snack bars and other large venues. This type of nacho stand is designed to warm both the tortilla chips and the nacho cheese, and due to its capacity, it is best suited for a busy movie theater, fair, carnival, stadium, or an arena. Expect to spend $1000 dollars when purchasing a large nacho cabinet.
If you are servicing a smaller venue, consider a midsize portion nacho cheese warmer, which can hold 60-70 cups of nacho cheese. The midsized equipment is half the price of the larger nacho stand, but is still capable of keeping warm both the nacho cheese and the tortilla chips.
There are smaller nacho stands that are designed to just keep the nacho cheese warm. The downside with this type of stand is that it is only capable of keeping up with a very small volume of customers. In order to be successful, you want to have sufficient nachos to keep all of your customers happy. This is why it is so important to choose the right nacho stand from the very beginning, as you must view the equipment as an investment into your future business growth.
Whichever nacho stand you choose, it will certainly pay for itself in increased volume and sales. For Americans, one of the greatest indulgences is warm tortilla chips coated with delicious, mouth-watering nacho cheese at both smaller and large venues.
When you are ready to choose a nacho stand, keep in mind the type of venue you will be serving, your budget requirements, and the amount of staff that you have. A nacho stand is the perfect addition at a state fair, carnival, arena, theater and many other types of venues increasing your menu offerings and sales volume.
