Concession Trailer Equipment Overview

An interesting and potentially profitable business for entrepreneurs is a concession business. But as with any business, success often depends not only on a person's willingness to work, but on the concession trailer equipment used. Maybe you wouldn't think that equipment matters all that much, but it can play a vital role in the success of a concession business.

You may think that starting a concession business is going to be a piece of cake, but you have some decisions to make first. Is your business going to be a food or drink business? If a food business, will you sell hot dogs, popcorn or maybe sweet treats like snow cones and cotton candy? Also, some trailers come with equipment built in – specifically for one purpose. And with some, you'll need to purchase additional equipment.

Once you've decided on this, you can move on to purchasing a concession trailer and concession trailer equipment. Let's take a look at some of the best concession trailer equipment you can have for running a profitable concession business.

Cotton candy is one of the most popular items you can sell from a concession trailer. Kids love it and moms and dads don't like to say no on a family day out – so it sells very well. Cotton candy is a great way to attract people and once they've bought some cotton candy, they may be tempted to go for more treats! Cotton candy machines are relatively inexpensive to buy and easy to use.

Hot Dog steamers and grills are another sure bet for a concession trailer. Hot dogs are a favorite food at fairs and carnivals. They are also favorites of people looking for a quick and tasty lunch. Hot dog steamers heat up the hot dogs with steam and can be used also for warming buns. This is very convenient – you can do everything with one piece of equipment.

Hot Dog grills are as popular as steamers, but instead of steaming the hot dog, they roll the hot dogs over a grill. Some prefer this method for cooking hot dogs. Buns of course have to be heated in a separate piece of equipment – perhaps a steamer to keep the buns fresh and soft – not dry. Both steamers and grills present the hot dogs in a way that attractively displays them to customers. While both steamers and grills can be pricey, they will pay for themselves several times over very quickly.

Popcorn is another one of those concession items that you should consider for concession trailer equipment. Everyone loves popcorn and it's quite easy to make and dispense. More and more commonly, you can find popcorn poppers on concession trailers and popcorn being sold by the “buckets”.

If you're considering selling sweet treats, why not put a shaved ice/snow cone machine on your concession trailer. These are perfect on a hot day at the carnival or the beach, and snow cones do great with ice cream, cotton candy and other goodies.

Depending on what you're plan is for your new concession business, you will want some, or possibly all of the concession trailer equipment that is listed here. Your initial investment can potentially be paid back in a very short period simply by setting your trailer up at fairs, carnivals, community celebrations, the beach and wherever else you can imagine.
