Preparations – Book Corn Roasting Events

Most states publish a calendar of events, usually online. With contact numbers/email addresses for organizers, concession bookers, and information. This is a very useful tool for inquiring about concession jobs. Don’t hesitate. Eleven months ahead is not too soon to inquire about an event.

Questions to ask:

  • attendance numbers
  • is anyone else roasting corn
  • size of spot and price
  • cash sales or tickets only

A good estimate of sales is 10% of attendance. This isĀ also helpful when ordering corn, scheduling help, ordering gas, and deciding whether the event is going to be profitable.
