Ladies and gents, we’ve got the concession candy fundraising tips to make even Donald Trump proud. Sure, your concession candy stand may not rake in the millions, but if your goal is to raise money for the team or for a worthy cause, we know you certainly want to raise as many dollars as possible! We’ve supplied many a Little League team and school sports team with affordable concession candy – you know, Now and Later taffy, Swedish Gummy Fish, Tootsie Frooties – the works! We’ve got the experience and inside info on how you can ramp up concession candy sales.
#1: Market The Sports Game.
The first step to getting more candy sales is…getting more people to the game! Outside of parents and friends of the players, few people often know what the Little League or sports game schedule is – so how can they come buy your concession candy? Make posters advertising the team’s schedule and promoting the next game and ask the coach or players to get permission from the school to hang them around. Tell your co-workers, and ask the players to tell all their friends and families. The more people, the merrier – in fundraising!
#2: Can You Eat One Piece of Candy? They Can’t Either.
Eating just one scoop of Gummy Dolphins is pretty much impossible, right? Give each person who attends the game a raffle ticket that they can redeem for one piece or scoop of concession candy. It’s a great way to get them coming over to the stand, and chances are high that they’ll buy more.
#3: Explain What The Fundraiser Is For.
People typically feel more compelled to buy when they know their purchase is going towards a worthy cause. Post flyers around the candy stand explaining exactly what the money is going towards, and what it can help, buy, or do.
#4: Variety Is The Spice (And Sweet) Of Life.
Think outside the concession candy basics. Think Razzles, Pop Rocks, Cotton Candy Lollipops, and Sour Patch Kids for an added dash of variety to your concession stand!
#5: Make Your Concession Stand Mobile.
When you think of a major league ball game, chances are the call for “Peaaaanuttttsss” comes to mind. Add this same much-loved element to Little League and sports games by having trusted parents or school board members walk around with candy to sell. Simply place various candy varieties in a flat box, with tags noting their price. Gotta perfect that “Gummmmy Fishhhhh” call!
