Street festivals

How much would you charge for at a street festival:

pulled pork sammy, baked beans, slaw? $7.00?

pulled pork sammy? $4.00?

bowl of chili? $3.00?

polish sausage with green peppers and onions? $3.00?

Our street festival is coming up and I have done fund raising for our local swim team all these years. Now that my girls are grown and off the team I am looking at making money. So any help would be great.

Prices look good to me. Only thing I would possibly change is the platter to $6.50, but $7 is still a good deal. When are you doing this, I might come down and buy a platter.

Don't change the platter to $6.50. Then you will be scrowganing for change all day! If they don't buy it at $7, they won't buy it at $6.50

Well then people will question why they are paying $3 for beans and slaw.

Bill, I think your prices are all low. We vend at the Harpoon BBQ contest every year and charge $5 for a PP sandwich. I get the bun's at Cosco and put as much meat on as I can.

We also charged $5 for a sausage sandwich. I trimmed spares into St.Louie's and found that you get about 1# meat from each slab of ribs. For the sausage I just mixed my regular rub with the meat and stuffed so my food coat was essentially the cost of the buns, peppers and onions.

Watch where you buy the buns, Cosco sells them for 1/2 the price of a grocery store.

Thanks to everyone who posted. I think that I will up the cost of the PP sammy and the sausages. Just got another application for a wine festival in Orange VA on October 27th if anyone is interested in coming.
