Re:Foot in the Door!
Well, even as a cocktail weenie day 1 went by well enough! Got setup in time for a 10:45am lunch shift. Had the guys from the warehouse as well as several of the truckers delivering there stop by. Stayed real steady. About 11:30 I went to check in with the Manager as we'd discussed prior. He asked if I could stay a bit longer, had about 20 more guys going to lunch at Noon. At 12:30 I was breaking everything down.
All told pulled in $150 on the first day. The Manager wants me back tomorrow. See how it goes and how the guys like it.
While I was there a mobile taco truck pulled into the lot for about 15 minutes. Served a couple of things then was gone again.
The manager asked if I'd consider showing up for the night crew about 2am. Understanding its the middle of the night he mentioned his crew of 40 + didn't have a lot of options, plus its their busy receiving time and they have 50 to 60 trucks delivering at this time as well. Once we see how it goes tomorrow I may plan on hitting a few overnights as well.
Give myself an hour and a half to setup. Today I had a bit less than an hour and felt rushed.
Sold a few more chips and drinks than expected with 'combo' meals but still not much of either.
Sausage -on-a-stick sold real well, cooked those on a griddle.
Polish, Brats, Hotlinks didn't move at all.
Any thoughts from the 1/4lb-ers?
