Looking for advice on how you price or package like the snow cone juices and cups , cotton candy floss how do you price and how much of it do you give the whole cart or like some in a container?

You have to be competitive.  What are your competitors charging?  You don't have to be a low-baller thou.

 

When I started this biz, I charged for my concession machines, exactly what my competitors were charging.

 

In my experience, your customers aren't going to shop around for a low cost concession machine; it's an add-on item.

I never reuse cartons, I charge $15 per 25 servings.... for big events I give a discount if they need supplies for a couple hundred... most of the time they only use about 30-50% of the items anyway and return the rest.

Be Careful packaging your own supplies, if you don't have a certificate to do so, you can get into trouble.  And you cannot legally resell unused supplies. (not sure if that is what you are doing thou.)

 

In saying all that, I would save unused cartons and offer them to MY church as a donation.

 I never heard of this. So your saying if I buy my supplies for example from amazon and resell it to the customer. that's trouble?

Should I even sell supplies or let the customer get them themselves? Because I feel  I don't see a return on selling supplies unless I am not pricing them correctly.

Opening them up and making smaller servings, yes, you could potentially get in trouble for that.

 

But just buying the cartons, and reselling in their current non-opened state is no problem.
