Re: Ogden Winterfest 2011
It'll be down town Ogden. Jan 28th we'll be ther all day cooking and start serving around 5pm to 9pm. Saturday we'll be serving 7am to 8 or 9pm. tons of entertainment.

Ogden is bringing in hundreds of truck loads of snow. Snowmobile drag races, skijourning (people being dragged behind horses on sleds), Tobagan races, and a ton more. Alot of thing for every age going on. Here's the links:

Thanks again!

Re: Ogden Winterfest 2011
How do you make anything selling a 3 dollar smoked pulled pork sandwich?

Well, we made money but that deal will never happen again. It was more of a promotional decision by us to get people to try our food than to make money.

Re: Ogden Winterfest 2011
Sometimes you have to right off profits for advertising. What hurts is when you sign on to an event, pay the $250.00 a day for your 10X10 space, $125.00 for a health permit and cook enough meat, buy enough buns and stuff to sell 1000 $6.00 plates. (sandwich, slaw, beans and chips) Only to find the booth next to you manned by volunteers (church, Boy Scouts, cheerleaders, etc) selling BBQ pork sandwiches out of a pot for $2.00.

Re: Ogden Winterfest 2011
As far as undercutting booths around us, if that is what you are implying, the only people at the Winterfest that took a hit was us. The owners are also the operators. We setup, slept in a car so we could cook all night at the site of the event, served all day, got a little bit of sleep that night just so we could start all over the next day. If we did all the work ourselves we can put whatever price on our food we want.

Re: Ogden Winterfest 2011
But if you're not implying us as being the bad guy, then I know where you are coming from. We have been to events where we have bought, what we thought, was the right amount of food and drinks just to find out that the local church is giving out free drinks and the fire station is selling hamburgers and hotdogs most of the day for 1 or 2 dollars. Our meals were $6 dollars with potatoes and a pickle. The sandwich alone was $3. Coke was the sponsor so vendors couldn't sell drinks.

Wo man. Not that first thing at all. That's not me. Sorry if you somehow got it that way. I'm a big believer of capitalism. I've given way a ton of products for promotion. Not just in the food area. Hope we see you a lot around here in the future.

Re: Ogden Winterfest 2011
No problem. Forums are an easy way to put the wrong attititude with peoples posts. I'll stick around here for sure. I've found a lot of good advice from good people.
