Summer is Coming (we hope!) – Choose the Right Bag for Concession Stands and Food Vendors

While we may still have several inches of snow on the ground – and broken records for low temperatures this weekend in Green Bay, we know that it won’t be long before summer will be here. That means now is the time for concession stand and food truck operators to plan for summer farmer’s markets, sporting events, and festivals. WCI offers a full range of concession supplies for packaging all types of food.

For food stand proprietors evaluating their summer concession needs, there are many options available. Sizes and paper substrates vary as well as options for stock designs and bag construction. There are ways to save on costs – including taking advantage of stock printed bags or ordering in bulk to leverage volume pricing. Many times you can purchase one bag size to use for many different food items.
