Many drivers welcome the chance to stretch their legs while stopped at the gas station. They visit the restroom and browse the souvenirs and other items available for sale at the gas station convenience store. Give them more than they bargained for by adding one or two nacho warmers to the store. They can pick up a bottled drink and fill a bag or plate with warm nachos and some toppings.
A 100-quart nacho warmer is reasonably priced and represents a great way to increase sales. Purchase a few cases of round nacho chips, some toppings, and nacho bags or trays and you are all set. Thick nachos stay crisp even when topped with chili or cheese sauce. Customers will love the hot, crunchy snack that they can get from the warmer and top or dip with cheese or other items.
Some people go bold when it comes to snacks, so they will love a jalapeno cheese sauce. Mark the sauce containers so the weaker at heart do not receive an unintentional surprise. Keep chili warm in another compartment so those who want a heartier treat can help themselves. Customers will pile on the toppings and you can charge them based on the weight of their purchase.
Nacho trays are the perfect way for organized snackers to enjoy their chips. A separate compartment keeps cheese away from the nachos. Customers can dip each chip into the cheese container, taking only as much as they want. This is a great way for them to enjoy the snack in the car without all the mess. The youngest customers will find a cup the most convenient way to eat their nachos. Though they may want the zestier cheese sauce, give them a sample to try before they commit.
Some equipment can be used to serve nachos, popcorn, or peanuts. Gas station owners can change the sign on the machine to reflect what is being offered. A 50-watt heating element within the base keeps these products fresh and warm. With a large capacity, station owners can offer as much or as little product as desired.
Gas station owners may not realize that they can purchase the supplies for their nacho warmers in bulk. Cheese sauce, nacho trays, and even jalapeno peppers are all available in large quantities, providing cost savings. These supplies should last a while, but not as long as the high-quality warmers that hold nachos, popcorn, or peanuts.
