A Rendering of a Concession Stand Before It's BuiltThings like layout, cutting the right deal with Big Soda for fountain equipment, a proper POS system, signage, menus, and method of operation. I'd make sure to involve DOH in this as you want compliance from the beginning.

It's really about not just finances, but providing the best service and product to users over the long run. Let's hope Council action is a step in that direction.
