Lately, all I want to do is make more money.
I know that is a strange lead in for a Whip It Up Wednesday but one it is true and second I saw something Monday that really sparked the connection between food and extra income.
After I got home from work Monday, I went to the 7-11 by our church. Here in the DC area the temp got up to 90+. At work the heat was stuck on and all I wanted was a Slurpee (at home down south it is an Icee).
On the door of the 7-11 was a sign that said ‘Brownie Madness or Extravaganza’. There was a horrible picture (I think it was just to close up).
Someone had talked the 7-11 into selling brownies for $1.35. The thing is they didn’t look that good. However, my new ways of seeing a hustle (or money to be made at every turn) is that even if the sellers used a box mix from the grocery costing $2, a couple of eggs, maybe milk or oil. To be conservative, the costs for a pan of brownies wouldn’t cost them more than four or five dollars. Let’s say 16 brownies per pan that is a profit of at least $10 or more per pan. Split profit 70/30 with the 7-11 people and the sellers still walk with a profit of $7 a pan.
Have you ever made food to sell? Would you have the nerve to ask the local convenience store to sell your products? Would you do sell food as a secondary source of income?
