Pancake Feed

March 12, 2020

Opportunity: Who doesn't like Pancakes?! Pancake feeds are popular because they allow attendees to get good and filled up, plus you can offer so many fixings and trimmings to make it highly appealing to a wide variety of folks. 

Description: This is a fairly straightforward fundraiser, although there are things you can do to spice it up.  Making pancakes and bacon or ham, served with water, juice and milk is about as simple as you can get.  It should be an all-you-can-eat feed.

Revenue Strategy:  I would suggest avoid serving eggs because they can be temperamental. They can turn green, get cold fast, and there are so many variations that it opens up a huge can of worms. 

Upsells:  This is where a pancake feed can be spruced up. You can upsell a condiment package for an extra buck or two that includes whipped cream, fresh fruit, chocolate chip pancakes, or custom shapes. I suggest only offering one upsell that includes all those additions and a standard package. The nice thing is they can upgrade at any time during the meal. 

Concerns:   I would suggest avoid serving eggs because they can be temperamental. They can turn green, get cold fast, and there are so many variations that it opens up a huge can of worms.
