Ok the time has come, you receive your concession trailer. You have gone thru it and see it is exactly the way you ordered it and are satisfied. Plug it up while it is at your home and fill tanks with water and check electrical and plumbing to make sure everything works properly.
Now contact your health department and confirm your appointment date that you set earlier. Get the health department inspection out of the way as soon as possible.
Once this is done pull it to your location and begin set up which will consist of which direction trailer will face then get it level. Once this is done put stabilizer jacks under it in each corner to keep it from bouncing when you move around in it.
Get an electrician out to hook you up to electricity if you had a pole and meter put in, if not plug it in to your power source. Make sure everything is turned off before plugging in to power source. Then one at a time about 30 seconds apart turn on your lights, refrigerator, freezer, ovens, etc to make sure your power source can handle the load.
After all those check out check your plumbing again to make sure everything works properly and that you have no leaks. Now you can turn everything off except refrigerators and freezers. These will need to be run at least 24 hours before stocking and also to check temperature settings. (Go to Wal-mart and get a refrigerator thermometer and freezer thermometer for each one you have in your concession trailer.)
Put a thermometer in each unit and check the temperature the next day and adjust accordingly. Your booklet from health department will tell you what these temperatures should be for each unit. Once you get the temperature right you can begin to stock, but not to far ahead of opening day. I would wait till the day before.
Date each item you put in refrigeration so you can keep the old and fresh separate.
Make sure you have your advertisement banners and signs out. Have at least 2 trash containers ready to place outside by serving windows during business hours.
Now you should be ready for your grand opening and step ten…
