Steve – question: Having a hard time finding large enough potato chip bags to sell for a dollar each, all 1.5 oz size, don’t think people will buy. What do you say?
Thanks, Mike in Ohio


Hey Mike,

I sell the 1.5 oz size for a buck on my cart.  I agree a dollar is a bit pricey but it’s part of a bigger strategy…

My dogs are three dollars, drinks are a dollar, and chips are a dollar. That’s five bucks total.

I offer a meal deal for $4.75 and that is what moves the chips.

OK readers – let’s hear your answer to Mike’s question in the comments. The most helpful tip wins a two pack of chip clips (see the theme here?).

Let’s hear your answers folks!
