Concession Stands

Concession Stands are a great way to fundraise for your group. Concession Stands are allocated in the Spring by a number of different groups to their constituency. For more information on how to obtain a concession stand, contact your coordinating group.

Approval of a concession stand will be granted after successful completion of an SAOnline request (if allocated a stand). If approval is granted, the student organization or residence facility must abide by all merchandising policies. Unauthorized sales or sales outside authorized areas will result in the merchandise being confiscated and disciplinary procedures. Groups interested in selling “The Shirt” or other approved wearable merchandise at these concession stands should include that information in the SAOnline request. Members may e-mail David Mattingly with questions. All revenue from concession stands must be deposited, according to the process outlined in concession stand management training, on the first business day following the concession stand.

Concession Stand Management Training
If your group has been allocated a Football Concession Stand, or is on the waitlist, you must have at least one member of your group attend Concession Stand Management training (in addition to Food Safety Training).However, it is recommended that at least two members of the group complete this training. At all times at a concession stand, a Concession Stand Management Trained representive must be present. The training is intended to prepare the student who will be overseeing the administrative responsibilities for operating a concession stand. This includes, but is not limited to, submitting the SAOnline request for the stand, placing the food order from Catering, acquiring grills to be used at the stand, coordinating efficient operations throughout the stand operations, ensuring compliance with the cash handling and deposit procedures, and submitting the Concession Stand Summary Worksheet the Wednesday after the stand takes place.

Here are dates scheduled for Concession Stand Management Training for Fall 2015 will be posted during Summer 2015.

Specific games are listed for each date, but anyone is welcome to attend any session; attendance at one session completes the training requirement. Please note the location for each training session is in the Montgomery Auditorium on the first floor of the LaFortune Student Center across from Starbucks. Also each session is 1 hour long.
