hey Jody: they are pretty much like dogs as far as income . Great location great income. not so great not so great.
But here in fla you avoid all the regulators, and the expense that goes with that. Gotta pre cook them at home, tho they take too long to do on loc.
Down on the corner where I used to do $30 a day in dogs, the peanut guy does $30 in peanuts, with out the hastles.
some guys do $200 a day here,or so they say.
but here if you sell drinks with them your back on the meri go round.
The negitives are heavy compitition, and peanuts are on a rapid rise in price, and are hurt a little by the depression. the crop in Alabama is trashed so I look for the price to shoot up this fall. Also green peanuts are only afailable in the fall and winter, unless frozen. I heard more then one claim they went through over 10 ton of peanuts in a year, but haven’t seen it, and dont see many Lexis, or Lincolns towing peanut rigs. a quart baggie 3/4 full sellsfor $5 here.
you can find recipies on google there are many, the biggist mistake is too salty, gotta be just right. to get repeats.
Gregg, cant believe any one from ma even knows what they are lol.
I don’t know much about them. I love them. I’ll only get them to eat in the car when I’ve got a rental, they are so messy.
I’ve noticed green peanut wholesalers all over GA. Good luck.
I wonder what the good places use for a spice mix for the spicy?
Anyone have any experience with boiled peanuts. We have a local antique shop wanting us to set up on weekends during the fall and early winter. We are thinking about serving hot baked items such as cookies and apple cakes, hot apple cider and maybe boiled peanuts. The local peanut vendors are getting between $3 and $4 dollars a bag. Supposedly you can get 25 / 30 servings with 25 pounds of green peanuts boiled.
