We've got an in-store with a new client (a very important one) coming up in a few weeks and it's time to step up our game a little. We typically offer the choice of mini tasting spoons or a 1-ounce cup with a tortilla chip in it -- fairly common for most vendors. But this is a different type of place, with lots of fancy food and gourmet items -- the buyer basically told me we would need to offer something a little more upscale than plain old tortilla chips.
I have no problem with that, just want to keep my costs down -- we can't offer something that is too fancy/expensive or needs much prep time. It needs to go with hot sauce -- I don't want grazers coming up just for free food that have no interest in the hot sauce. And it needs to be something we have a lot of, this place has tons of foot traffic.
For our serrano lime sauce, I was thinking guacamole -- cheap, premade and works with the chips. We add our sauce to the guac to spice it up and tasters can try that if they don't want the spoon.
We also will demo pineapple habanero and garlic habanero sauces -- trying to think of something the might work with those.
Anybody have any good ideas?
