    You know, I read the answers and they have nothing to do with your question.

    To answer your question, I would go around to businesses and ask them if they are interested in your sandwiches, maybe leave a menu and a sample..

    I hope that helps you..

    First of all, I think you have a great idea. However, if you have not done so already, please check with your local county on the following:

    1. How to get a business/pedlars license. Even though the food is being made from your home, I believe there are zoning laws that you have to follow.
    2. Information on getting a food handlers permit.
    3. Information on insurance in case someone gets sick from eating your food. I’m sure your food is really tasty, but you need to cover yourself.

    Now in regards to marketing and other helpful hints, here are some ideas:
    1. Visit local schools and see if they could use your services.
    2. Set up a local cart at one of the colleges. College kids are always hungry and will eat almost anything cheap.
    3. Look in your paper for local events like festivals.
    4. Make flyers and make biz cards. Pass them out where ever you go.
    5. Try and make your sandwhiches different then the rest.
    6. Set up a local cart at the beach, local parks, downtown, the shopping malls. Just make sure you have the permits to do all of this.
    7. Add other stuff to such as chips, potato sald, coleslaw, drinks
    8. Start a website that tells al about your business
    9. Start a blog about food, but do without blatantly advertising your business
    10. Use free online ads sites such as
    http://www.kudzu.com
    http://www.inetgiant.com
    http://www.backpage.com
    http://www.netclassifieds.com
    11. Try selling your sandwhiches at local sporting events
    12. You can also try selling your food at flea markets.
    13. You could also give your sandwhiches to homeless shelters and other charities. You could then establish relationships through volunteering.
    14. Finally, come up with a catchy and easy name that people will remember.

    I hope this information helps and best of success to you.
