Let’s Get Corny
Corn is a quintessential fall food. You’re at the corn maze already, so adding corn themed foods to your menu only makes sense. There are a lot of options and variety to be had with corn. Here’s some fun ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
- Make the corn its own main dish by grilling corn on the cob and adding a variety of spices and flavors
- Serve freshly popped popcorn, kettle corn, caramel corn, etc.
- Bake cornbread and serve it with homemade chili
- Craft a corn salsa to compliment tacos, or serve it alongside chips for dipping
- Fresh vegetable pizza with corn, peppers, tomatoes, and goat cheese
- Corn chowder to help your patrons warm up after a cold evening in the maze
Corn is extremely versatile, so you shouldn’t have a problem creating a few corn inspired dishes to entice your customers!
Bring the Meat
Oktoberfest is almost over, but it always seems to spark a craving for bratwurst, hot dogs, and delicious meats throughout the fall. Brats and hot dogs are awesome food for a corn maze because they’re easy to carry around inside the maze, and depending on the toppings, they’re not usually too messy.
Fall Farm Foods
There are several classic foods that are well-known being used in fall dishes. Farm produce like pumpkins, squashes, and apples not only taste great, but look very nice in food arrangements. Upgrade your menu with items like caramel apples, pumpkin pies, butternut squash soup, and more. Creating comforting dishes on your menu will encourage customers to purchase more food from your trailer.
Keep Your Fingers Warm
As the night approaches, many clients will be looking for ways to stay warm as they explore the corn maze or peruse the festivities. Bringing hot beverages along can boost sales and satisfy warmth needs all in one! Hot cocoa, hot tea, apple cider, and coffee are always welcome. If you have your own killer recipe for any of these hot drinks, you can really blow customers away and start creating a buzz throughout the maze.
As you’re preparing your food trailer for the fall, hopefully you can use these ideas to maximize on the crowds at corn mazes!
