Snack business is highly profitable especially when you have a greater number of people to supply to. The more product you produce and sell the more the money you make out of it.

Assuming you are able to supply to 15 people in a day and make #1,000 gain from each. It therefore means your gain in a day is #15,000 which is very commendable. As you continue in the business you will have increased number of places to supply to.

The profit can be more because different snacks have their different prices. Sausage roll can go for #100 and above while fish roll and egg roll can go for #50 and above depending…


Locate schools, supermarkets, shops and vendors to supply to. You can place a show glass somewhere and display your snacks for sale. I know of a lady who place a show glass of snacks in front of their house and was having good patronage. Most parents taking their children to school stops to buy. People started contacting her to produce for their occasion. She is now a known snack dealer from the comfort of her home.

Advertise your snack business everywhere to attract buyers. You may have to bake and give people to taste for the first time in other to get established buyers.
