Does anyone have any information on dip mix businesses? A friend of mine is looking into starting up this type of business. I see people have booths at craft shows all the time. They sell the dry mix in small bags, usually 3 for $12. You just mix it with a cup of sour cream or mayo and it's done. I'm sure they get the mixes in bulk. I've seen a few websites, but not sure if we're looking in the right place.

Does anyone have any experience in this type of business?

Thanks!

We also have dry dip mixes. Perhaps you have seen our products at the craft show in the bags with the red label.

In addition, many of our seasonings are available in the larger pantry staple bags where customers can save up to 80% off the individual price.

Thanks everyone ... I know she has looked into a few of the party plan companies, but she not really looking to be a consultant. She's looking to purchase in bulk and sell under her own company name. I appreciate your help[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Karen,
The Gourmet Cupboard does allow retailers/restaurants to buy their products in bulk and resell to the public.

I'm not sure what you mean by "sell under her own company name."

Are you asking if she can rename the mixes (as if she made them)?

Let me know if I can help.

Marketing dip mixes at public events is very popular with Watkins.

Hi, have your friend contact me directly if she needs advice on starting her own dip mix business. You can sell dips at local craft stores, convenience stores, mom and pop stores, etc...
That's how our business took off only it was with cookie mixes. Our dips are our own recipes also. We have consultants who join our company and sell our products just at craft fairs and they earn 35-50%.

So there are two ways of doing a dip business, join one of our food companies listed here and don't worry about the headache of licenses, ingredients, and labor making the dip mixes. OR If she really wants her own business she can do that too. You just have to be creative in how you market your products and make sure you are in compliance with your state, city or town as far as labeling and such. I can go into detail if you contact me through our website though.

Good luck and let us know if we can help.http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley1.gif
