How many different sizes of popcorn and soda do you sell?

We have small, medium and large in both. We did have 4 sizes in popcorn until last month when we deleted the "kids size" due to too many people getting confused and asking for small when they meant kids size..plus the tiny ones were a bugger to fill as we use paper bags

We have four sizes...Junior 16 oz, Small 22oz, Medium 32oz, Large 44 oz. Popcorn sizes are Junior 44oz, Small 85oz, Medium 130 oz and Large 170oz. Elderly patrons tend to purchase the Junior sizes, and the Medium size is the most popular out of the bunch.

My location is a drive-in, so this may not apply to everyone:

Our large popcorn (with one free refill) outsells our medium by a 2/1 margin. Our medium outsells our small by almost 3/1... probably because a 46 ounce cup does look comparably small.

It really depends on the movie, a Family picture we sell TONS of Med and Larges, but for a Chick Flick or Adult picture it swings more twards small/Med sizes...

I forgot to mention we also do the "Kiddie Trays" and with a Kids movie we move 100's of them!

You can buy the kiddie trays from your popcorn bag/tub and cup supplier. They come folded flat and you have to make them into little box-like trays--takes about 30 seconds per tray. There is an area to put in some popcorn (around 40 oz), a place for a small or medium cup, and a slot to put a small candy in. I sell them for $3.50 for small, which includes a small soda and small candy, and $4.50 for medium soda and a small or king size candy.

There are some other type trays out there, too. They fold up easily into a box with a handle, but I personally don't like them. They don't have individual compartments.

We do the Kiddie Trays with a small drink and I've been using a small mike & Ike candy, we have used fun Dips and Air heads and even small lemon heads but the assorted M&I seem to fit the candy slot better and most kids like them...

With the candy sm drink an popcorn we sell them for $2.50 so for familys with kids it's a slightly better deal then the $3 for sm corn and sm pop. though they get slightly less popcorn nobody minds.

the only negetive part is that you must have a place in your concessions area to keep the ready trays once you fold them.

with a decent film we easily can do 100+ for a show.

Popcorn Jr. #46, Small #85, Med. #130 & Large #170 all paper bags.

Soda 16oz 20oz 32oz(plastic car cup which can be refilled anytime for .75)

Kids pack tray. We use the plastic cup that you can buy to match. It prevents the kids from spilling and can be upgraded to a slushy for an additional .25 ( we sell a ton of upgrades and the paper version would not hold the slushy well)

Hello, I am new to the movie industry and I am currently looking to purchase a theatre for live acts. Well, not only did I find what I want, but the theatre also has cinema capabilities including concessions. The trouble is that I have to note the potential income the concession area brings in on a business plan. One confusing thing is the popcorn sizes. Here I see popcorn capacities of 46oz, 85oz, 130oz. Not for nothing, if these were actual popcorn weights, the 130oz size would weigh over 8 lbs!!! So something is wrong here. More then likely I am not reading it right. But I was wondering if someone could clear this up.

Thank You,
JG

Think volume measurements not weight. A cup of pop is 8 oz as is an 8 oz popcorn. Except that we don't sell anything that small in the theater industry. A better comparison is our 44 oz Monster size drink and our Small 46 oz popcorn. If you hold the 2 containers next to each other it is easy to get confused because they look almost alike. Keeps your new employees confused also if you don't stack them in different places.

The ounce measurement for all cups is liguid weight regardless of what is intended to be put in it. An 85 oz. container for pop corn will hold 85 oz. of liguid, but probably only an ounce of pop corn.
