I'm up to 19 different candies in the case,

The ideal number is the number YOU want, since the place is yours. This has been discussed here before, some people prefer large selections, others prefer smaller selections. Personally, I would have a smaller selection, for the very reason you suggested, it may slow down your concession line if people take too long to decide. Look at your sales, and see which items don't sell that well, and eliminate them. Eliminate items that are basically the same thing,gummy worms and gummy bears etc...Eliminate ones which you don't make as much money on.

I think more important than total number is the price levels. Fewer options at the lower price levels.
Small 5, Med 8, Large 12, Personally, I wish I could get down to around 20.
But it really depends on your theatre, clientelle, etc...

Twenty sounds good to me. I have more than twice that. I am eliminating most of the small ones as they are sold out, trying to get the inventory down.

Wonder if anyone consolidated their candy selections after this thread started, lol.

We have 16 candy choices.
Twizzlers, Goobers, MilkDuds, CookieDough, Snowcaps, StarBurst, JrMints, M&M Peanut and M&M Plain, Raisinets, Skittles Org, Reeses Pieces, Jolly Rancher Gummies, Sweetarts Reg & the mini chewy kind, and Dots.

We also serve Jumbo Pretzels (with choice of Mustard or Cream Cheese), Icees, Jumbo Pickles, and occasionally Pizza, (popcorn is a given).

Our revenue on concessions runs about 40-60% of ticket sales.

I have 13 candies plus Sliders, ice cream novelties, corn dogs, hot dogs, pretzels, nachos and the usual popcorn and six sodas (the Pepsi line). My concessions sales exceed my ticket sales. Oops! I for got to count those we have on the counter. There are 20 candies total ranging in price from 25 cents to $2.

25. Happy with our selection. Our distributor doesn't carry tropical dots anymore, though, and those are my favorite.

I a;lways liked Slap's approach... treat it like a candy store... more not less... and other stuff than candy/ popcorn/sodas/ etc.
