Cajun Creole Roaster Types and Prices
There are only a few types of roasters available. Gas and Electric. Store or large production. Portable or less portable. For a store the most popular choice is an electric 110V machine that sits on a counter or table and does around 7 pounds per batch about every 30 minutes. For shops that allow gas there are a few available and for the outdoor or indoor farmers market or swap meet, the choices are any of the above if electricity is present or a gas bottle is permitted.
The point is that the roaster is the big draw to your location to showcase your product. The size is not as important as just having one to get attention. Once there, it is important to have a variety of product such as plain roasted (that you will be roasting), and possibly a variety of nuts such as salted-in-the-shell, a favorite for many, Cajun style (our invention) and a hit wherever seen, and even peanut butter or sweet style sugar coated nuts. We have the nut butter grinders that can make the freshest peanut butter on site and keep them coming back time and time again.

The best way to grow your nut sales is to have one (or more) of these commercial grinders in your nut section. New customers become repeats when they try the freshest nut butter available. There are thousands of these across the U.S..
They may be purchased as a turnkey program from us through HAMPTON FARMS, in which you save $600 and just commit to buying your nut butter stock from us, or you can buy them outright and use your own sources for the nut stock. Most customers after researching and seeing how successful the program can be, prefer the program.
From: $1695 (if purchased as a program ASK) – to $2295 as a stand alone unit
The following is a general breakdown of the potential profitability of roasting your own. Roasting on site is a great attention getter that will bring customers to your location. The aroma, sights and sounds of an operational peanut roaster will help create traffic. The great taste of fresh roasted will bring them back.
Once at your store or stand, it is wise to carry salted in-shells and perhaps our seasoned varieties (they are great!) Keep in mind the roasters can only be used on raw (unsalted in-shell peanuts). Use a warmer to put salted in shell or Cajun in shell peanuts on display.
And a 4 ounce bag is a good measure for a customer to buy, it could be enough for two. That size could also be sold for up to $2.00, but we find that customers like high value and will likely buy 2 or 3 bags.The easy way to do it is find a cup that measures the amount you wish to sell and use it to fill the bags. Your average cost per bag should be around $.32 and yield a profit of $1.68 per bag and $6.72 per pound. So a $2500 roaster would pay for itself after selling less than 375 pounds of peanuts. Sounds like a lot of peanuts? Actually some of my customers do that per day and more at their locations in flea markets, but you will have to work a while to find the right location that will be that good of a turnover.
