Working for Peanuts

Working for Peanuts or Making Peanuts Work For You

Make a Pile Pushing Peanuts – Purchase Your Own Roaster

What makes this opportunity special? Purchasing your own roaster allows you to both make and serve the original health nut: The Peanut. Owning a roaster allows you to actually roast peanuts on-site in front of your customers and passersby.

Now We’re Talking PEANUTS

The real advantage of the roaster is what we call the 4 A’s of concession and Flea Market success, which you get with a roaster as the focal  point of  your operation:

  • AROMA – The customers will be drawn by the smell of FRESH ROASTED NUTS
  • ACTION – The nuts turning in the drum make a good visual show and that is what draws them to the booth along with the aroma
  • AUDIO – Another way to get attention is the sound of them flipping around the roaster
  • ANTICIPATION – Waiting for the batch to finish and taste the fresh warm in shell peanuts


Read the facts and watch the video for more info.

Your Return on Investment

The payback on a roaster will naturally depend on what you pay for your peanuts and what you sell them for. But as an average, you should be able to pay for it in anywhere from 350 to 500 pounds of peanuts sold.  That can be anything from a good weekend at a fair to a few months in a store location. 

Either way, what it is intended to do is get attention and make people keep coming back to your market for the uniqueness of fresh roasted peanuts, time after time.
