      Best selling products for UK schools

      My school has recently allowed students to sell appropriate items at school during certain times of day. I would like to sell food items in the morning and during lunch hour. Do you think this is a good idea and what foods should I sell?

      Selling food items at your school is quite the entrepreneurial venture. Here are a few ideas you could use if you want to sell food:

      ● Make homemade baked goods, such as cinnamon buns, sandwiches or croissants.
      ● If you live in London, you could buy bulk prepackaged snacks and drinks from Costco and sell them at an inflated price. Just average out the price from the retail bulk price, and sell them at maybe 20% more.

      Also, make sure you set up your selling site in a high traffic area to attract attention, and if someone buys more than 5 items, you could give them a 10% discount or something.

      There are also a lot of non-food items you can sell at your school. I am not allowed to sell things where I attend, but if I could, I would sell pencils and pens because I am constantly losing mine.

      You could definitely sell school supplies, earphones and phone cases.

      Research what items are in most demand or are most popular in your area and sell those items if at all possible.

      "earphones and phone cases." I think these are better to sell in the school.

      Selling food raises a lot of health and safety issues. If you sell food at your school, your school will be liable if anything happens. So you better talk to the people in charge first.

      In my experiences, selling stationery such as folders of various types and school bags(girls change their schoolbags at least 3 times a year) will work quite well.
      Basically anything that people change the most often.
