I have the opportunity to get some nice cotton candy machines for almost free. im considering getting them and starting a small cotton candy business around them

I would advertise myself, make brochures and cards, maybe fliers. I'd make a little cute cart that fits in my van with lights and an umbrella. get a cool carni outfit and charge like $100/h at kids birthday parties and bar mitzvah's. Eventually, i would try to get a spot at small festivals and events.

What would i need besides an LLC since im selling food? Could i get sued by assholes for something stupid?

It seems like such a cool life, to be the cotton candy man.

i would like it to go in that direction, but realistically i dont have a lot of money to pour into this and at least until i get a few jobs it would be pretty barebones flavor wise, since the normal blue & pink sugar can be had on amazon, as well as the sticks and bags for very cheap

I just want to get up and running and im really mulling this over, it sounds awesome, i could work like 3 days a week at my current job, no problem, and devote fri-sat-sun to the cotton candy business.

Im pretty crafty so im not worried about the cart, and im not totally broke so i wont cheap out on the umbrella and my outfit. im just worried if people would really hire some random guy to come to their backyard and make cotton candy for their kids. I would try to promote myself to the corprate world as well, but realistically how many job could i really line up?

i would need 5+ a month to make it worth my while. is it possible? i have the drive, ive always wanted to start my own business.

sorry for typos, im kind of drunk.

advertise on craigslist. Also you can get an agent, who of course would take a fraction of your payment - but steady work.

Bless you, OP.

Also, advertise for shitty overpriced hipster gimmick weddings. Could probably scam those people in to paying up to 300-500 an hour.

I wonder what kind of insurance you'd need and what kind of licenses you'd have to get to serve food... best look into that crap.

I would also recommend appealing to hipsters. Kid shit is a giant trend among young adults right now. If you have two braincells to rub together, develop some complex flavors that you could sell at a premium to them. Like "organic all natural free trade matcha green tea cotton candy", they'll eat that shit up for fat $$$$
