I want to make a pitch to supply a Book shop/cafe with items. They hace no chillers and seem interested in single servings. I have a few items I have in mind but not sure how long they last without refrigeration.

So far I have thought of

Flaky pastry items
Chocolate truffles
pecan squares

If I could get anymore suggestions I would be most happy. What do you think I can package them in so they are ready to serve at the cafe with minnium exertion by the staff at the Bookshop/cafe.

Oh yeah I live in the tropics. The store will have a/c but it would be turned of for the night. Wooried that the items I select may not have a good shelf life

Thanks a Million Guys

If there is no AC at night, I would skip the truffles. You may end up with puddles.

Are they putting the items in a display case, or will they be in baskets on the counter? At the local Barnes and Noble Bookseller, the Starbucks they have in there does not package anything which is in the display case, just what is sold from containers on the counter.

You should check with them to see what type of packaging they will be required to use by the local health department, before investing in items you might not need.

Good luck on your pitch!
