Planning a Profitable Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser

I know Krusteaz Pancake Mix offers a partial refund of the cost of the mix after a pancake breakfast fundraiser. Does anyone know of any other companies that do this? Not just pancake mix, but sausage, bacon, juice, coffee, syrup, butter, and anything else that might be served at breakfast.


Our Applebee's Restaurant does the fundraiser breakfasts, but they get booked out within hours of opening their calendar and we missed out. Any other restaurants (we are in east TN) offer pancake/breakfast fundraisers?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Pancake breakfasts are pretty easy to organize and hold on your own. If you can get a facility with a kitchen, like a church hall or school cafeteria, you are away. Local stores and businesses will donate items or cash if you are raising money for a worthy cause. Perhaps this is easier in a small town, but we used to do a pancake breakfast for Education week, with only a silver collection. One of the staff got donations from local businesses, and then bought all the rest of the things needed, with the donated cash, from the local grocery store who gave a big discount on items ( and took back things that weren't opened like extra bottles of oil or pancake syrup). We even made a profit when we were "giving" away the breakfast this way!! We teachers did the cooking and the clean up. The local Elks donated the use of the hall since it was for the school. We did not have a commercial type kitchen in our school.


Our local volunteer fire department does pancake breakfasts as well. It is a good fundraiser to do on your own. Pretty much anybody can cook a pancake. Sausages are cooked ahead of time, early in the morning, and kept warm in roasters in the oven until they are put out onto the serving table.

Good luck.
