Recruit local food vendors

People show up for free food. so why not get food for free and establish relationships with other local vendors in the process? Ask pizza parlors, bakeries, and drink companies if you can hand out their products during the event. Again, businesses love to cross-promote. They may even advertise your opening to their own customers.
