I can only use myself as an example. The two times I worked as a hawker at games the first time I was on min wage and the other time I basically was an independent contractor who bought his tray off goodies (usually popcorn and peanuts) and I bought the tray regardless of if I sold them all. Most Arenas and stadium buy in large bulk that reduces the overall cost.
I know at the arena in Vancouver, the beer cost $7 bucks but the actual cost of each pint was $1.5(when you factor in taxes and other things)
