Make Profits Sizzle with BBQ Food

Spring is the ideal time to start thinking about offering outdoor food options such as barbeques to customers.

Big Al's BBQBig Al’s Foodservice’s flame-cooked burgers offer a simple, worry-free way to offer barbeque food to customers whatever the weather.

“The Big Al’s range is pre-cooked, which offers peace of mind by removing the food safety worries often associated with barbequing,” says Kepak Foodservice’s National Account Manager Ed Robinson. “As the burgers are cooked over an open flame a delicious taste is guaranteed every time, and the products are frozen, which reduces waste.”

“As the nights get lighter and hopefully the weather milder, people like to enjoy outdoor occasions more and many will be seeking a food option that’s quick, tasty and filling. Barbeque-friendly food such as the Big Al’s range, which can be reheated from frozen much more quickly cooking a raw product, presents the ideal solution.

“You could also consider offering meal deals such as a ‘burger and a pint’ deal to boost both wet and dry sales.”

Big Al’s burgers can be served in a variety of ways to suit your requirements.

“You could add variety to your barbeque burger offering by adding lettuce and tomato, bacon, cheese sauce or jalapeno pepper, or cross-selling burgers with other barbeque-friendly foods such as corn on the cob or vegetable skewers,” says Robinson. “Alternatively, keep things simple – Big Al’s versatile burgers are just as delicious when served alone on a bun.”

Robinson says: “Big Al’s is ideal for re-heating on an outdoor barbeque but if the British weather lets you down just prepare the burgers in your kitchen and host an indoor barbeque, still complete with that flame-grilled taste!”
