Big Al's Flame CookedVenues can boost profits from bar snacks by stocking solutions which can be adapted to suit multiple occasions throughout the day, according to Big Al’s Foodservice.

[intro]“Outlets can maximise profits by offering customers quick, cost effective and satisfying food options,” says Aoife Kenny, Kepak Foodservice’s Business Development Director.[/intro]

“Customers are still watching the pennies so offering deals such as a burger and a pint can be very profitable, and because Big Al’s pre-cooked burgers are frozen, they save on waste too.

[intro]“The Big Al’s range can deliver a cash margin almost double that of a pint and, as the products are pre-cooked, the food safety worries that can go with cooking from raw are removed. Big Al’s products are cooked over an open flame resulting in a great taste, and are consistently high in quality.”[/intro]

The Big Al’s range comprises flame cooked burgers, chicken steaks, BBQ pork ribsteak, meatballs and mesquite chicken wings.

“Stocking products which can be cooked quickly at any time of day is a great way to make the most of multiple occasions and boost profits,” says Aoife. “Big Al’s burgers, for example, can be microwaved from frozen in under two minutes to provide a delicious, filling meal or snack.”

Big Al’s products require no special storage or preparation equipment – they can be heated quickly and easily in a fryer, oven, griddle, BBQ or microwave.

Aoife concludes: “This means outlets can have them in stock for when food sales are required, and quickly produce a delicious bar snack to satisfy hungry customers at any time of day.”

 Big Al’s Top Tips For Boosting Sales

Brain food – Prepare a batch of Big Al’s Burgers and sell them during a quiz night break.

Fuel footie fans – During matches, have burgers ready to circulate at the bar at half-time to meet the demands of the rush of hungry customers.

Sunday league refuel – offer to take pre-orders on burgers for when your local football team comes in after their Sunday morning match. They’ll appreciate the stop gap before heading home for Sunday lunch.

Saturday Night BBQ – whatever the weather! Advertise a BBQ weeks in advance without having to worry about the weather. Big Al’s is ideal for re-heating on an outdoor BBQ but if the British weather lets you down just prepare in your kitchen and host an indoor BBQ.

The Big Al’s range is backed by posters, menus and price cards enabling venues to set their own prices. For more information on the range please call 01772 688 300 or visit
