St Patrick’s Day is renowned as a big day in the diary for licensees – especially as it falls over a weekend in 2011. It’s the perfect time to take advantage of a busy pub by offering quick and easy, hot bar snacks to customers and making a tasty profit at the same time.
The Big Al’s Flame Cooked Range of frozen microwavable beef burgers, chicken grills and BBQ pork ribsteaks provides quality but convenient menu option that is ideal for both mixed and wet only establishments.
The range reheats from frozen in under two minutes and features a unique flame-cooked taste and appearance, perfect for those occasions which require a fast turnaround without compromising on quality.
It’s the ideal range for establishments which don’t have kitchen facilities or the budget to employ a chef – all you need is a microwave and bar staff who know how to use one! Why not offer pint and burger deals or for those who want to make more of a meal of it – just add garnish, cheese, relish and a portion of chips for a smart snack that hits the spot.
The range can also deliver a cash margin almost double that of a pint of bitter and because the range is frozen, there’s no waste.
Hundreds of outlets have already introduced Big Al’s pre-cooked frozen beef burgers, chicken grills and BBQ pork ribsteaks – with excellent customer feedback.
Kepak Foodservice’s Business Development Director, Aoife Kenny, commented: “The simplicity of the range makes it ideal for pubs with little or no cooking facilities and the fact the items are pre-cooked means there’s no worry of undercooking the product. Bar staff can be easily trained to re-heat the product and add garnish if required. The Big Al’s range cooks so fast – there will be no timing complaints as the meal will be ready by the time a pint of Guinness has settled!”
The Big Al’s range is backed by posters, menus and price cards enabling stockists to set their own prices.
