Many people are starting new ventures selling premium sausages from a van, trailer or stall. Street food is particularly trendy nowadays and gourmet sausages are all the rave now. In this blog post we invite you to take a look at a few things prior to ordering big bulks when you're getting started.
If you're interested in our premium wholesale products please visit our testimonials page to find out what our customers say about us.
Starting Your New Catering Business Selling Premium Sausages
Words like ‘hip’ and ‘upmarket’ (versus the regular ‘burger van’) are very much in. See this interesting article by The Guardian. New owners are in the lookout for quality products and they tell us that The Sausage Man looks like the right place to go to. We agree!
1. Contact Us for a Chat
The first thing we encourage you to do is to contact us prior to purchasing your first order(s). We know a bit about premium hot dogs and sausages since we’ve been importing gourmet high quality products from Germany for quite a few years now into the UK market. We distribute/deliver to many different catering businesses, from street food vendors to top restaurants so we would be able to give you advice regarding what type of products you should be trying out in terms of the audience you’re aiming at. It is good practice to also read about the subject and learn what makes your customers tick.
We could also help you regarding the amounts you should be contemplating as well as product range, wholesale cost, shelf life, storage, availability and ordering times for prompt delivery. Take a look at our brochure (available on the menu above) as we can provide you with a wide range of products, including baguettes.
2. Try a Sample Box
We offer sample boxes to food catering related businesses (please not they’re not available retail). We custom pack these boxes according to your order; these samples are very good for you to get acquainted with our products in terms of taste/flavour, looks/texture, etc. You can make more informed decisions once you’ve tried out our products. These boxes are not free of charge but they’ll most definitely be worth ordering because you’ll be able to check different products in one go without having to order our minimum amounts.
3. Variety, Variety, Variety!
That’s right – keep your products varied for a while until you see what sticks with your audience. Some people love our cheese sausages while others prefer a good old traditional bratwurst. Maybe you’re wanting to prepare delicious German dishes (we definitely can provide you with many different options) or you just want to have the possibility of offering your customers something other than pork based sausages and hot dogs (beef, turkey, vegan, etc). Yes, we can supply you with all of these different products – again, we encourage you to download our brochure and take a look!
4. Custom Sizes? Not a Problem!
Some catering businesses require different sizes when it comes to the sausages they offer in their menus. We’ve been offering this service for a long time now: tell us what sizes you’re needing for your catering businesses and we will make sure to go to extra lengths to provide you with exactly what you need. Call us or contact us for a chat and we can take it from there. Don’t forget about dietary requirements like allergens. If you’re interested in any of our products please make sure to ask us about this.
