Light up your Sales !

Date released:  29th October 2013

There's nothing like wrapping up warm in hats, gloves and big coats, huddling together with friends and family, and watching fireworks shimmer across the sky.

Bonfire Night is one of the most special events in the autumn calendar, but saying 'ooh' and 'ahh' and drawing patterns with your sparkler can be hungry work !

So if you run a pub, restaurant, community centre or other catering business, make sure you've got plenty of hot, satisfying fodder on offer.

When it comes to Bonfire Night food, you can't go wrong by keeping it simple. Baked potatoes are delicious, filling, healthy and you can make a great profit, so don't miss our amazing deal on a box of 50 spuds.

One of the best parts of Bonfire Night is biting into a juicy hotdog laced with sharp mustard, or a burger smothered in ketchup. We've got great offers on a wide range of catering supplies, including hot dogs, sausages, finger rolls, burger buns, burger slices, chips, onions, ketchup and mustard. You could use outdoor barbecue facilities (if you have them) to speed up cooking.

It goes without saying that it's really important to offer a wide range of drinks on Bonfire Night. You'll need Fruit Shoots and Ribena for the kids, wines and beers for adults, and perhaps even champagne for couples enjoying the romance of the evening.

We've got some cracking offers on kegs of Carlsberg, Carling and Strongbow, and for something really seasonal, take a look at our deals on Green Goblin cider and Hobgoblin malt beer.

So what about the fireworks themselves? Well, Health and Safety is OBVIOUSLY really important, so perhaps you could either hire a professional company to set off fireworks at your venue, or try to 'piggy back' on a local firework event, offering food before and after.

However you celebrate Bonfire Night, make sure you have enough 'hands on deck' to feed the hoards : even the most beleaguered publican deserves to take a minute to watch a few pretty fireworks themselves !
