Booker Wholesale and Makro have won a contract to supply food to Enterprise Inns, the UK’s largest leased and tenanted pub company.
The UK’s leading food wholesaler will offer a wide choice of ingredients and non-food products, as well as support, to all Enterprise publicans across England and Wales.
By visiting one of 200 branches or via online ordering publicans can select from thousands of items, from value to premium to suit all tastes, budgets and businesses.
Food products include fresh meat – which can be cut and packed the way publicans prefer through a butchery service – fruit, vegetables, crisps and snacks, bakery and delicatessen, frozen food and dairy.
Catering utensils and disposables are also available, along with cleaning and hygiene products.
Enterprise sales and marketing director James Armitage said: “We’re delighted to have Booker Wholesale and Makro on board to bolster our foodservice offering alongside our other providers. All Enterprise publicans can take advantage of its services and offers.
“This is a significant development which will bring huge benefits to our publican’s businesses, and we know many of them out there will be keen to take advantage of the support Booker Wholesale and Makro can offer to help them grow their food sales and profits.”
Booker Wholesale and Makro will also offer recipes with cost-per-portion, suggested selling prices, and gross profit calculations. It also has a dedicated team of catering development managers on hand to provide menu advice and support through other offers, including free delivery for tobacco products and on all orders (over £100 excluding VAT) and free used cooking oil collection.
Stuart Hyslop from Booker Wholesale and Makro said: “We are delighted to be partnering Enterprise Inns with their publicans’ food offer. I am confident we have the choice, price and service to help grow their sales and profits, and am looking forward to serving them. I would encourage all Enterprise publicans to call into their local Booker branch to find out more.”
Booker Makro will be present at all six 2016 enterpriselive trade shows, which will be staged at venues including London’s Olympia; Elland Road, Leeds; and Coventry’s Ricoh Arena; between February 23 and March 10 next year.
