Extra time as pubs back speedy serves during football fever

BB Foodservice has revealed demand for chips has rocketed with pubs backing quick serves as the nation is gripped by football fever.

Tony Holmes, sales director, BB Foodservice (Bestway Wholesale) is advising pubs to ensure they are well stocked for the England match tomorrow [3 July]: “With football fans hopeful for an England team back to its best against Columbia tomorrow, we can expect crowds of punters packing into pubs to soak up the atmosphere.

“With record crowds to feed and water since the World Cup started last month, our sales show that pubs have been getting through quick serves such as chips at a rate of knots. I urge pubs to stock up now to ensure that supporters do not go hungry.”

Before the tournament began, BB Foodservice launched a guide with top tips and sizzling deals. To download the guide, visit:
