Starting of with a borrowed BBQ Mark was dipping in and out of outside catering whilst running the shop & cafe. It wasn’t long before he decided to move away from the cafe and focus his energy on the great outdoors as he hit the road with Foodie Folk….
“I noticed as the outside catering side of things started to take off and get busier the cafe became more of a hinderance and I just didn’t have the time.”
“Mobile catering isn’t like a café or a restaurant where I have staff costs whether people come through the door or not.”
“Working the way we do makes it so much easier to manage the financial side of things.”
“With our business, I know in advance how many people I will be catering for and I price a job accordingly.
Foodie Folk meets Trailblazer BBQ
Whilst planning to invest in his own mobile BBQ/Grill a friend had spotted Trailblazer BBQ at a Greenwood School BBQ and fed the word back to Mark.
“I had a nosy on the Trailblazer website and went out to see one in person the following day.”
“After a discussion with Lester (MD & founder of Trailblazer BBQ) and seeing the machine in person I bought my first Trailblazer BBQ, back in 2015. The 600s Grillmaster.”
“Excited to kick start things with my new mobile BBQ/Grill I started focusing towards council events, school PTAs and other small events.”
