Convivio Says NO to Covid!

“Since the purchase back in July 2020, I haven’t stopped, nearly every weekend there has been a booking.

All that anxiety about the purchase has dwindled away I now know I have made the right choice!”

We have been pleasantly surprised to see multiple caterers come to us for a Trailblazer BBQ as they seek to start or expand their business amongst the Covid-19 pandemic.

Martin from Convivio Catering came to us in July as he wasn’t letting COVID ruin his plans to expand his outdoor catering business.

A few weeks later we decided to catch up and hear a bit more about Martin & how things are going since purchasing the Trailblazer 350 Club.

“I’m a family man with a private chef business, I have been in the catering industry for over 20 years, starting at places like Harrods and the House of Commons. After leaving these I then decided to run my own private chef business, catering for clients from 2 to 25. This was proving fruitful, but it only seemed to be a seasonal thing, with most of my bookings towards Autumn and Christmas.

I spent what felt like weeks looking for the perfect BBQ, the perfect all in one package. To be honest, I wasn’t sure what it was that I wanted, which made it harder. All I knew was that it had to fit in the car as I had hired a few gas BBQ’s which were a nightmare for space

After searching and scrolling, I spotted Trailblazer BBQ on social media. It was exactly what I was looking for. It had everything that I needed including the massive WOW factor!”

“I was unsure initially about the purchase as we had had a massive uncertain time due to Covid upon us, this had caused a massive slump in private bookings and I didn’t know if spending that sort of money was the right thing to do. With the backing of my wife, we decided to go for it, I spoke to Lex, who ran through everything with me and helped me decide to order one.”

“Since the purchase back in July 2020, I haven’t stopped, nearly every weekend there has been a booking, from bookings of 10 to bookings of 40 guests. All that anxiety about the purchase has dwindled away I now know I have made the right choice…. The only issue is… have I made the right choice in size!!! Should I have gone bigger hahaha.”

“COVID has ruined so many lives and so many livelihoods…. It’s unimaginable what people are going through, but we need to remember is, there will be light at the end of the tunnel.

Just like so many in the hospitality industry business was hit hard, bookings stopped, the enquires stopped, life stopped limited incomings and still plenty of outgoings.

When the restrictions began to be lifted, slowly and surely the phone calls came, the enquires began to come through… why?… because of the Trailblazer. I could offer suitable social distancing BBQs all in the comfort of the homeowner’s property, will full care taken by myself and my clients and the limited number of guests, people will be able to get back out there and start having a social life again.

We will flourish.. we will survive!
