As a successful restaurant owner of the Kitchen Cafe in Letterkenny, Pat was always on the look out for ways to add value and growth to his cafe chain. However despite having being a BBQ enthusiast, Pat had no intention of adding an outside catering aspect to his business until he unexpectedly met Trailblazer BBQ at a catering exhibition in Belfast back in 2014.

“Immediately Trailblazer caught my eye at the exhibition and it clicked as a great way to increase the Kitchens profits, brand awareness and target markets!”

4 years down the line it seems Trailblazer was the perfect choice as Pat now has a fleet of three Trailblazer BBQs and proudly states

“There isn’t a weekend the machines aren’t out!”

Pat claims that business was slightly slow at the beginning with the outside catering however worked well as he had the cafe to rely on and gave him time to adjust.

The mobile catering business shortly accelerated and Pat has now grown from one Trailblazer to a fleet of three. The 120 Mini Towable, 600s Grillmaster and 1200 Chip Trailer Conversion, along with owning a refurbished ambulance decorated in Trailblazers brand! (Pictured above)

“It was a slow build up, however as I had the cafes I probably didn’t push the mobile BBQ as much as I could nor should have.”

“It’s very busy now, the 600s is rented out every weekend without fail, both Saturdays and Sundays. We have also been using the 1200 Festival Chip Trailer every weekend since we got it.”

Pat claims “I don’t need to spend much time nor money on actually marketing the mobile catering aspect as the majority of business comes through word of mouth.”

What made you enquire about a BBQ & Chip Trailer system fitted in a Trailblazer?

“Your emails!”

“I saw the Mediamaster 300 and CoffeeMaster 400 modules and then the idea sparked about the ability to fit a chip fryer in one half of the 1200 Festival as I didn’t think I would ever require the dual grill.”

“The Thought of being able to rock up to an event, light the BBQ on one side while using the other as a chip trailer within one mobile unit just made perfect sense!”

Have you benefited much since purchasing the 1200?

Yes! The 1200 chip fryer conversion gives us added options for catering and allows us to tailor our offerings dependent on the event type, size and customer needs.”

“From a price point of view there’s nothing better than being able to serve chips. You just bring your bags of chips and throw them in the fryer as you need them. It’s as easy as that. Simply cook what you need, as you need it, leaving absolutely no wastage.”

“Thanks to the Trailblazer Chip Trailer Conversion we have been able to substantially increase our profit margins and increase fixed meal prices without any complaints by adding chips to each meal.”

“We got a big job thanks to Trailblazers output. We were asked to go in and cook as much food as we could in the space of an hour. This was great crack and £800 for an hours work isn’t bad!”
