Fuelling football fever with our World Cup special offers!

Fuelling football fever with our World Cup special offers!

Stephensons are currently offering amazing low prices on a wide range of pub and bar supplies with inspiring World Cup ideas for your establishment.

It’s official, we’ve gone World Cup crazy. But who hasn’t? This coming Thursday will see the first game of the tournament, Mexico v Cameroon, kick-off at 5.00pm but it’s England’s first game on Saturday that we are really excited for!

Jennifer Anton, UK Marketing Manager for official World Cup sponsor Budweiser said: “One of the most exciting things is that the kick-off times couldn’t be much more suitable to the UK. People will be going to the pub for early games or staying out a little longer to watch the later ones.”

The World Cup is without doubt the biggest sporting event to bring customers into British pubs and bars. Market researcher, Mintel, suggests that 75% of the UK adult population will watch the World Cup, with 20% expected to watch the games in a pub. Data from the Centre for Economics and Business Research show that the 2010 World Cup in South Africa contributed more than £1bn to the UK economy.

With all of that extra trade licensed pubs will need to ensure that they are ready to host the World Cup at their venue! Here at Stephensons, we’ve got all of the bar essentials that you’ll need to keep you supplied for the world’s biggest footballing competition with some great themed ideas, tips and advice.

Make sure that you are already advertising the World Cup at your establishment using A-boards and blackboards to build up the anticipation and make it clear that your establishment is the World Cup venue. Concentrate on specific fixtures, with clear kick-off times, promotions and entertainment before and after the games. Don’t forget your social media accounts either; change your profile and banner pictures, tweet pictures and updates as the tournament progresses and maybe even offer special deals for your followers?

Aim to draw in customers early ahead of a late game, keeping them entertained with food and drinks. They’ll love the drinks dispenser concept where they can pour their own beer at the table! Simply serve beer at the bar in with a CE marked jug for your customers to take back to their table and serve using the dispenser, increasing beer revenue and reducing pressure on the bar!

Make sure that you’ve got a good stock of beer glasses; disposable glasses, reusable plastic glasses and traditional beer glasses. The traditional dimple beer glass has recently seen a huge revival in the UK. Following its popularity, we now also stock a reusable plastic dimple beer glass which is virtually indestructible and perfect for the World Cup!

Don’t score an own goal when it come to disposable plastic beer glasses; we’ve got a fantastic range of high quality disposables which are available for amazing low prices!

Beer will undoubtedly be the most popular drink at the bar but for those that are looking to quench their thirst with something else we’ve come up with some great World Cup cocktails ideas!

Let’s face it, things can get messy but we have everything you’ll need to make the clean-up process fast and efficient. Tub Trugs offer a quick and easy way to clear tables of empties!

For more information about any of our products, contact our Customer Services team on 0161 483 6256. Don’t forget to follow us on twitter and facebook for more great offers, tips and advice.


In the Spotlight: Champagne Flutes and Saucers

In the Spotlight: Champagne Flutes and Saucers

Amazing low prices on champagne flutes and saucers at Stephensons catering equipment suppliers, just in time for Christmas and New Years celebrations.

If there is only one time a year that champagne glasses make their appearance, it’s December. With the year quickly winding to an end the champagne glasses are set to return to the tabletop as we celebrate Christmas and New Years in style.

However, serving celebratory drinks in tiered looking glassware will not tempt your guests to return in the New Year. As with all everything in the catering and hospitality industry, presentation is as important as the food and drink itself.

To ensure that your establishment exceeds your guests’ expectations ensure that you have a pristine collection of glassware.

We currently have some fantastic prices on a range of champagne flute glasses and champagne saucer glasses, order now to receive them in time for Christmas and New Years.

Remember, that champagne glasses are not limited to simply serving champagne! With the current trend of quirky beverage presentation, why not try serving cocktails in a champagne saucer glass or even flute?

After the big night there is always the big clean up and, no offence ladies, but you are bound to be left with many unsightly lipstick marks. We would recommend the Quash Concentrate glass lipstick-remover kit. With a simple pre-wash treatment, grease and lipstick can be easily removed without any long term staining.

So, be sure to take advantage of our amazing low prices on all of our champagne glassware and order now in time for Christmas!

Let us know about your Christmas celebrations, tweet us @HGStephensons.
