Buying lots of Brands.

Get a friend to give a hand!

You can earn great Rewards,
And motivate employees.
What fun it is to earn Rewards
In a way that’s so easy…

Oh jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh what fun it is to be
Rewarded every day!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.

Merry Christmas!

“I Wasted No Time In Joining”

“Rewarding and recognising my staff is very important. If they have done a good job, I like to reward them for it” writes this UK Chef at MacDonald Hotels

“Rewarding and recognising my staff is very important. If they have done a good job, I like to reward them for it. So when I noticed the yellow labels on certain products I was purchasing, and realised I could earn rewards simply by registering myself in the scheme and then registering points from the labels, I wasted no time in joining.”

Distributor Consolidation Continues

The UK distribution market just shrank considerably with the announcement that Brakes is buying Woodward Foodservice

BrakesJust as in the USA, the UK foodservice distribution market continues to consolidate owing to the Brakes acquisition of Woodward Foodservice. “The deal will leave Brakes, 3663 and Booker as far and away the three biggest food suppliers to the pub trade, with a very fragmented picture across the rest of the distribution sector”.

 

A Sweet Addition

Cadbury’s venerable hot chocolate joins Foodservice Rewards UK…

cadbury logoCadbury’s is the latest addition to the award-winning Foodservice Rewards loyalty program for caterers now in its third year of operation in the UK.

Fin Coffey, Sales Director – Out of Home, Cadbury Trebor Bassett says:

“In joining Foodservice Rewards we have gained visibility to the buyer of the product for the first time. This kind of market intelligence is invaluable as it gives us the opportunity to communicate with new and lapsed customers, and expose them to the Cadbury’s Hot Chocolate brand.

As members of the Foodservice Rewards coalition we can communicate with thousands of individual caterers rewarding them for their loyalty and for using the brand leader. In addition, the more widely used Cadbury’s Hot Chocolate becomes on caterers’ menus, the more exposure we get to a whole new audience of buyers.

In this way Foodservice rewards gives us the possibility to expand our sales and customer base.

Here’s some nice coverage in The Publican, a leading UK trade magazine.
