Follow-Up on the 2011 DOT Food Show: Foodservice Fuels C-Store Success

Hot Dog Roller Grills Remain Core C-Store Item


Happy Monday All,

Following a three-day trip in St. Louis for the 2011 DOT Food Show, there’s just one thing on my mind: Foodservice! Did you know Foodservice ranks third in convenience store sales behind just fuel and tobacco? With the ever-increasing restrictions on tobacco and the fluctuating state of oil throughout the world, the best way to protect margins in today’s market is to look outside the box and inside the bun! Hot dog roller grill programs, pizza on-the-go, coffee and cappuccino, and slushie units are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the wide array of products and programs that are becoming increasingly available to convenience store operators on a daily basis.

The DOT Food Show was an eye-opening experience. Through seminars and interaction with industry leaders like Allen Brothers, the marketing and buying team observed the capabilities of the manufacturers, distributors, and retail owners to combine ingenuity and opportunity to create successful and lucrative sales. At Allen Brothers, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve. We are currently putting together a comprehensive Foodservice program that will empower our customers to take full advantage of this major profit driving division. The Allen Brothers Marketing Team has been posting pictures from the show of potential products on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/abdelivers. We encourage all of our customers to visit our Facebook page and let us know what products you like best!

If you have any questions regarding foodservice or ways that Allen Brothers can help you grow your business, contact AB today at info@abdelivers.com.

A Snapshot of the Savings

All the talks going on in the offices at Allen Brothers about food service got me thinking about the ruler of the roller grill, the hot dog. Is it just me, or do grilled hot dogs taste way better than those dogs that are boiled?  You may be wondering why, right? Well, as we get closer and closer to the Spring, the one device you’ll begin seeing more and more is the hot dog roller grill. Arguably one of the greatest convenience store contraptions ever developed, the roller grill brought convenience store owners into the world of food service with a bang. I don’t care who you are, there’s no question that a roller grill hot dog tastes better than a boiled one.

This is my tip for the Spring to any store owner in the Mid-Atlantic region: Grab yourself a roller grill if you don’t already have one. Baseball season is right around the corner, and nothing compliments a day at the ballpark like a dog in the bun. They can be a fantastic source of earnings for convenience store owners and help get your reputation as a food service retailer in your geographic footprint. Don’t let the opportunity slip by, send Allen Brothers an email at info@abdelivers.com to find out how we can get you hooked up with hot dogs.
