Here we are…standing at the corner of Monday Morning and Coffee Cup, looking out at what will be our week to come and hoping for the best! There’s a LOT going on around the GreatQ4U! HQ these days despite our relatively early exit from the catering ops this year!
Hopefully, we’ll be able to share more specifics about this in the VERY near future, but I can tell you that we’re pretty excited to be preparing for a whole new presence and much closer connection to local producers of fresh produce and meats! We’ve always had a strong commitment to sourcing locally and highlighting the regional variations in BBQ that make our country so ‘BBQ Diverse’ and we’re taking the next step to keep doing this VERY SOON! (tease….)
Along with our upcoming ‘plans’ we are busy re-working menus and adjusting prices to accommodate ever increasing costs. We increased our portions this past season as a way to ‘absorb’ the modest price increases that we saw and we’re committed to hanging on the the portion sizes again next season. We are also working on ways of further controlling costs without sacrificing quality…it’s a challenge, but we’re up for it! No doubt, we will see SUBSTANTIAL increases in the cost of Beef and Pork next year for a variety of reasons…so if you’re planning an event….book soon!!! In fact, book by the end of October and you’ll not only lock in at this year’s prices, BUT…you’ll save 5% off the total cost of your event too!!! It’s our one and only sale of the year!
We are also busy practicing ‘Chuck Wagon’ recipes for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner and hope to have the Chuckwagon menu on the website soon! (www.GreatQ4U.com) along with quite a few other changes and enhancements…so visit our website often! We’re happy to have suggestions about what else we can include online to make your viewing time better…so if you have suggestions, feel free to make them!
So…that’s it for this morning’s update…need more coffee! Big news coming SOON…stay tuned! Now get out there and make it a GREAT week!
