Our car sales promotion is designed for the car sales manager and his sales team. We have provided many car sales events over the past two years not only BBQ's but also other catering promotions including cocktail buffets, breakfasts and food platters.

The aim of all our car sale promotions is to create a good atmosphere in the showroom for the customer and the sales team itself, the customer feels he/she is getting something for free and the sales team are boosted by the promotion and the free food if nothing else.

How it all started
After speaking to a car sales manager in Durham two years ago, he told me of a new vehicle that was due to be launched later in the year. He asked if I would be able to provide a buffet so he could invite some guests to come and test drive the vehicle. We agreed on a menu for the night and the event was a small success with a lot of interest in the new vehicle but only 10% of the guests invited had turned up.

At the weekend we did a family fun day barbecue for a wood company, we where asked to cater for 60 people but by the end of the day well over 100 guests had been served, the event was very popular and I noticed everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves it was at this point the company manager came over and thanked us for providing the BBQ and jokingly said "I didn't expect such a good turn out I thought a lot of the staff might have had other plans for the weekend, it just goes to show how popular a barbecue is these days".

The next week I was reflecting on the work we had done for the showroom and the wood company, so I called the car sales manager and told him about the success of the BBQ event at the weekend and would he consider trying a barbecue promotion for the next car launch, he said the next new vehicle wouldn't be for a while but he did have a lot of trade in stock that needed clearing out and maybe a stock clearance promotion might work well.

The promotion was put together like this: We provided catering on the night for 200 guests and we served over 170 people in a five-hour period, the night was a huge success with 8 cars, 3 four wheel drive and 3 vans being sold on the night.
