Visitors go Wild for Big Al’s at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Back to articles

Yorkshire Wildlife Park first introduced Big Al’s 6oz Beefburgers in the 2012 season when the visitor attraction built its iCaramba! food outlet.  The award winning walkthrough wildlife park near Doncaster sold 17,000 burgers in the first season (a 24 week period).

Andy Bremner, Catering Manager at Yorkshire Wildlife Park says: “Big Al’s burgers have been a huge success.  The products deliver a
consistently great taste which our customers love.  In fact since introducing Big Al’s we have only received positive feedback which is significant in the catering industry considering the volume.”

The success of the Big Al’s 6oz Beefburgers led to the visitor attraction introducing Big Al’s 4oz Beefburger, BBQ Pork Ribsteak, Chicken Steak and Mesquite Chicken Wings for the 2013 season.

Andy continues: “The Big Al’s range is perfect for Yorkshire Wildlife Park.  It’s frozen, pre-cooked and quick and easy to prepare which is crucial at our busy periods.

“All of the products deliver an excellent flame grilled taste and importantly keep their size which helps us to offer our customers good value for money.”

Yorkshire Wildlife Park serves Big Al’s products across two of its food outlets:

The products sell at £3.95 for a single item or £4.95 for a children’s meal and £6.50 for an adult meal.  The products can be served with cheese and pickle as part of a garnish on the bun.

The attraction also serves Big Al’s as part of its Safari Nights events which run five times a season. The products are served as part of a plated meal deal with a choice of chips, peas or salad.

Andy concludes:

“I would thoroughly recommend Big Al’s to any visitor attraction.  It provides a high quality, convenient menu option that is guaranteed to appeal to your visitors.”

“The range is pre-cooked making it easy to work with and the cooking process minimises waste both of which make it much easier to conform to food safety regulations.  In conclusion, the Big Al’s range is real winner.”
