It’s not just Hog Roasts!

As its name suggests Pimp My Pig specialises in Hog Roast but as full- service caterers, franchisees provide everything from breads and canapés, fresh salads and piping hot vegetables to desserts and cakes.

There’s a long list of set menus to make life easy, and we offer customers a stress-free service. We handle everything from food preparation using the freshest ingredients to arriving on time, setting up, cooking, carving and buffet service. We provide rustic serving trays and wooden cutlery, and of course, we clean up.

Quite simply, we’re the best, and we have plenty of comments from satisfied customers to prove it. Many individuals and companies have become regulars over the last two years.

Have you got what it takes?

Emma and Steve are very aware that the prospect of catering for big numbers can sound daunting, but using Pimp My Pigs’ carefully-developed and documented systems, it’s a piece of cake even for a single operator or couple.

Hospitality experience is helpful, of course, but if you have bucket loads of motivation, you’re outgoing and you like helping people have fun, Pimp My Pig is virtually everything a café or restaurant isn’t. There’s no having to open each day; no paying staff to sit around waiting for customers; no stocking up with food that must be thrown out for customers that don’t turn up. The Pimp My Pig franchisee knows exactly how many people they will be serving so they prepare just the right amount of food, and they only employ staff when and where required.

Emma says, ‘Except for the festive season when business parties can be on any day, most of our catering is done at weekends with events from black tie to super casual – we get invited to all the best parties! I usually take three days off a week – Monday to Wednesday – so I can tell you now, there are LOTS of benefits that far outweigh any negatives.’

She adds, ‘The key to a thriving franchisee is in delivering quality. Quality preparation, quality food and quality service are the cornerstones to our business model, and without sounding too immodest, the reason why we have been so successful.’
