Restaurant serves up mayos for the retail market
A Belgian fries restaurant in Brighton, serving up over 20 different sauces as accompaniments, is now offering its most popular flavours in 180g jars for retail.
BeFries, which opened in August 2016, offers consumers a range of sauces including hot satay, curry ketchup, BBQ, cheese and smoked chili ketchup alongside a portion of fries.
The restaurant launched an initial range of flavoured mayonnaises – garlic, green peppercorn, Samurai, dill & gherkin, and a Great Taste two-star vegan basil – for the retail market in 2017 (RRP £3.50-3.95).
Now, the company is adding two new flavoured vegan mayos to its range: black truffle and a vegan garlic variety.
“There was a huge demand for our flavoured mayos and after looking around we felt there was a gap in the market for this condiment,” said Chan Beevers director of BeFries. “Especially vegan mayos which we found hard to find any we really liked.”
Having also launched a new website to showcase the range, there are now plans to develop new recipes and launch more flavours for retail including a vegan Samurai sauce – a chilli mayonnaise with mild spice.
The business is distributing products itself via a refrigerated van across the south east of England, with plans for national distribution in the near future.
