Rocking out a $10,000 Friday!!!!

Last month our Power and Southern location store #1725 had a monster day in sales!
We got a phone call a few weeks prior from the Arizona Dental Foundation explaining that they needed catering to feed their volunteers who were offering free dental care to kids who otherwise couldn’t afford it. The event was to be held at a Dentistry College in 1725’s delivery area and there was going to be around 500 volunteers who needed to be fed. Box lunches were the best fit for this type of event and it got everyone involved very excited!
Jim Pearson (AM) and Gina Raucci (DOC) both came in at 8pm the night before the order was to be delivered (Friday Feb. 6th at 12pm) to set up all the box lunches and set everything up for a successful day in the am. The final count was 540 box lunches all set up the night before. Jim & Gina didn’t get out until 1:45 am to make sure everything was just perfect! The General Manager John Czarapata then came in at 2am to start baking all the bread and prep for the big day ahead of him. Thomas Dunnigan (1st asst.) came in at 4am to finish prepping and opening the store. Everyone involved worked together flawlessly to get all the sandwiches made, boxed up and loaded into the trailed ready to be delivered by 11:30 am!
They lady was SO happy with her catering order she came in afterwards to thank our GM (John) for everything and told him she will definitely be ordering again for next years event! She also emailed our DOC (Gina) and said it was the best catering shes ever had and not one person complained about the food which she said has never happened before! We got great feedback from this event!
After the delivery, 1725 rocked out a $8,614 lunch with a $1,703 night for a total day of $10,316!

CONGRATULATIONS TEAM 1725 FOR AN AMAZING 10K DAY!

Rocking out a $7,700 Saturday!!

Oct. 20th 2014 a letter from the owners (PICS BELOW):

 

“A few weeks back Stephanie our catering director got a big order for our JJ’s #2130 in Chandler, AZ.  The order was for ten 30 piece party platters to be delivered to the Mayo Clinic in Chandler for a big event. A few days before the event the clinic called and said that they needed to add 11 more 30 pieces and 42 cookie trays!!!  The $550 order we were pumped for just turned into a $2000 order and for a store that already does $3k plus for lunch on a Saturday we knew we needed to start planning and get some extra help.  Our GM Mitch made sure that he had extra slicing done throughout the week and got extra party trays and cookies for the giant order, we were ready for anything.  Friday morning that anything turned out to be 3 six foot party subs for a pick-up at 10:45am Saturday morning, and with (21) 30 piece platters and (42) cookie trays already due at 11:00 am it now was all hands on deck!  Mitch and I came up with our plan, we would bake the party subs at another JJ’s and bake all the bread for the party platters at their store.  Dallin our 1st assistant came in at 2am on Saturday to get things rolling, Mitch and Gina came in a 6am to help out as I went in at 6am to bake the party subs.  The morning and all the catering went off without a hitch with Brandt and Gina delivering the platters right on time, we even had 4 more 30 pieces on the fly for that morning.  Because of all the planning and hard work from everyone we were able to rock out twenty-five 30 pieces, three six foot party subs, 42 cookie trays and 10 pickle buckets all by 11am!!!  We didn’t stop there though, team 2130 rocked out a $3500 dollar lunch and $1500 night for a grand total of a $7700 Saturday!  Brandt and I are extremely proud of our team and the effort they put forward to making what should have been a crazy morning, smooth and easy.”
Thanks team 2130, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

December = PICKLE COMPETITION!

Hey everyone!

Bacus Foods Corp. currently has 8 locations in the east valley and last December all locations competed in a JJ pickle competition!

The goal was to see which location could increase the most (percentage wise) in pickle sales!
“SLANGIN’ PICKLES!!”
“EARN THOSE NICKLES, UP-SELL PICKLES!”
Each location tried their hardest to raise pickle sales and get their register person to ask each customer if they wanted a pickle with their order!
At the end of the competition, 5 out of our 8 stores ended with a huge increase in pickle sales from the previous month! GREAT JOB GUYS!!

With that amazing outcome, store 2552 (Greenfield and McKellips) CRUSHED the competition by TRIPLING their percentage in pickle sales and grabbing the 1st place spot in this competition!

General Manager of 2552 Danny Prather had this to say about winning the pickle competition:
“I have to give the credit to all my crew and management staff. They really took this on themselves to knock this challenge out of the park. They were up selling and showcasing how awesome our pickles really are. From one single pickle to a bucket of pickles they really started to make it a competition among themselves to see who could sell the most that day. Without them and their determination we would not be where we ended up. Cheers to them and all the lucky customers who got to enjoy another aspect of our great company!”
-Danny Prather
General Manager
Store 2552

It’s safe to say that everyone involved had a lot of fun competing with each other in this exciting competition!

Congratulations to Danny and team 2552 for an outstanding accomplishment!!
