GERMAN FOOD STALL BOSS TO RUN LONDON MARATHON

Stefan Schenkelberg, owner of Gourmet Express Mobile Catering’s food stalls, will run the Virgin London Marathon this year to raise hundreds of pounds for the firm’s charity of the year, Action Medical Research. The run with expected to be over 30.000 participates will be on 13th April 2014.

Stefan is dedicating his efforts to his brother; His 53 year old brother Rainer, a highly intelligent person, suffered brain damage and is paralyzed from birth (he cannot speak nor walk). He is being cared for 24/7 since by the mother.

„The pain I will endure in training 4-6 days a week plus the race itself, will be worth it to raise some money that will assist in providing the funds for further research to hopefully reduce the number of sick and disabled babies and children. Action Medical Research do fantastic work and I am pleased to run on their behalf.“

He has  just over 10 weeks left for the big run:

If you wish to sponsor Stefan you can do so via the Action Medical Research website? He feels absolutely thrilled to run for the marathon this year and pledged to raise £1000 for the charity. When he was asked if he feels he should involve his business to donate to the charity he answered: „Hope I don’t have to shackle myself to the ‚can‘ and tow it behind me on the run …“ On a more serious note the boss added: „We will be looking for PR to be able to organize fund raising events. The more monies can be made available to Action Medical Research the better! This is a worthwhile cause“

Stefan is not resting on his laurels waiting to attend the marathon. Far from that. In order to run a marathon of 42.196 km (42 km and 196m) your fitness is paramount. Without being 100% fit on the day of the run you will most certainly fail to complete. „I am running for some years now but this year it will be a big test on my physical strength and a great challenge.“ He began this morning with a 14.4 km run, a distance which he will gradually increase during the course of the next 10 weeks.

„Will you help me reach my target? Just one breakthrough, however small, can mean the world. To make a donation and to learn more: Click here to enter my personal profile on Action Medical Research’s website.“

Sausages and more..

At Gourmet Express Mobile Catering we take great pride in the quality of our products. We are fully-dedicated to providing the perceived service of a gourmet fast food provider and high-quality products customers have come to value.

standard sized Rostbratwurst (GB)

The price of our Bratwurst in a roll is reasonable. We haven’t changed our price for this exquisite food item for two years. Prices in the U.K. vary; Some charge for a Thuringer Rostbratwurst, 15 to 20 cm long, significantly more.

We source the products for our stall from trusted sources but have a disadvantage when we compare e.g. burger stalls that sell  British burgers. They source their burgers locally either from butchers or  purchase them in bulk from the cash and carry wholesale. The Bratwurst is not yet adopted as widely as the burgers are hence finding wholesalers for this specific German meat product proves difficult in the U.K.. However, being one of the only street food providers using modern air frying technique as supposed to the popular deep frying option, the food products we serve contains a very significant reduction in fat content.. see more  Therefore any arguments made about our food not reaching the healthy standards set by traders sourcing their meat directly from butchers, pig farms etc can be trashed.

Our mission is to conquer the market with meaty German sausages renowned worldwide to be of highest quality. Although operating in a niche market we do not intend to limit our target audience. Everybody who eats meat is a potential customer! Having said this, gaining this rather prominent trading pitch in front of a superstore has some huge advantages for our strategy to grow the business. Our plan to import our meat products directly from Germany will certainly give us a competitive edge for the future. However, without the sales volume in place any such plans would  negatively impact our bottom line.
