Broughs Kew - within Dobbies Garden World
Late in 2007, Mark Coughlan was appointed as
Store Manager for an exciting new garden centre development in Southport.
Mark invited Broughs Butchers to provide the butchery in the all new Food Hall within the new Dobbies Garden World Centre.
We were delighted to accept; the new venture gave us an opportunity to offer 7 day a week trading in an area of the town in which we had no presence.
Customer response since we started has been encouraging and the enterprise goes from strength to strength.
Nick Mallen has recently taken the post of Manager at the store, Nick has worked for in the Butchery trade since he was a schoolboy. He is really time served having worked in many butchers shops throughout Merseyside.
Customers will be impressed with the innovative and creative displays Nick and his team produce. The products are good especially the ready to cook meats in marinade.
The Foodhall invironment is relaxed and engaging, easy parking and a successful restaurant mean that the customer experience is excellent.
One of Nick's most popular products is the easy to cook and economical Pin Wheels.
The meats are minced (Beef or Lamb or Pork) and spices and herbs are added. The mix is then rested and chilled before it is carefully prepared for the rolling out. A good quality puff pastry is rolled and prepared, then the meat mix is laid on to the pastry and the whole product is rolled and trimmed.
It sounds easy but it really is not; the skill is getting just the correct amount of meat to pastry. It is a science! Give them a whirl next time you are at the counter, one each is usually enough.
Nick has a strong team of employees behind him whose commitment and great customer service have paved the way for the successful relationship between Broughs and Dobbies Garden Centre. The team includes Jimmy, Pauline and Peter. Togetherness and top quality customer service have contributed to the success of Broughs Kew.
