Brakes’ ice-cream offering is a sweet treat for caterers this summer

During times of economic hardship, consumers search for an indulgent and affordable treat, such as ice-cream, to reward themselves.[1] By capitalising on this trend and the fact that schools are breaking up for the holiday season, caterers have the chance to entice customers with Brakes’ delicious offering and help boost profit margins during what promises to be a fantastic summer.
