Who said there’s no such thing as a free lunch?

Hines Supply’s new BBQ Crew is waiting to bring its mobile BBQ Trailer to your office or job site with free food!

“It’s a new summer program we just started,” said Hines Commercial Sale Manager Grant Carlson, who explained that the service is provided to Hines builder and contractor customers and potential customers. “Our customers can engage through our sales team if they’re interested in having a barbecue at their facility.”

The BBQ Crew brings out a grill and serves up a lunch of brats, burgers, hot dogs, chips, ice cold beverages and more - all on Hines’ tab.

“We’ll go to job sites, offices, parking lots, basically anywhere customers want to be,” Carlson said. “Last week we took it out for its maiden voyage and had 100 people there for one of our biggest customers.”

The new venture evolved from Hines’ lunchtime barbecues at its Hampshire location over the past several years.

“People could take a break come out and join us for lunch, and then go back to work,” Carlson said. But as the economy continues to recover, “Everyone has gotten busier and it’s too tough for builders, let alone their carpenters and crews, to leave the field to go somewhere for lunch,” he added. “So we decided we’d bring the lunch to them.”

Hines’ BBQ Crew will go out to a construction site, whether it’s a single home or a subdivision being built, and set up wherever it’s convenient so workers can take a break and get a burger or a brat.
