Posted on 4th June, 2014

Love it or loathe it – The World Cup never fails to capture the nation’s attention when it arrives every four years. Soon to grace our screens once more, make sure that your business is ready for football fever and that you capture some extra sales from the event. Here’s a number of ideas for you to try:

Football sweets

We’ve got a number of great ideas at Hancocks including bulk pick and mix bags of Chocolate Foil Wrapped Footballs and Football Gum Sherbet Fill. A large Football Lolly is also in stock right now and perfect to accompany any match viewing. Hancocks is also stocking M&M’s Brazilian themed bags, offering a sporting twist to a popular product.

Develop an England theme

Taking the colours of the England flag, we stock a raft of red sweets and white sweets, allowing you to develop a great window display or to pack up into smaller bags and containers, ready to share amongst friends and family whilst watching the action. We’ve also got a great array of red and white combined sweets so get creative and see how you might boost your sales over the coming month.
