Your BSA Membership

If you want to grow your presence in the sandwich and broader food-to-go sector, you’re missing out if you’re not a member of the BSA.

Here are six key aspects through which our members benefit from our activities:

  • We help our members understand changes in legislation that will impact their businesses. Whether around allergens, salt and sugar, listeria or a variety of other issues, our online resource bank and regular updates ensure you stay abreast of the legislation that matters to our sector.
  • We fight your corner in Westminster. We don’t just report on legislation, we help shape it for your benefit. Your support is crucial in helping us work towards a better legislative environment for our industry.
  • We bring the industry together and make it stronger.  Perhaps best encapsulated by the Sammies, our annual awards dinner that brings the industry together to celebrate the best of the sandwich and food-to-go sector in the UK, but there are a range of sessions through the year that will help your business to better face challenges and take advantage of opportunities.
  • We act as your technical support team.   As a member you have access to a wealth of free technical support and advice, much of it Assured Advice which means it is difficult to EHO’s to challenge.   Our advice covers everything from employment law to food hygiene and labelling.
  • We help you learn, develop and grow your networks.  Our breakfast briefings take place regularly (quarterly) through the year. They give you the chance to network and hear from inspirational and insightful industry speakers. 
  • We’re a source of insight, expertise and inspiration for you to draw on. Members stay up to speed through subscriptions to leading industry publications Sandwich & Food-to-go News and Café Life (included with membership), as well as through our regular, insight-led updates to keep you abreast of what matters and help you understand the future direction of our market.

Get Social and Promote Business

Really Social are a restaurant marketing service with a difference. They specialise in helping restaurants generate more bookings and footfall through social media and they’ve got a proven track record with everything from small local brasseries to large award winning restaurants.

Their team will produce stunning weekly content to showcase your restaurant on all the social media platforms and (most importantly) Google too! Targeted only towards the people most likely to spend money with you, they’ll ensure your business is showcased in front of thousands of potential customers every week.

You’ll receive a professional photoshoot when you start working with them to help you generate hundreds of ’stand out’ photos and videos. Plus, you will get access to their exclusive mobile app to allow you to see and approve content before it’s published, giving you complete control over your brand with minimal effort.

Their advanced analytics even allow you to directly track the impact of the campaigns including phone calls, bookings, website clicks and even footfall!

We’re still surprised to learn that this service costs less than the price of a daily coffee, so if you’re looking to grow your business in 2019, we’d highly recommend you have a conversation with them. In addition to this, we have negotiated a special price for our contacts where you’ll receive a 30% discount on the service!

Their team will be reaching out to restaurants over the coming month with a very special offer, however, if you’d like more information in the meantime, you can call them on 01733 806 404.
