[Case Study] How we helped Bicycle Queensland serve POPCORN to over 2500 riders!

The 11th Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge was held on 18th October and Bicycle Queensland wanted to offer its members something a little different in its marquee at the finishing line.

They contacted Brizzy Jumping Castles requesting a fully managed popcorn machine hire including all consumables as well as serving staff. The problem was, the quantity required couldn’t be confirmed.

​What started at 900 servings of popcorn went to 500 and back up to 1200 due to a last minute influx of registered riders. As a non-profit organisation, Bicycle Queensland certainly didn’t want to waste money on excess popcorn consumables.

So how did we put together the Popcorn Machine Hire Package?

Brizzy Jumping Castles put together a custom package that satisfied all of BQ’s requirements for the big ride. Here are the details:

  • We covered the basic serving quantity of popcorn estimated by BQ within the period of time allocated for the event
  • We ensured the quantity of machines supplied could produce enough popcorn at the required times
  • We supplied an experienced operator cable of managing a large event
  • We supplied additional consumables as a back-up in case the originally estimated quantity was not sufficient
  • We provided an all inclusive economical and complete popcorn machine hire package that met their budget

On the day, the event was a complete success as was the members only popcorn. The meticulous planning at both ends paid off and Bicycle Queensland was ecstatic with the outcome.

Check out what they had to say after the event:

I just wanted to say how awesome Gavin was at our event with the popcorn machines. He worked non stop until the crowd died down. He was really helpful and great interacting with the riders, set up and pack down was seamless too. Great service
