""CHESTER, NJ (June 6, 2011) — As the summer barbecue season gets into full swing, CATTLEMEN’S® MASTER’S RESERVE™ Barbecue Sauces are helping operators take advantage of the growing appeal of barbecue by driving traffic and increasing check averages. Through merchandising kits, recipes and authentic regional barbecue flavor, CATTLEMEN’S®is helping to build barbecue business on menus across the country in all restaurant segments.

 Barbecue has jumped to fourth among operators’ top-10 most-menued sauces.1  As the number one flavor on sandwiches, pork and hamburgers, barbecue is growing in popularity – 38 percent of consumers want to see more of it on menus.2  It’s also called out as the number two flavor for dipping and wings and the number three flavor for entrees.3  Operators get more meals per gallon with the naturally thick and rich consistency of CATTLEMEN’S®, allowing for signature sauces and extended servings (up to 20 percent more) without sacrificing flavor or texture.  

Operators can capitalize on this barbecue trend with great tasting ready-to-use sauces from the full CATTLEMEN’S® MASTER’S RESERVE™ line.
