CINCINNATI – August 13, 2014 - AdvancePierre™ Foods (APF), a nationally-recognized, fully integrated producer and seller of handheld sandwiches and value-added meats, is expanding its Fast Choice sandwich line with the Grilled Chicken Club.
The new sandwich features flame-broiled chicken, topped with Monterey jack cheese and bacon ranch sauce on AdvancePierre’s famous sesame seed bun. Wrapped in a clear film with eye-catching graphics, consumers can easily notice this new Fast Choice offering.
“Club-style sandwiches are gaining in popularity in quick-service and casual dining restaurants, which means the time is right to provide a club offering under the proven Fast Choice name to convenience and vending retailers,” said Tony Schroder, president of convenience channels at APF. “We’re confident that after just one bite, consumers will enthusiastically ‘join the club.’”
Not only are club-style sandwiches trending, but chicken sandwiches are one of the fastest-growing sandwich segments, according to Technomic, a leading fact-based consulting and research firm serving the food industry.
The new sandwiches have a 14-day refrigerated, nine-month frozen, shelf life and can retail for $2 - $2.50. The Fast Choice Grilled Chicken Club sandwiches will be available in August.
