CINCINNATI – October 22, 2014 - AdvancePierre™ Foods (APF), a nationally-recognized, fully integrated producer and seller of handheld sandwiches and value-added meats, is expanding its Hot ‘n’ Ready sandwich line with the introduction of the Split Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit.
The Split Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit, which launched to rave reviews at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show in October 2014, features a butterflied smoked sausage link on a scrambled egg with American cheese served on a home-style biscuit. The butcher-wrap packaging gives it a fresh look and includes eye-catching graphics that will make it easy for customers to notice the product in a sandwich warmer or cold case.
“Consumers have come to expect the Hot ‘n’ Ready brand to provide restaurant-style sandwiches that are both convenient and fresh,” said Tony Schroder, president of convenience channels at APF. “After a strong showing at NACS, it’s evident that the Split Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit will exemplify Hot ‘n’ Ready’s strong reputation.”
The new sandwiches, available now, have a 10-day refrigerated, nine-month frozen shelf life. The hand-wrapped sandwiches can hold hot in a sandwich warmer for up to four hours.
