Sausage & Gravy Stuffed Biscuits Introduced For Grab-n-Go

Johnsonville's New Hand-Held Sandwiches Are Ideal for Breakfast & Snacking

Johnsonville has launched its new Sausage & Gravy Stuffed Biscuits for grab-n-go foodservice venues. 

The new hand-held biscuits have a flaky buttermilk crust with Johnsonville sausage and just the right amount of gravy stuffed inside for that traditional feel-good combination, now available on-the-go. And, their dual appeal at breakfast and snack times offers an easy-to-eat and tasty option for those busy times of the day.

The Johnsonville  Sausage & Gravy Stuffed Biscuits are well-suited to provide early and late afternoon sales boosts for foodservice operators because they fit into peak snack times. With nearly two-thirds of consumers saying they get their snacks at C-Stores, Johnsonville has placed particular emphasis on developing this snack to match up well with the demands of these consumers.

Hand-held snacks are emerging on the menu, according to Mintel's "Trends in Snacking and Value Meals in Foodservice," particularly among consumers aged 25-34, who are most likely to snack frequently at foodservice venues.

These hand-held sandwiches are perfect for breakfast and snacking, creating more menu opportunity for convenience stores, C&U, B&I, hotels, sports venues, and anywhere snacks are sold.

Individually packaged, Johnsonville’s biscuits are ready to heat from the refrigerator, taking only 50 seconds in the microwave.  For a more appealing offer, Johnsonville has branded warmers to make it even easier for the consumer to grab and go. The biscuit maintins its tender texture for up to 4 hours in the warmer. This equipment, as well as merchandising materials created to drive trial, are available through Johnsonville Foodservice representatives.    

Like all Johnsonville Sausage products, Sausage & Gravy Stuffed Biscuits are made with the operator’s convenience in mind, frozen for storage convenience, and available 4-lbs. to a case.
