Hot ‘n’ Ready Line Now Features 14-day Refrigerated Shelf Life Egg Patty and Three New Products
CHICAGO, IL—October 1, 2011—AdvancePierre Foods debuted the new and improved Hot ‘n’ Ready line Sunday at the 2011 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show in Chicago. Setting the standard for quality in the convenience food marketplace, the Hot ‘n’ Ready line now features an egg patty with a 14-day refrigerated shelf life. Additionally, AdvancePierre is expanding the line to include three new sandwiches: Southern Fried Chicken with Cheese, Bacon Cheeseburger and Spicy Chicken Biscuit.
“Sandwiches continue to grow in popularity and consumers are always looking for flavorful new varieties,” said Bill Toler, CEO of AdvancePierre Foods. “Working with our supplier partners to develop an egg patty with a 14-day shelf life is a great example of our commitment to innovation. We conduct extensive consumer research and testing to ensure that all our products not only meet but exceed consumer expectations for high quality, great-tasting food.”
AdvancePierre continually explores new meal items as well as ways to keep existing product lines fresh and appealing, and the new revamped Hot ‘n’ Ready logo and packaging are great examples of that practice. All Hot ‘n’ Ready items now feature a more contemporary look and dual oven/microwave preparation flexibility. Designed for heating and holding in the warmer case, each sandwich is made with quality ingredients and all are hand-wrapped to give a fresh, restaurant-style appeal. Existing products in the Hot ‘n’ Ready line include the Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit; Canadian Bacon, Egg & Cheese Muffin; the classic Cheeseburger; and BBQ Pork Rib Sandwich.
