Meat breakfast sandwiches nationwide.
Wawa's Sizzli Breakfast Sandwich features
Beyond breakfast sausage - made
with ingredients like peas and brown
rice, without GMOs, soy and gluten -
and egg and cheese on a bagel. Eaters
can also customize orders with Beyond
breakfast sausage like breakfast bowls,
burritos or bagel sandwiches.
In the vending and micro market
channel, plant-based breakfast sandwiches
are wanting. " There is a huge
lack of plant-based breakfast options, "
said Alpha Foods chief executive Cole
Orobetz. " So, we are continuously
reimagining convenient, plant-based
options for everyone to enjoy during
every meal of the day. "
Alpha Foods offers a grab-and-go
lineup that includes two sandwich
varieties and three burritos that are
made with meatless sausage, plant
egg and dairy-free cheese, along with
meatless chorizo and spices for the burritos.
Both the sandwiches and burritos
weigh 5.5 oz. They ship frozen.
CRUNCHY ESSENTIALS
Granola is usually considered a
healthy breakfast item, and its shelfstable
quality makes it a vending
staple. The toasted mixture of rolled
oats, nuts and a sweetener like sugar or
honey, can also include other grains,
puffed rice, dried fruit, seeds, spices
and nut butters.
New for vending and micro markets
in the category is Jessica's granola
in chocolate chip, vanilla maple,
butterscotch chip and pecan almond
flavors. The product is handmade in
small batches. It's non-GMO verified,
gluten-free certified and kosher. It's
available in convenient 2-oz. snack
bags for on-the-go consumption.

Birmingham, MI, and was founded
by Jessica Mindell in 2009. " Our sales
show that customers are definitely eating
more granola, " Mindell said. " With
people working from home, they are

finding more time to eat breakfast
since. From a grocery perspective, we
are expanding into more stores. "

(frozen dough), freezer packs, bulk
packs and private label, as well as in
single-serve packs for vending and
convenience channels.
