Sodexo's SubConnection Rolls Out New Bread Flavors for the Adventurous

From Maple Bacon to Jalapeno Cheddar, the Sodexo deli concept brings flavor trends to bread, helping consumers reimagine the everyday sandwich

Sandwiches are a mainstay of the American diet. Nearly half of the population eats one sandwich a day, and they welcome adventurous options to spice up their meals.


SubConnection, a deli concept from Sodexo (No. 6 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list), world leader in Quality of Life Services, is responding by introducing a new line of freshly baked, flavored breads — turning the everyday sandwich into a culinary adventure.

With more than 100 locations across the nation at schools and universities, corporate offices, and healthcare facilities, SubConnection reflects popular trends and provides consumers a variety of flavorful food options. The sandwich retailer rolled out its new bread flavors this fall with Maple Bacon and Jalapeno Cheddar as feature flavors in limited offer promotions. Additional flavors include Old Bay Cheddar, Roasted Garlic & Parmesan, Salt & Pepper, Sriracha & Orange Peel, Thai, Buffalo, Parmesan Herb, Pretzel, White Wheat, Southwest White Wheat, Rolled Oat White Wheat and Everything.

"Our new bread flavors reinvigorate the everyday sandwich and provide consumers experiences that reflect their lifestyles, said Eunese Shaw Brent, director of brand management, Sodexo. "Maple Bacon and Sriracha Orange Peel stand at opposite ends of the spectrum: one evokes nostalgia while the other touches on a new trend. The Everything sub roll, like the popular bagel, is for those who want it all. Customers can pair their bread choice with quality meats, fresh vegetables, toppings and sauces."

In addition to unique flavors, consumers can choose SubConnection's food options for a balanced lifestyle. The Sodexo-designed and operated deli service offers breads baked on-site daily, fresh produce, quality meats and meal choices that include subs and salads under 500 calories. SubConnection offers consumers choices that support Sodexo's global commitment to health and wellness in the communities it serves.

"Through Sodexo's ongoing consumer satisfaction data we know that food taste and daily variety have the most positive impact on consumer satisfaction. SubConnection offers limitless daily variety by giving consumers the ability to customize their meals with the build-your-own platform, but we are also enhancing the consumer experience by giving them bold bread flavor options, including fan favorites like Buffalo and Old Bay Cheddar" said Shaw Brent.

Sodexo delivers more than 100 services across North America that enhance organizational performance, contribute to local communities and improve quality of life. The Fortune Global 500 company is a leader in delivering sustainable, integrated facilities management and foodservice operations.

Inspiring Women to Consider STEM Careers at Sodexo

While women have fought to win the rights that we have today, the battle is not over, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), where women are still significantly underrepresented.

Candidates who meet me now may not know my background (unless they visit my LinkedIn profile, of course), and while I am currently a Strategic Recruiter for Sodexo's Clinical Technology Management opportunities, I spent around 20 years in the field as a Biomed myself!

From what I've found, many people aren't sure what a Biomed career consists of - or sometimes they don't even realize it exists.

In a nutshell, biomedical equipment technicians, also called biomedical engineers, biomeds or BMETs for short, hold a critical position in filling the gap between medicine and technology. They make it possible for medical staff to use state of the art medical devices, providing the highest level of patient care.

So how did I end up there? In high school, I loved math and science, and it seemed to promise real opportunities for our changing world. This was when I discovered biomedical engineering, which combined my two passions - medicine and fixing things.

Unfortunately, there are some young girls who still grow up thinking that engineering and science aren't meant for women, so it is important to me to show that women can thrive in the world of engineering (or in any career they choose). Because of this, I have chosen to share my personal career path and experiences with the students at my daughter's local high school and with you on this blog.

Today, gender equality and diversity is just as important as ever. Imagine the great advances that could occur in engineering if men and women were working together more often to solve problems. While women have fought to win the rights that we have today, the battle is not over, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), where women are still significantly underrepresented.

In my current role, I have the great opportunity to search the country for Healthcare Technology Management professionals and hope that I can use my position to inspire more women to consider the field from an early age.

For those who may be interested in learning more about Sodexo and the jobs we have available, I highly recommend attending in person events, like the upcoming AAMI Conference & Convention, where Sodexo Clinical Technology Management operators and recruiters will be there in person to answer your questions and help you get to know our company better.
