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.
