Oh, that first bite into bacon. The crispy, savory, salty, smoky goodness is something most consumers can’t resist. But there’s bacon... and then there’s premium quality bacon. And we’re to going show you why menuing premium quality bacon across your menu is worth it to satisfy the growing popularity and consumer demand for bacon that’s simply better. Because when it comes to bacon, there is a better way. A masterfully crafted way. Bacon the Wright Way®.
The storied flavor and quality of Wright® Brand Bacon started more than 100 years, when Roy Wright and Egbert and Fay Eggleston set out to create a thicker, fuller-flavored bacon slice by paying close attention to every detail in curing, real-wood smoking and hand trimming. Today, this premium bacon remains an operator and customer favorite, known for its rich, genuine, savory flavor and consistent quality.
Since 1922, Wright® Brand has been known for its unique, full-flavored bacon. And you can be known for it too, when you menu this premium bacon in your establishment. Masterfully crafted, real-wood smoked and hand-trimmed, it's the kind of bacon that customers will come back for.
Bacon is now in
With bacon now in 75% of households1 and on 70% of menus2, it's not just for breakfast or a secondary protein anymore. With its ever-growing popularity, this beloved protein has been expanded across the menu to enhance dishes and boost sales as consumers seek new and bold flavors. Here’s just a few of the ways you can get in on the premium bacon trend:
Consumers are willing to pay more for bacon and their demand for it on your menu is worth it. Breakfast sandwiches with bacon command a $1.49 higher median price than those without bacon. And adding bacon to lunch/dinner sandwiches increases the median price by $0.77. Plus, with Wright® Brand Bacon, you’ll also get an incredible value for premium quality bacon that’s known for its irresistible flavor.
With the incredible flavor of Wright® Brand Bacon comes the unmistakable quality that will set your establishment apart from those serving everyday bacon. Each month, the team runs a taste test against key competitors to ensure quality standards are consistently applied and following the family tradition. Plus, every slice goes through a 12-step process to make it the best it can possibly be, from sourcing premium pork bellies to the final packing of premium bacon products for delivery.
“Our bacon is superior to competitors because we provide a delicious product with great flavor and value,” says Eggleston. “It’s a leaner bacon, which is due to its thickness. It doesn’t shrink up nearly as much as other brands and provides great cooking consistency with a good salty, sweet and smoky flavor profile.”
Get all the varieties, cuts and flavors you need. Whatever's on your menu, Wright® Brand offers a wide range of products and multiple flavors to enable use in any dish imaginable. Plus, you can choose from three quality cuts in different flavors and varieties that are available in bulk or Flat-Pack® bacon packaging and either frozen or gas-flushed for extended shelf life and improved quality:
