Get the Best Quality with 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. 

"There’s a pride and history that goes into our product because it’s our life’s work, ” says Kirk Eggelston, Senior Manager, Continuous Improvement at Tyson Foodservice. “We work hard. And there’s no shortcuts or cutting of curing or smoking time." 

Experience Rich, Genuine Flavor

Rooted in Tradition 


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. 

“Our bacon is heavily smoked with premium pork bellies,” says Eggleston. “It’s a superior bacon because of the time and effort we put into it.”

Just Add Bacon for a

Higher Price Point on Your Menu 

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.

Serve Bacon That’s Beyond the Competition

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 Variety, Versatility and Value

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:
