Grab-n-Go Breakfast and Snacking Done Right

Published: October 8, 2020

Level-up your retail offerings with individually wrapped, grab-n-go products

It’s no secret that today’s consumers live 24/7, on-the-go lifestyles.

Whether adapting to campus life or preparing for an overnight shift, consumers want options that will help keep them full and fueled at any time of day, which often blurs the line between snacking and eating a full meal.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, non-commercial foodservice operators have been challenged to reimagine their product offerings to account for budget shortfalls, staff shortages, capacity constrained feeding and more. For operators, leveraging innovative product solutions that can deliver against consumer demand for quality grab-n-go options while also driving revenue has never been more important.

Let’s explore two ways for operators to take their grab-n-go retail experience to the next level:

Incorporate Products with Premium Ingredients

According to Technomic, studies show that premium ingredients and single-serve packaging are important to consumers when making purchasing decisions(1). Hillshire® Snacking Small Plates fit the bill by serving up sophisticated flavors and highly desired nutritional value with 14+ grams of protein across the portfolio. Help your customers make the most of today’s all-day snacking opportunity by adding flavors customers love in unique, individually wrapped formats that will appeal to a wide range of taste preferences.

Did you know… 46% of consumers enjoy eating breakfast at non-traditional times(2), so who says breakfast can only be consumed first thing in the morning – breakfast anytime is always a good idea!

Offer Familiar Comfort and Convenience

Adapting to the “new normal” doesn’t have to mean sacrificing an exciting eating experience – consumers believe that breakfast foods have a positive impact on their mood(3). By offering innovative solutions from the widely recognizable Jimmy Dean® brand, like Jimmy Dean® Morning Combos, Breakfast Bowls, Jimmy Dean® Breakfast Sandwiches and Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles® Breakfast Cups, operators can help bring back a sense of normalcy consumers are craving, no matter when they’re grabbing their next meal.
