Soft pretzels grew on American menus by an astonishing 17.4% between 2018 and 2019 and pretzel breads grew 18.8%*! Yet, there is time to beat your competition as soft pretzels are still on only a fraction of restaurant menus. There are three great reasons for the amazing growth:
- Soft pretzels are so versatile for any foodservice operation – From convenience stores and college & universities to upscale casual, pretzels turn the ordinary to extraordinary. The proliferation of soft pretzels, led by J&J Snack Foods, now incorporate soft pretzel sticks and rolls to sweet or savory filled pretzels.
Nearly 50% of restaurant food is eaten away from the restaurant.
- Soft pretzels are so portable for today’s grab & go consumer – Today, nearly 50% of restaurant food is eaten away from the restaurant where it was purchased**. Soft pretzels are extraordinary in their portability for drive-thrus, takeout, delivery or catering.
- Soft pretzels are so easy to prepare – Today’s tight labor market and high employee turnover means that menu items must be quick and easy requiring minimal training by the back-of-house staff. Nothing can be simpler than thaw, bake and serve with J&J Snack Foods’ line of soft pretzel products. Yet customers love the flavor and options enabling them to dip, smear or devour a delicious soft pretzel from your menu.
