7-Eleven Adds Chicken Dippers To Hot Foods Menu

7-Eleven Chicken Dippers

7-Eleven says it’s adding another small-snack, big-value item to its hot foods lineup: Chicken Dippers.

Chicken Dippers are pieces of 100 percent white meat chicken with no fillers that are lightly breaded and served with a choice of Ancho Chipotle, Ranch or Honey Mustard dipping sauce. A cup-holder in the specially designed Dippers packaging helps keep the sauce from spilling, according to the Dallas, Texas-based convenience store chain. Six “dippers” and sauce are priced at $1.99 at participating 7-Eleven stores.

“Since we launched hot foods nationally five years ago, our chicken breast tenders and wings have been top-sellers, so we know our customers love chicken,” said Kelly Buckley, 7-Eleven’s VP of fresh food innovation. “Chicken Dippers are flavorful, juicy and can satisfy those who are hungry for a snack or small meal.”

The new Chicken Dippers are part of 7-Eleven’s proprietary hot-to-go foods currently available in more than 5,200 of the company’s 7,800 U.S. stores. They are heated in Turbo Chef ovens, like the company’s whole and slice pizza, chicken tenders, chicken wings, mozzarella sticks and mini tacos.

Buckley says that consumers gave a “thumbs up” to the quality of the product and flavorful sauces.

“The Chicken Dippers proved so popular during limited-time in-store tests that store operators asked to keep them at the conclusion of the trial period,” she said.

“It’s a full-service experience for our guests,” Buckley added. “All they need to do is choose which sauce they want. Then they are handed a complete package, ready to go. We believe this is another product we can offer to meet the huge consumer demand for hot chicken snacks.”
