The turnkey hot to-go sausage program provides retailers with a premium solution to turn the deli into a foodservice destination. Sized to fit into a wide variety of deli department footprints, Johnsonville’s Sausage Station Kiosk offers products for all dayparts.
“We have seen the growth of cold-sandwich programs in supermarkets, but we saw a need for a hot-sandwich program that didn’t take a lot of space or labor to maintain it throughout the day,” said Sarah Babb, a member of Johnsonville’s foodservice marketing team.
Paired with Johnsonville’s premium sausage line, including Ultimate Sausages, the kiosk program offers a hot-sandwich solution on par with quick-service and fast-casual restaurants. Johnsonville’s branded kiosk features a convenient counter-sunk roller grill with a Flavor ID System to easily identify sausage varieties, hot pans for a toppings bar, and an adjacent sauces and condiment area. Customers can easily access the kiosk from either side to customize their sandwiches with a variety of toppings and sauces. Hot toppings are key to differentiating foodservice offerings in the deli, the company says.
Johnsonville’s Ultimate Sausages are coarsely-ground pork sausage links with a flame-grilled appearance and flavor of the backyard grill. A wide variety of popular flavors are available, including Brats, Italian Sausage, Chorizo and Maple Chipotle. Like all Johnsonville Sausage products, Ultimate Sausages are a heat-and-serve premium product packaged 4:1, 5:1 and 6:1, and frozen for storage convenience at 2/5-lb. bags to a case.
