Irving, Texas-based 7-Eleven Inc. has added to its growing hot foods menu with three new slider-style sandwiches. The cheeseburger, pulled pork and smoked turkey sliders are assembled and delivered daily on artisan Hawaiian brioche rolls from local bakery Village Baking Co. Priced at 99 cents each for a limited time, the new mini-sandwiches are available in the self-serve hot case at participating 7-Eleven stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
“The new 7-Eleven sliders are craveable comfort food—great as a mini-meal or hearty snack and easy to grab and eat on the run,” said Bob Frey, director of product development at 7-Eleven. “Customers can choose a single slider or mix and match their favorites depending on how hungry they are. All of our grab-n-go hot foods are developed with the needs of customers’ in mind—whether they’re feeding a family or just themselves, picking up something to take to a party or eating in the car.”
The three 7-Eleven ready-to-eat slider varieties are:
- Cheeseburger: loaded with an all-beef patty, sharp cheddar cheese, fire-roasted onions and signature secret sauce;
- Pulled Pork: filled with pulled pork slow-smoked over mesquite wood, blended with Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce and topped with sliced pickles;
- Smoked Turkey: turkey breast flavored with a blend of spices and slow-smoked over hickory wood, served with a tangy jalapeño ranch sauce.
While the sandwiches are served hot and ready to eat, customers can customize theirs for free at the condiment bar by adding tomatoes, jalapeños or an assortment of other toppings.
A 2019 snacking study reports that nearly every American adult snacks at least once a day, with 70 percent snacking more than twice a day.
“People are busy and grabbing a bite when they can to eat at their desk, in their car or when they have a moment to spare,” Frey said. “7-Eleven has long been a beverage and snack destination, and two out of three of our customers also purchase something to eat along with their drink. A slider, piece of pizza, mini-tacos, chicken wings or tenders can be a hearty snack to tide you over or, with a salad or cut fruit, a quick and easy meal. Sliders are a great addition to our hot foods menu and we think this little sandwich will have a lot of big fans.”
