Can Healthy Options Offer a Healthy Cash Flow?

  • October 18, 2021

Guests are becoming increasingly conscious of the connection between their diets and health, and the foodservice industry is responding with products and menu items designed to appeal to a full range of dietary lifestyles. Whether they’re following a Keto, Paleo, Whole30, Vegetarian, Vegan or Flexitarian diet, guests are looking for foods that avoid unwanted ingredients and allergens yet still pack a flavorful punch. Plant-based foods are in high demand, and our Sysco Simply brand helps satisfy these dietary and lifestyle preferences with trusted, innovative, and versatile products. Additional benefits also include lower food costs, longer shelf-life than animal products and less price volatility. Operators who capitalize on these trends can appeal to a broader market of consumers while introducing new options to existing diners.

Sysco Simply has recently launched two sprouted grain bread products that present better-for-you options for your guests. Available in both Oat and Wheatberry, Sysco Simply Sprouted Grain Hamburger Buns are made from whole-grain, flourless mash and simple plant-based ingredients. These buns are:

  • Ideal for diners with dietary restrictions, including allergy-conscious customers
  • Plant-based, certified organic, non-GMO, kosher, vegan and made in a tree-nut and peanut-free facility
  • Meet the classification of a whole grain product with 41 grams (oats) and 40 grams (wheatberry) of whole grain per serving

Dense and sturdy, these buns allow operators to customize loaded sandwiches with multiple toppings and condiments. Plus, their hearty but smooth texture provides the perfect blank canvas for burgers, breakfast sandwiches, bunwiches and more. Incorporate these on-trend items into your menu and see how you can transform healthy choices into healthy profits!
