According to Datassential, sandwiches are found on 73.2% of restaurant menus, ranking #2 on the list of most common entrees on menus today. And while there are multiple ingredients that make a sandwich great, from the meats and cheeses to the veggies, sauces, and condiments, equally important is the type of carrier you choose. The right bun can add flavor and put a new spin on a classic. But in today’s tight economic market, with a growing need to focus on efficiency and control costs, making homemade breads and buns has become too labor intensive for food service operators.

When you slack them out, these buns and rolls taste as fresh as the day they were produced. Plus, you can pull only what you need, reducing waste and saving food cost. Although ready to serve as is, chefs can put their own twist on these products and easily customize them by basting with a flavored butter or sprinkling tops with different seasonings, sesame, or poppy seeds.
