CARLSTADT, NEW JERSEY (February 9, 2021)—As the demand for carryout and to-go food options reaches a record high in the foodservice industry, so has the need for an easy-prep, durable sandwich offering. To meet this demand, Tribeca Oven has formulated a Focaccia sandwich carrier to provide operators with a versatile sandwich offering, while elevating the consumer takeout experience. The Olive Oil Panino is made with a Focaccia dough, creating an airy, light interior described as “cloud-like” and features a dimpled top. This new offering brings Tribeca Oven’s signature Focaccia flavor in sandwich form for your customers to enjoy.
“Consistency and reliability are important now more than ever,” said Mike Toti, Vice President of Food Service Sales and Marketing at C.H. Guenther & Son, parent company of Tribeca Oven. “Therefore, we created this product to provide distributors and operators with a high-quality, adaptable sandwich carrier to simplify operations. As your reliable partner, our objective is to innovate menu solutions that will make an impression on your customers.”
With its universal flavor and versatile menu applications, the Olive Oil Panino is a seamless solution for all-day menus. From savory breakfast sandwiches to hearty paninis to small burgers, this sandwich carrier transitions smoothly across dayparts, maximizing your bread investment on a single sandwich carrier. Because the Olive Oil Panino is unsliced, it can be it also be re-purposed as table bread to further eliminate waste.
In a review Tribeca Oven conducted with independent operators, “Flavor” and “Quality” were identified as the most important factors when considering bringing in a new bread product for their customers. While the Olive Oil Panino has added benefits for labor operations, its true value comes from its delicious flavor and artisan quality that resonates with customers.
In addition to creating the Olive Oil Panino, Tribeca Oven has improved its Focaccia line to create a lighter crumb and airy texture across all products. This change affects Tribeca Oven’s Traditional Focaccia – ¼ Sheet, Herb Focaccia – ¼ Sheet, and Herb Focaccia – Reduced Size. Because these Focaccia products do not include toppings or a finishing oil, operators are given a blank slate to create a custom dish or flavor combination, opening up limitless meal opportunities. The versatility of Tribeca Oven’s Focaccia line can keep your menu fresh and exciting while remaining practical.
“At Tribeca Oven, we continuously identify ways to improve products that delight our customers. We are optimistic that the Focaccia portfolio improvements will resonate with end-users to drive repeat business and increase traffic,” said Toti. “As for our Olive Oil Panino, we encourage our customers to request samples to discover for themselves how our flavor, quality, and versatility fit with their operation in comparison to their current offerings. One taste is all the proof you’ll need.”
