Global Sandwich Trends for Foodservice


Move your sandwiches into bold territory with global flavours


Why go global? Technomic tells us that sandwich consumption is high, but the number of consumers making their sandwiches at home has gone up. To compete with at-home consumption, foodservice establishments need to serve hard-to-replicate offerings—and nothing is more on-trend than global flavours. But you don’t have to reinvent your sandwich menu. With simple, fresh ideas, turn your everyday sandwiches into must-have, we-need-to-go-there sandwiches—the kind of sandwiches that bring your customers in to your foodservice locations again and again.
