When I was reading about RaceTrac new menu items I could almost put the words to music. Ok, clear your mind, “Turkey & Swiss With Tomato is made with layers of turkey, Swiss cheese, fresh lettuce and tomato on honey wheat bread; the Southwest Turkey Ciabatta features a sweet-and-spicy flavor with chipotle mayo, pepper jack cheese and caramelized onions on a fresh-baked ciabatta bun.” I have not tried it yet but I can sure hum the tune!
Convenience stores continue to find success selling Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food. RaceTrac’s three new turkey sandwiches are another signal that the convenience store sector is poised to capture a greater share of stomach than most legacy restaurants would like or main stream media will report.
Bob Derian, RaceTrac's corporate executive chef, stated that his goal is to create a customer focused food platform with “five-star flavors on-the-go,” …"In our test kitchen, I'm always looking to develop great-tasting foods made with the freshest ingredients at the best price for our guests to enjoy in-store,"
Derian continued "RaceTrac's mission is to make people's lives simpler and more enjoyable, and our fresh-food offering gives our guests the opportunity to enjoy great-tasting food without sacrificing quality, freshness or convenience."
