Johnson stated “in my minds-eye the new electricity must be very efficient for the supply chain and includes such things as digital hand held marketing, local fresh food, grocerant positioning, urban farming (produce, seafood, etc.), autonomous delivery, better-for-you, cashier-less retail, cash-less payments, delivery, and voice ordering.
Wahlburgers developed in strategic partnership with ARKK Food Co., will include ground beef, pre-formed patties, pre-formed sliders and brick pack, all made with the same proprietary Wahlburgers Angus blend of brisket, short rib and chuck found in its restaurants across the country.
Executive Chef Paul Wahlberg stated “In all our restaurants and now in our new retail product, we offer a custom blend of angus brisket, chuck and short rib for great texture and flavor,”, who, along with his celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg, founded the restaurant chain in 2011. “We wanted to provide the best cuts of angus beef that’s always fresh, never frozen to ensure that every bite is tender, juicy and packed full of rich flavor.”
Looking for a big push the new retail beef products will be available at grocery store locations nationwide, with an initial launch over the next 30 days at Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco, Acme, Safeway, Shaw’s and Winn-Dixie. Upon rollout, Wahlburgers beef will be available at 1,300 stores.
