7‑Eleven introduces the sweet and savory Pillsbury® Stuffed Waffle

7‑Eleven introduces the sweet and savory Pillsbury® Stuffed Waffle

IRVING, TEXAS, 2017-Sep-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Breakfast just got better at 7‑Eleven® stores with the introduction of the sweet and savory Pillsbury®Stuffed Waffle, served hot out of the oven. Developed and co-branded with Pillsbury, the convenience retailer’s first stuffed waffle combines a crispy, maple-flavored waffle on the outside and a fluffy egg omelet, savory pork sausage and cheddar cheese on the inside. Suggested retail price on the new exclusive stuffed waffle is $2.49.

While breakfast is called the most important meal of the day, mornings are certainly the most hectic. 7‑Eleven customers are in a hurry, spending just two or three minutes in the store to grab something to eat and drink, pay and get back to their day.

The Pillsbury Stuffed Waffle combines three popular morning foods – waffles, sausage and eggs – into one flavorful, handheld breakfast that is easy to eat for hungry – and busy – people on the go.

“Traditional waffles are a favorite breakfast treat when people want to indulge, but it’s not a food you can really eat on the go in your car or at your desk,” said Kelly Buckley, 7‑Eleven vice president of fresh food innovation. “People know they shouldn’t skip breakfast, but most days they don’t have the time to prepare a hot breakfast and sit down to eat it. The Pillsbury stuffed waffle is a quick and delicious solution – a hot, filling breakfast that is easy to eat and packed with protein and flavor.”

Being the most important meal of the day in today’s busy world creates high expectations from consumers – they want a satisfying, portable, delicious, affordable breakfast … and they want it now.

Satisfying? Check. With one of these 4.5 oz. Pillsbury Stuffed Waffles, hunger will be kept at bay all morning.

Portable? Check.  A Pillsbury waffle, also a favorite breakfast treat, creates this sweet and savory handheld breakfast pocket.

Delicious? Check. Customers have told us the Pillsbury Stuffed Waffle is “full of flavor,” “hot and fresh tasting,” and that they “loved the maple syrup flavor in the waffle.

Affordable? Check. At a suggested retail introductory price of $2.49, the stuffed waffle is a great value for the money, and the cost is comparable to, or lower than, many fast-food restaurant breakfast sandwiches.

Fast? Check. During the breakfast rush at participating 7‑Eleven stores, Pillsbury Stuffed Waffles are available hot for grab n go.

The stuffed waffles aren’t just available during the morning. As the times and frequency of traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner evolve into mini-meals and all-day snacking, people are eating breakfast foods morning, noon and night.

The National Restaurant Association found that 72 percent of adults want breakfast items available all day. Almost half of respondents in another study indicated they would purchase breakfast food for lunch, and approximately 60 percent said they would at dinner time.

All-day availability is one of 7‑Eleven stores’ strong suits.

“Every food and beverage 7‑Eleven carries is available 24/7,” Buckley said. “You can get a stuffed waffle at 6 a.m. and at 6 p.m. Whether a customer wants a slice of hot pizza and Iced Coffee for breakfast, or coffee and a stuffed waffle with fruit for dinner, 7‑Eleven is ready to serve them whatever they choose.”

Breakfast is hot among day parts. Breakfast and morning snack consumption is forecasted to grow faster than the U.S. population through the end of the decade, according to a study by The NPD Group. They report that from 2010 to 2016, morning snacking occasions have increased 17 percent.

“Busy Americans still love breakfast,” Buckley added. “We want to make sure that when they run into 7‑Eleven for a hot cup of coffee they have plenty of convenient  options for a hearty, healthy, light or indulgent breakfast or snack. The Pillsbury Stuffed Waffle adds another a delicious alternative to the menu.”

About 7‑Eleven, Inc.

Paradies Lagardère celebrates the opening of 5 new concessions at Tampa International Airport

Tampa, Fla., 2017-Sep-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tampa International Airport today celebrated the grand opening of eight new shops and restaurants – the most since the airport’s concessions redevelopment program began in 2016.

The new concepts include New York New York Pizza, Chick-fil-A, Burger 21, Shades of Time and Dylan’s Candy Bar on Airside A; SPANX, The Body Shop and News Channel 8 opened on Airside C.

“These new shops and restaurants reflect the local flavor and feel of the Tampa Bay region while also providing passengers access to a wide-range of prominent national and international brands,” said TPA’s Vice President of Airport Concessions Laurie Noyes. “These eight new options are a great addition to the Airport’s growing concessions program and will hopefully be enjoyed for years to come by our passengers.”

SPANX, The Body Shop and News Channel 8 are located just past security on Airside C and are operated by concessionaire Paradies Lagardère. SPANX is a popular brand of shapeware and body-enhancing clothing while Body Shop offers customers unique body care products aimed at enhancing their travelling experience. News Channel 8 is a convenience store featuring grab-and-go food delivered by local icon, Alessi Bakery.

Paradies Lagardère also celebrated two openings on Airside A: Dylan’s Candy Bar, a colorful candy store founded by Dylan Lauren, the daughter of designer Ralph Lauren, and Shades of Time, a purveyor of fashionable and contemporary time pieces, watches, pens and eyewear.

“Paradies Lagardère is excited to continue to introduce iconic shops to the travelers at Tampa International Airport,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO at Paradies Lagardère. “Dylan’s Candy Bar will bring a smile to everyone’s face with a sweet treat; SPANX will help travelers feel good about themselves with innovative shape wear, clothing and active wear offerings, while Shades of Time provides a fun Fashion Fix; The Body Shop will provide naturally-inspired beauty products; and WFLA News Channel 8 will not only satisfy the need for local Tampa regional news, a snack or beverage, but travel basics as well. We look forward to introducing more concepts to the airport, including PGA TOUR and The Runway.”

TPA Hospitality Partners is bringing some local flavor – and delicious pizza – to Airside A with the addition of New York New York Pizza, a staple in the Tampa Bay community.

“I am thrilled to have Freddy’s passion and pizza here at TPA! New York New York is a local pizzeria that brings classic New York style to the Bay area. Guests will know that the recipes are the real deal and the pizza is tossed right here when they bite into a slice. We are proud to bring more of what makes Tampa Bay a great destination to the airport,” said Maryann Ferenc with TPA Hospitality.

HMS Host cut the ribbon on Burger 21, a popular burger joint created by the locally-based Melting Pot company. The restaurant’s menu will feature a changing component based on favorites at their street-side locations.

“HMSHost is very excited about opening Burger 21 in Tampa International Airport and we thank the airport for the opportunity to serve travelers these craveable burger creations,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Michael Price. “Burger 21 is a local brand so our Airside A guests will not only enjoy a great dining experience, they get a true taste of Tampa.”

Rounding out the Airside A food court is Chick-fil-A.

“HBF Tampa Partners is pleased to be a part of the renovation of Tampa International Airport and very excited to bring Chick-fil-A to the passengers and employees of Terminal A,” said Zakery Thamert, Executive Vice President of QSR for Hojeij Branded Foods.

These new concessions options bring the Airport’s total number of new concessions up to 43.

The concessions redevelopment program includes a wider variety of choices than ever before, including more local brands. Roughly 40 percent of the food and beverage options are local, featuring such staples as Columbia, Cigar City, Four Green Fields, Buddy Brew and the Café by Mise en Place. Participation in the Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) also increased to 14, bringing more woman- and minority-owned business to TPA.

PORTUGAL: Jerónimo Martins celebrates its 225th anniversary new corporate identity unveil and logistics center in Valongo

LISBON, Portugal, 2017-Sep-28 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Jerónimo Martins Group’s new corporate identity was unveiled this morning when it officially inaugurated its new Logistics Center in Valongo.

Sara Miranda, Director of Corporate Communication and Responsibility for the Group, explained that there is good reason for this change: “The previous identity was designed in 2003, when the Group’s reality was very different from what it is today. Fourteen years on, we are a multinational Group, focused on the food business and determined to continue to grow. Our visual identity no longer reflected our brand’s reality. Celebrating 225 years was the perfect time for a change”.

Four agencies were invited to submit proposals for the rebranding project, two in Portugal and two in England. All four met the requirement of never having worked with a brand from the Jerónimo Martins universe.

English agency The Partners was chosen for the job, as its proposal was the one which best found a balance between tradition and modernity, past and future.

The new logo has a strong and distinctive typography that conveys the Group’s focus on the future and on growth, through the graphic design of the acute accent on the letter “o”.

The palette of vibrant colours used for the logo is inspired on the several stages of the day and on the light which characterises it. The different and complementary typefaces give the brand flexibility and personality which allow it to express cultural diversity. The combination of all these elements resulted in a distinctive brand which has the necessary impact to take the Group into the future.

Nick Eagleton, Creative Director at The Partners, said that what most inspired him in this challenge was “discovering a brand with such an amazing story and culture that was so in need of a new and inspiring way of telling that story to the world.” He added that “the key challenge was finding the perfect balance between capturing the long and extraordinary heritage of the brand, and at the same time conveying the dynamic, forward-looking spirit that has driven them over all those years.”

Also relating to the Group’s 225th anniversary, and already under the new brand, an corporate ad campaign, focusing on the Jerónimo Martins Group values and culture, is set to rollout – on the radio, in the press, online and across the ATM network.

Given that a brand is a kind of storytelling, read the story behind our new brand.
