IRVING, Texas — 7-Eleven has introduced an Alaskan pollock sandwich in participating U.S. stores, the company told CSP Daily News.
The sandwich, made with herb-crusted wild Alaskan pollock, American cheese and tartar sauce on a buttery bun, is available for $2.49 while supplies last. Customers can also purchase the sandwich for $2 on Fridays through the chain's mobile app.
“7-Eleven is always on the lookout for new and delicious fresh food that we think our customers will love and, once they’ve tried it, seek out again and again,” said Robin Murphy, product director of fresh foods for 7-Eleven. “Customers looking for a hot fish sandwich because they’re observing Lenten dietary restrictions, or just because they love a good fish sandwich, can find this limited-time offering in our hot cases.”
The sandwich developed out of the Association of Genuine Alaska Pollock Producers' North American Partnership Program. “We are excited to be collaborating with the world’s largest convenience-store chain, 7-Eleven,” said Craig Morris, the association's CEO. “This collaboration is exactly what the program was designed to do: bring wild Alaska pollock into new channels, including convenience customers.”
