WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. — Playing off the pandemic’s trend of more people having become foodies with cravings for their favorite comfort foods, QuickChek has rolled out a new line of three hot sausage, pepper and onion subs made with Johnsonville Italian sausage, roasted red peppers and sweet fried onions with a fresh-off-the-grill flavor and grill marks.
“We’ve definitely seen greater consumer interest in fresh foodservice, especially comfort food, during the pandemic,” said QuickChek Vice President of Marketing Don Leech. “We’re happy to introduce new recipes that will add to our diners’ summer fun and dining experience with favorite classic sandwiches on our new menu.”
These subs feature a recipe of high-quality pork blended with fennel, red pepper and proprietary spices into the ideal Italian flavor, the company said.
Consumers will have the added option to customize and build their own sandwich. All these subs will be available on 6-inch or 12-inch QuickChek signature sub rolls.
The Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based chain also is expanding its line of cheesesteaks. New chicken cheesesteaks feature 100% all-white chicken breast with a blend of spices. The four recipes are Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak, BBQ Chicken Cheesesteak, Chicken Bacon Ranch, and Philly-style Chicken Cheesesteak. Each is available on 6-inch or 12-inch sub rolls.
To complement these sandwiches on hot summer days, QuickChek is promoting its 100% all-natural Real Fruit QuickChek Smoothie. The new lineup includes strawberry colada, mango colada and pina colada. QuickChek’s new Sweet Treat Smoothies feature Kris Kringle, the company’s most-requested LTO flavor; Rainbow Cereal smoothies made with Fruity Pebbles; and Stars and Stripes Cookies and Cream smoothies made with Oreos to salute the Summer Olympics, which begin July 23 in Tokyo.
Customer favorites Kris Kringle coffee and Rainbow Cookie coffees will also be available this summer.
Murphy USA Inc., El Dorado, Ark., in January completed its $645 million all-cash acquisition of QuickChek Corp., adding 157 convenience stores in the Northeast, increasing its total store count to more than 1,650.
