Let’s celebrate National Picnic Month!
National Picnic Month celebrates the history of the picnic and gives us the opportunity to rekindle our appreciation of nature and the great outdoors as we enjoy a meal with friends and family.
July is National Picnic Month and the warm summer weather calls us to come outside after being cooped up in the house during the winter months. Packing up your favorite sandwiches and heading to a scenic park or lake is the perfect way to relax and unwind. Promoting grab-and-go sandwiches and related picnic foods like fruit, chips and cookies in your deli department or on your restaurant carry-out menu will let your customers know you’re the destination to come to when they want to fill their picnic basket.
Picnics are about sharing food and enjoying a relaxing meal. Make it easy for your customers by offering sandwiches that can be cut into smaller serving sizes so friends and family can enjoy a variety of options. Our 12 x 5 Ciabatta is ideal for making a larger sandwich that can be sliced into smaller portions. We offer three flavors that make a good foundation for your innovative sandwich creations. Try the classic Ciabatta (#71275) or Asiago Cheese (#71254) or savory Kalamata Olive (#71288). Our unbeatable Baguette Gran Reserva (#22001) has the traditional crisp crust of a European Baguette that is just what you need to offer an outstanding artisan sandwich.
Traditional Kaiser Rolls and Sub Sandwiches are also long-time favorites in a picnic basket and our wide variety of sizes let you offer sandwiches to suit any appetite. When you want something different, try our Garlic Knots, sliced and filled to make bite sized slider sandwiches. Our recipe section offers inspiration for these and other sandwiches.
Match these up with your picnic friendly side salads, fruits and veggies, and of course some cookies or brownies for a sweet treat and you’ll be the go-to destination for easy picnic meals once the word gets out.
