Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
Isernio’s Sausage, the nation’s number one producer of fresh chicken sausage, is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company; making Isernio’s famous chicken sausage rolls available in a new market. Now available in 287 Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company Stores, throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland; Isernio’s hopes to establish yet another loyal customer base in a new region.
Headquartered in Kent, Washington, Isernio’s Sausage has been family owned and operated since Frank Isernio opened the doors in 1980. The son of first generation Italians, Frank was passionate about Italian cooking from a very young age. Though he began his career in pipefitting, Frank’s talent for authentic Italian cooking became apparent when he began sharing his famous fresh Italian sausage with friends and family. Soon after, Frank’s loved ones began encouraging him to pursue his passion and sell his Italian sausage commercially. Isernio’s Sausage was born in the basement of a house converted to USDA specifications in a working-class neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Today Isernio’s Sausage is the number one manufacturer of fresh chicken sausage in the United States; offering both fresh pork and chicken sausage products, in many of the nation’s most popular grocery store chains.
The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, known to consumers as A&P, is one of the leading food retailers in the northeast. Established in 1859, the first A&P was located on the corner of Vesey St. and Church St. in New York City, New York. Today the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company operates more than 300 stores under the A&P, Food Basics, The Food Emporium, Pathmark, Superfresh and Waldbaum's brands. Committed to offering fresh, quality food from local growers, bakers and manufactures; A&P works to support the businesses in the communities they serve.
Under a new and exclusive agreement, A&P will be offering Isernio’s fresh chicken sausage rolls in 287 of their stores. Having never sold their products in the region, this latest partnership for Isernio’s is a move to make Isernio’s gourmet sausage products available to a new market segment.
“We could not be more excited to offer our products to A&P consumers throughout the northeast,” said Robert Kenney, Director of Sales for Isernio’s Sausage. “We have long since established a reputation as the fresh Italian sausage of choice among consumers in the western United States. This move will help us expand our reach and share our delicious, healthy products with an even larger customer base.”
The Isernio’s leadership team is already reporting a spike in online traffic from internet users, on the east coast; particularly within the recipe section of Isernio’s corporate website. As more and more consumers discover the health benefits of lean chicken sausage, Isernio’s expects to see those numbers continue to grow. Offering orrechiette with rapini and hot sausage, pasta e fagioli, breakfast frittata and other classic Italian recipes online, Isernio’s is helping their customers put a healthy spin on many classic Italian dishes.
In the future, Isernio’s Sausage hopes to continue to partner with leading grocers throughout the United States in an effort to grow market share and establish an even larger customer base. Their recent partnership with U.S. Military Commissaries globally is also helping Isernio’s to reach that goal. With plans already underway for more expansion into new markets, Isernio’s is looking forward to a very successful future. Watch for more exciting announcements, from the Isernio team, as they work to make their products accessible to more and more health conscious consumers.
