Elevate C-store Business with Perdue Foodservice 

With a greater focus on foodservice offerings, today’s convenience stores have evolved into a competitor against traditional quick service restaurants. However, there is still a long way to go to overcome the preceding reputation and convince skeptical customers of the quality and taste of the new premium offerings available like artisan sandwiches, fresh wraps, soups and salads, and fresh bakery pastries. Whether looking to provide operators with fresh made-to-order meals or seeking to elevate grab & go offerings, Perdue Foodservice brands offer a variety of center-of-the-plate protein products to fit c-store operator needs, including: 

  • Ready-to-Cook
  • Pre-Cooked
  • Fully Cooked
  • Breaded and Non-Breaded
  • Pre-Sliced
  • Pre-Packaged Grab & Go 

Since 2008, foodservice traffic to convenience stores has steadily increased.1 In fact, the convenience store foodservice market as a whole is expected to grow through 2018 to become a $26.7 billion industry, increasing 34% from 2013-2018. This is due to both optimistic views for the U.S. economy, as well as foodservice innovation within the c-store space.2 

When it comes to enticing consumers to order more restaurant-quality foods at convenience stores, the bottom line is fresh. According to a recent poll conducted by Mintel, a third of consumers mentioned that foods and beverages will need to be freshly made in-house, and 27% of adults want convenience stores to prove that the ingredients they use are, in fact, truly fresh.2 With strong brand appeal, fresh and flavorful Perdue® products can meet consumer demand for quality cuisine in a convenient setting. The Perdue family of brands includes: 

  • Clux Delux®: Fully cooked Clux Delux® chicken offers the taste and the brand appeal for grab & go offerings that can help an operation compete with national and regional fast food chains.

  • Harvestland®: With a full selection of flavorful all-natural*, all-veggie fed chicken, turkey, pork and beef products customers demand, Harvestland® never adds anything to their products that nature didn’t create.
