C-stores started shifting to flavor early this summer to help recover from any sales lost due to COVID-19. The common denominator is food innovation centered around unique sauces for sandwiches and other to-go menu items.
Texas Pete® is a go-to brand due to our instant brand appeal with customers and because our sauces add a spicy kick without overpowering the flavor with too much heat.
