Deli History, Deli Future

We sold our first Deli item, a Frierich roast beef, 33 years ago.  We are still selling that item today.  As the category has grown, it has changed dramatically, and so has our breadth of lines and expertise.  Here are some examples of categories we are selling in today’s Deli:

  • Behind the Glass Meat, Cheese, & Entrees
  • Hummus
  • Cheese Kiosk
  • Rotisserie and Hot Meals to Go
  • Tortillas and Wraps
  • Popcorn
  • Pizza
  • Fresh Pasta
  • Deli bread and Wraps

Today’s Deli

The perimeter of the store, and especially the deli/prepared foods, is outpacing the growth of the rest of the supermarket.  Every chain is adapting to this shift in some format, with companies like Wegman’s and Whole Foods setting the bar high.  Here is what today’s consumer is looking for in the Deli.

  • Convenience
  • High quality
  • Ingredients they can pronounce
  • Value
  • Variety and Options to accommodate multiple trips
  • Innovation
