Grocerant ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat food has been driving top line sales and bottom line profits around the country. Most importantly grocerant ready-to-eat and ready-to-heat food is building customer frequency and loyalty. Rutter’s has understood this and capitalizing on the trend.
Rutter’s fresh-baked pizza is “prepared within three minutes -- comes in cheese and pepperoni and for no additional cost customers can add as many as six toppings that include: onion, mushroom, green pepper, sweet pepper, jalapeno pepper and black olive.”
Look out Pizza Hut and Papa Murphy’s Jerry Weiner, vice president of food service said in a statement. "They can stop by Rutter's for a hot pizza in a matter of minutes or bake one at home. Either way, they're getting a delicious meal.
Rutter's continues coddling consumer choice and offers a "take and bake" identical version of the pizza -- in cheese and pepperoni flavors -- in its refrigerated sandwich case”, Weiner said. Jerry Weiner and Rutter’s are doing things right. If success leaves clues this company is one too watch.
