With a majority of consumers wanting sweet potatoes on menus but only 20% of foodservice operations serving them, the manufacturer introduces Sweet Things, a new variety carrying sweet and savory flavor profiles. Sweet Things Sweet Potato Chef Cut (7/16-inch) are thick-cut sweet potato fries that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Other products in the 13-variety line include Sweet Potato Trim Fries, Sweet Potato Platter and Sweet Potato Crinkle Cuts.
GasMart may be best known to the average industry follower for its 2012 acquisition of 37 stores from PCF Saleco and the Jumpin Jimmy’s chain of stores in Illinois. Those deals nearly doubled the company’s size.
