January 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // As the winter chill takes over most of the country, Bruegger's Bakery Café is bringing warmth to its guests with new breakfast and lunch offerings. Starting January 6, bakeries will offer a Maple & Sausage breakfast sandwich made with Vermont Maple cream cheese, French Toast bagel, eggs and sausage. For lunch Bruegger's will offer a combo of its Four Cheese Panini and Fire Roasted Tomato Soup – a childhood favorite, all grown up.
The Limited Time Only "Winter Warmth" menu items will be available from January 6 through March 9.
The Maple & Sausage breakfast sandwich features Bruegger's French Toast bagel, also available individually or in dozens to take home or to the office. The Vermont Maple cream cheese, always a favorite with guests, will remain on the menu as a permanent flavor in Bruegger's cream cheese line up.
"Our French Toast bagel and Vermont Maple cream cheese quickly became guest favorites when we featured them a year ago," said Philip Smith, Bruegger's Executive Chef. "This year we're bringing back the two favorites to create a sandwich that evokes a delicious platter of scrambled eggs, sausage and a stack of French toast dripping with maple syrup."
Complementing the Maple & Sausage breakfast sandwich, or any of Bruegger's morning treats, is this season's Golden French Toast® coffee from Green Mountain Coffee®. The Fair Trade Certified™ blend features the comforting flavors of maple and cinnamon.
For lunch, Bruegger's new soup and sandwich combo will warm guests' hearts without lightening their pocketbook. The combo includes Bruegger's popular Four Cheese and Tomato panini, a delicious grilled sandwich served on Bruegger's bakery fresh Hearty White bread, and Fire Roasted Tomato Soup. It's available for the low price of just $6.49 in most locations.
