July 16, 2014 // Franchising.com // Birmingham, AL - Chester's International is streamlining customers' favorite Southern dishes with a line-up of ready-made side options worthy of Chester's unrivaled family recipe for delicious, double hand-breaded fried chicken.
"The new side dishes offer customers a variety of menu options," stated Laura C. West, Emerging Projects Manager at Chester's International. "They bring customers and retailers the best of both worlds. Customers still get to enjoy our classic Chester's recipes and retailers can serve these home-style dishes without the added complexity of fully preparing the items in-house."
Straight from Chester's kitchen come delicious menu items that reduce preparation time and guarantee product consistency. The new ready-made dishes include Baked Beans, Mashed Potatoes & Gravy, Cole Slaw, Green Beans and Mac + Cheese. All were created using Chester's time-tested family recipes, are easy to prepare and ready to serve in minutes.
The new side dishes bring bold, just like homemade flavors and pair well with all menu items. Smoky, sweet Baked Beans are slow-simmered to perfection and the Green Beans are tender, juicy and full of flavor. Chester's Mashed Potatoes taste just like Grandma's and are served with delicious, savory brown gravy. The new Mac + Cheese is rich and creamy, and the Cole Slaw is cool with a tangy twist. Southern-style white gravy is best poured over fluffy biscuits or mashed potatoes.
Chester's ready-made side dishes will be available in participating retail locations starting this month.
