Director John Stueland share why our new chef-crafted sandwiches are the best
thing to happen to sliced bread! Exclusively available in our deli.
set out to reinvent and recreate our deli sandwiches and wraps. To begin, we
gathered a team of Lunds & Byerlys experts who could help us achieve our
goal of creating the best sandwiches possible.
could get into the kitchen and start experimenting, our team embarked on a
sandwich-eating mission – or, as we like to call it, research. We started at
home – we tasted our own Lunds & Byerlys sandwiches. Then we moved on to
local Twin Cities sandwiches, and soon we were travelling around the country
tasting regional delicacies.
New York, San Francisco, New Orleans, Iowa, Wisconsin and beyond in search of
unique ingredients and hot new flavors. Our research showed us Sriracha,
waffles and pickled veggies are trending. And people are interested in artisan
cheeses, spicy flavors and local ingredients like Wisconsin ham and cheese and
Minnesota turkey and tomatoes.
eating our way through the country, our next challenge was translating these
trends into delicious sandwiches and wraps for you to enjoy. We focused on
revamping tried and true favorites and creating new and innovative recipes that
could take lunchtime (or anytime for that matter) to a whole new level.
trials and tastings in the Research & Development kitchen finally led us to
a collection of delicious sandwiches, wraps and – new to Lunds & Byerlys –
sandwich rolls, tortillas, hearty breads, flaky croissants and lettuce leaves
filled with everything from Applewood bacon, herb-roasted turkey breast or Kobe
beef to crumbled Belgian waffles, chipotle aioli, curried quinoa or fresh
beginning to end, this process has truly been a team effort. In fact, once our
recipes were developed, we began an intensive, hands-on chef training session
so that each person became an expert in each step of the preparation. We’re
proud every cook in our kitchen plays a part in creating these fresh sandwiches
and wraps every single day.
research and our time in the kitchen allowed us to enhance our efforts of
sourcing the freshest, highest-quality ingredients possible. We’re excited for
you to try our new sandwiches and wraps. You can now find our delicious
creations in all Lunds & Byerlys deli departments!
