With research from online food ordering platform Foodhub revealing apple pie as the nation’s most popular sweet pie, KaterBake has the perfect takeaway treat – Apple Fry Pies
Featuring a crisp, flaky pastry, a subtly spiced apple filling and recyclable cardboard sleeves for serving, the apple pies can be enjoyed on the go.
“When it comes to sweet grab and go options, you can’t go wrong with hot, hand-held apple fry pies,” says Gordon Lauder, MD of frozen food distributor Central Foods, which offers the KaterBake Apple Fry Pies to the fast food sector.
Enabling operators to compete with high street fast food chains, Gordon recommends adding handheld apple pies to the menu to encourage customers to trade up, and suggests teaming them with hot drinks to offer a meal deal. “They’re really versatile, “ he adds, “and can be eaten at any time of day including mid-morning or for a mid-afternoon snack during the traditional lull in trade.
“The grab and go market is on the rise, after being impacted negatively by the Covid pandemic, and offers the ideal opportunity for fast food operators to provide tasty, filling food that helps spread the feel-good factor.”
The 78g KaterBake Apple Fry Pies are suitable for vegans and can be deep fried from frozen in six minutes. They are available in cases of 40 and come with free cardboard serving sleeves.
