Rudolph Foods, a manufacturer of pork rinds and one of the largest manufacturers of private and branded label snack products, has announced its expansion into the restaurant segment. Rudolph Foods is bringing pellets and pork rinds to casual dining, quick-service, food trucks and upscale restaurants across the country beginning this summer.
Recognizing that operators are continually reinventing menus to optimize customer visits and tickets, Rudolph Foods has identified an opportunity for the pork rinds snack.
Pork rinds offer an alternative to traditional sides such as potato chips and French fries, an opportunity for a unique appetizer when served with dips, and can be used as a crunch coating for fish, poultry and beef.
"We're thrilled with the possibilities this new take on rinds will offer restaurateurs and chefs by adding a creative element to their menus," said Mark Singleton, vice president of Marketing and Sales, Rudolph Foods. "Innovation is key in the restaurant segment and the food category overall, and we're excited to work with yet a new set of customers, and to make even greater strides in helping pork rinds, overall, to become a household favorite."
