menu versatility: egg whites all day

Shake up Summer with Egg White Cocktails
You've probably already heard about the growing popularity of egg whites - on 39% more menus since 2009.* As an even healthier alternative to the already nutritious whole egg, whites are popping up on omelets, sandwiches, wraps, scrambles and skillets as well as popular desserts.
But it doesn't end there. Egg whites are also commonly used to create that alluring foam or frothiness in premium mixed drinks like this Pisco Sour recipe featuring Papetti's® Liquid Egg Whites.
So if you're already adding egg whites to your main menu, you may want to also shake up (literally) your drink menu!

Keep Coffee Fresh all Day... One Cup at a Time!
While 41% of adults report drinking soft drinks on a daily basis, significantly more - 61% - enjoy that daily cup of coffee.†
And not just any coffee. In 2014, 34% of adults noted daily consumption of "gourmet" coffee.
As a likely result of the increase in demand for fresh, premium coffee flavor, single-cup home brewing systems have also seen a dramatic rise in usage - up almost 50% over the last year.†
However, this trend isn't limited to home use. National Restaurant News reported earlier this month on Subway's intention to expand its adoption of Keurig systems in their operations. According to Subway's beverage manager, David Zambory, "Subway restaurants are a destination throughout the day, including at breakfast and we look forward to providing our customers with the freshest cup of coffee possible, no matter when they visit us."‡
