Krabbycakes Junior Mrs Fridays 057983 1192x542In celebration of National Seafood Month, October is a time to shine the spotlight on sustainable fisheries, their economic benefits, and the health benefits offered by eating a diet rich in seafood. 

The U.S. has some of the largest, most sustainably managed fisheries in the world, and we’re the global leaders in sustainable seafood.

There is no doubt that our fisheries provide recreation for our costal communities, but they are also big business. 

Our economy, as well as recreational and small-scale tribal fishermen, and large-scale vessels depend on our fish supply to make a living. According to Fishwatch.gov, as of 2015, fisheries contributed $208 billion to the U.S. economy and supported 1.6 million jobs. 

On another note, when it comes to our diet, seafood provides a wealth of nutrients. Not only is seafood a source of high-quality protein, it’s rich in vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and it’s low in saturated fats. All which play a role in brain development, cardiovascular and immune health, and the development of strong bones. 

Now that you have a short background of the “protein of the sea”, what are you waiting for? October - National Seafood Month - is here! It’s time to add a few seafood selections to your menu or tweak your current menu to offer new entrees. 

Head over to FoodservicePromos.com and grab our latest King & Prince rebate. 

Save up to $500 on the original Mrs. Friday’s Krabbycakes®, crafted with a blend of of real snow crab meat, fresh cream, real butter, seasonings and premium seafood. Whether baked or fried, Krabbycakes® are sure to be a great addition to your menu.

Foodservice Promos & Fall Harvest

Posted by

 vegetable basket harvest gardenMost of you have probably noticed - summer fruits and vegetables are slowly disappearing.

Along with the disappearance of “hot temp” produce like strawberries, cherries, zucchini, summer squash, and watermelon, are summer temperatures. 

This may sadden some, but look on the bright side, autumn is here. You know what that means - mild temperatures, which create the perfect growing conditions for fall vegetables. 

It’s time to consider menu changes, and start implementing all of those hearty vegetables, such as parsnips, gourds, swiss chard, and sweet potatoes, as well as colorful fruits like pears, kumquats, apples, and pomegranates. 

As colder temps descend on us, diners will yearn for comfort foods - soups, chilis, stews, lasagnas, pot pies, and mac & cheese, risotto, and grilled cheese varieties. All packed with nature’s autumn gifts. 

If you’re preparing to revamp your menu, and stock up on inventory, you’ve come to the right place. Foodservice Promos is your one-stop shop for (FREE) valuable, foodservice rebates. 

Whether you need baked goods and seafood to accompany your fall menu, or tabletop equipment and supplies, Foodservice Promos has you covered.

The Food Bowl Trend, Will It Ever End?

Posted by

noodle 2509040 1920Food bowls have been around for quite sometime. Think soups, salads, breakfast cereals, and desserts - everyday American food. But, a change took place in late 2015 into 2016. 

Now in 2017, “bowls” aka “Buddha Bowls”, are a super trend with no end in sight. 

From domestic kitchens and food trucks to fast casual and fine-dining restaurants, there has been rapid adoption of bowls.

crabskewerSummer officially begins mid-June, although for most of us, Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff. And what does Memorial Day mean – months of great food! Not to mention, sun, fun, and beaches.

The thing is, everyone is on-the-go during the summer, so light, sharable, finger food is most sought-after; think “street food” and food truck fare. While grilled burgers, hot dogs, and ribs are summer staples, they’re boring. But, you can’t argue with tradition, right? Wrong!
