Isernio’s Sausage, the number one producer of fresh chicken sausage in the U.S., is proud to offer their lean chicken sausage rolls in A&P grocery stores throughout the northeastern United States.

Headquartered in Kent, Washington, Isernio’s Sausage has been family owned and operated since Frank Isernio opened the doors in 1980. The son of first generation Italians, Frank was passionate about Italian cooking from a very young age. Though he began his career in pipefitting, Frank’s talent for authentic Italian cooking became apparent when he began sharing his famous fresh Italian  sausage with friends and family. Soon after, Frank’s loved ones began encouraging him to pursue his passion and sell his Italian sausage commercially. Isernio’s Sausage was born in the basement of a house converted to USDA specifications in a working-class neighborhood of Seattle, WA. Today Isernio’s Sausage is the number one manufacturer of fresh chicken sausage in the United States; offering both fresh pork and chicken sausage products, in many of the nation’s most popular grocery store chains.

The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, known to consumers as A&P, is one of the leading food retailers in the northeast. Established in 1859, the first A&P was located on the corner of Vesey St. and Church St. in New York City, New York. Today the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company operates more than 300 stores under the A&P, Food Basics, The Food Emporium, Pathmark, Superfresh and Waldbaum’s brands. Committed to offering fresh, quality food from local growers, bakers and manufactures; A&P works to support the businesses in the communities they serve.

Under a new and exclusive agreement, A&P will be offering Isernio’s fresh chicken sausage rolls in 287 of their stores. Having never sold their products in the region, this latest partnership for Isernio’s is a move to make Isernio’s gourmet sausage products available to a new market segment.  

“We could not be more excited to offer our products to A&P consumers throughout the northeast,” said Robert Kenney, Director of Sales for Isernio’s Sausage. “We have long since established a reputation as the fresh Italian sausage of choice among consumers in the western United States. This move will help us expand our reach and share our delicious, healthy products with an even larger customer base.”

The Isernio’s leadership team is already reporting a spike in online traffic from internet users, on the east coast; particularly within the recipe section of Isernio’s corporate website. As more and more consumers discover the health benefits of lean chicken sausage, Isernio’s expects to see those numbers continue to grow.

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2012

Isernio’s Sausage, the nation’s number one producer of fresh chicken sausage, is proud to announce that their products are now available in U.S. military commissaries.

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington and soon relocating to a new and expanded production facility in Kent, Washington to support their customer growth; Isernio’s Sausage is a family owned and operated business. After being encouraged by family and friends to produce and sell his famous fresh Italian sausage commercially, Frank Isernio founded Isernio’s Sausage in 1980. Today Isernio’s sells their fresh pork and chicken sausage in grocery stores throughout most major U.S. metropolitan areas. A second generation Italian, Frank’s story is an example of the American dream recognized.

American military commissaries have been serving the U.S. armed forces since 1867. Making household goods and groceries available to active duty military at an average savings of more than thirty percent, commissaries are one of the top benefits for modern military personnel. In fact, the U.S. military commissary program is one of the most important incentives used in the recruitment and retention of military professionals.

U.S. military commissaries originally served only those of officer rank or higher. In 1867 they began offering the same at-cost purchasing privileges to all active duty military. Today the U.S military maintains commissary locations worldwide. Focused on providing quality and value with every product they offer, the U.S. military commissary program is extremely selective when choosing their stock assortment. Goods are chosen based upon nutritional value, quality and popularity among service men and women.

Isernio’s Sausage was recently selected to be included in the U.S. military commissary stock assortment. Officially hitting commissary shelves within the United States this week, Isernio’s will be available in commissaries globally later this year.

“We could not be more excited or honored for the opportunity to make our products available to the brave men and women of our armed forces,” said Frank Isernio. “We know that our products will not only provide nutrition but comfort to military families as they selflessly serve our country.”

Honored to introduce their products to the hardworking families of the U.S. armed forces, Isernio’s is also offering a Military Cookbook. The downloadable cookbook includes some of their most popular pork and chicken sausage recipes and as well a special thanks to all of those who serve our country.

“Through the cookbook we aim to express our gratitude for all that these exceptional men and women do to protect our great country,” added Isernio.

In selling their line of fresh Italian chicken sausage within U.S. military commissaries, Isernio’s hopes to further expand their loyal customer base. Watch for more exciting announcements from Isernio’s Sausage as they continue to make their product line available to food lover’s and health conscious consumers nationwide.
