manufacturer of the Sea Best brand. “From
fish fillets and sea scallops, to farm and
domestic shrimp, we have many options
that are perfect for grilling.”
Beaver Street Fisheries is further capi-
talizing on the grilling trend with its
Grillman’s Franks brand. Introduced as a
line of all-beef franks in 2014, Grillman’s
is now offering a pork and beef blended
frank, an oversized variety and two bite-
size frank options. The entire line is pro-
duced with fresh—never frozen—meat.
“We realized there was a need for a
true premium frank, and we fulfilled that
need,” says Mark Frisch, executive vice president of
Beaver Street Fisheries.
“Beaver Street Fisheries has been in the food industry for more than 60 years, and we have incredibly high
standards for the products we produce. Our top quality
franks are no exception,” says Frisch.
This summer, Land O’Frost is rolling out a food
truck that will be sampling, among other products,
Simply Savory, a line of pre-cooked sausage sold in the
hot dog/dinner sausage case.
“The truck will be visiting different stores around
the country and grilling out in the parking lots, as well
as at community events, like parades, street fairs and
apple festivals,” says Shanta McGahey, senior brand
manager at Land O’Frost, based in Munster, Ind.
With Simply Savory—available in Italian with
Mozzarella and Peppers, Bacon and Cheddar, Chipotle
and Roasted Red Pepper, and Polish—sampling is key
to building sales, she adds.
“When people taste it everybody’s response is, ‘I
can’t believe this is only 140 calories’ because it tastes
just like a full-fat sausage,” McGahey says.
An extra draw for barbecuers is that Simply Savory
is fully cooked. “Grilling raw sausages outside can be a
problem knowing when they are done,” Mc Gahey says.
Man Cave Meats markets brats made from 100 percent pork shoulder, along with other grill-friendly
items like burgers and turkey patties.
“We are getting the word out about the quality of
our meats,” says Brandon Miller, media/PR manager at
Man Cave Foods, based in Minneapolis. “Historically,
bratwursts were made with the scraps of meat left at
the end of the day, so sometimes they would have a
grizzly bite, but ours are made with 100 percent pork
shoulder. Our most famous is our Buffalo Wing Style
with Bleu Cheese Pork Brat.”
Currently distributed throughout the Midwest, Man
Cave Meats have gained distribution into Safeway and
600 Kroger stores, and the company is in talks with
Target. “Our products are sold fresh and frozen, but
we are finding more retailers are putting them into the
fresh section, and some are even putting them into the
service butcher case, using little Man Cave Meats name
placards that we supply,” Miller says.
