For the next several weeks the Shop Port, Think Local blog wants to introduce you to some of our local businesses. We want to spotlight a new business each week and show you something that makes them special.
This week we will start by introducing you to Sanfilippo’s Sentry and its Sanfilippo line of products.
In 2011, Sanfilippo’s Sentry launched a line of signature products at the store. The Sanfilippo brand includes wine, seasonings, ice cream toppings, marinara sauce and sausages. The store has been very pleased with the response to the current line of Sanfilippo products.
Sanfilippo wine is one of the most popular brands in the liquor department. The brand's green and yellow sausages have also been popular, especially during football season. The seasonings come in varieties from your every day garlic salt and poultry seasoning to new favorites like Kansas City steak rub and salad sensation.
The Sanfilippo brand aims to bring something different to the current set of products at the store. Sentry sampled Sanfilippo brand wine, Italian sausage, and marinara sauce at both Shop Port, Think Local events. Both events hailed a positive response from customers who may not have known about the brand before the sampling.
The goal of the Sanfilippo line of products is to bring customers a quality product at a quality price. Plans for the Sanfilippo brand in 2012 include introducing a line of pasta and a line of cheeses. These products are currently in the design stage and the goal is to have the product on the shelf before the end of the year. The Sanfilippo signature brand looks to bring something special to your neighborhood store.
We hope to continue to expand the line of products to include all the staples of the grocery store.
