Costco stores over the U.S. have said farewell to the Polish sausage on the bistro menu and invited new vegetarian food as the chain grasps more beneficial choices, Costco’s Chief Financial Officer Richard Galanti told the Seattle Times.
The chain’s soda and hot dog combo first hit Costco’s menu in 1985 and have been offered for $1.50 from that point forward. While Costco will keep its beef sausage on the menu– the combo holds to some degree a notorious status– expelling the Polish dog alternative is as yet a huge move for the retail giant.
“We’re known for that frank,” Costco fellow benefactor Jim Sinegal expressed only 10 years back. “That is something you don’t upset.” Sinegal ventured down from the organization’s Board of Directors this year. Presently, the part-based retailer’s menu, and additionally its expanding number of vegan and natural retail alternatives, appear to point toward a more advantageous future for the chain.
Galanti said the menu currently includes vegetarian açai fruit bowls, which appeared a month ago. Açai is a South American fruit known for its high cancer prevention agent and omega-unsaturated fat substance. Costco additionally included a plant-based protein serving of mixed greens called the “Al Pastor Salad.” He remarked that numerous clients haven’t understood it’s meatless.
“This new plant-based protein serving of mixed greens, I realize that excites you,” Costco Chief Executive Craig Jelinek remarked at an investor meeting in January. “In any case, it is good for health. What’s more, uh, really, it tastes quite great, in the event that you like those sorts of things. I attempted it once.”
With the loss of the Polish hot dog, the franchise is probably going to try including more advantageous plant-based choices — maybe the Beyond Meat Sausage or Bratwurst may be on offer soon. The franchise keeps on offering more natural sustenance than Whole Foods Market every year, and its vegetarian contributions are expanding. Not long-ago Costco propelled a natural vegetarian burger from Don Lee Farms. The burger seems to “bleed” much like market pioneer Beyond Meat’s well known Beyond Burger. As indicated by ongoing sales information, Costco sold in excess of one million of the Don Lee Farms burgers in the past 60 days from the launch.
Costco says it will at present offer the Polish hot dog at a portion of its stores anyway.
