Expansion Meets Increased Industry Demand for Menu Flexibility

GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kronos Foods, Inc. (www.kronosfoodsinc.com), a leading manufacturer of premium gyros and other Mediterranean and specialty foods, announced it will double flatbread capacity with its flatbread & flatbread pizza crust line. Kronos, the branded leader of flatbread pita for the food service industry, has a growing business in flatbread pizza crusts as both a supplier to pizza manufacturers and restaurants.

With the state-of-the-art $5 million dollar flatbread & flatbread pizza crust line, Kronos has the ability to produce flatbreads from five inches to 20 inches, as well as a variety of shapes and thicknesses. This allows for more flexibility in menu options such as flatbread for appetizers and main dishes, as well as traditional round pizzas, pizza planks, and more. Additionally, Kronos incorporated freezing directly into the line to ensure quality is sealed immediately. This also prevents the crusts from sticking together and product damage, allowing restaurateurs to use the product one crust at a time.

"Flatbread is appearing on twice the number of menus compared to five years ago, and flatbread pizza crusts give restaurateurs a trendy way to update their menus," said Valerie Lester, Kronos' vice president of marketing. "By doubling Kronos' flatbread and flatbread pizza crust capacity, we are providing our customers with increased access to an easy-to-use ingredient option that can enhance virtually any menu format."

The new flatbread and flatbread pizza crust line also:

  • Uses a special oil blend creating a fuller flavor in the crust
  • Incorporates a fully-programmed line – from mixing to packaging – that synchronizes the process steps and delivers the same thickness and consistency from crust to crust
  • Decreases the mix time by three minutes per batch
