Brazi Bites has announced new distribution for its Pizza’nadas, Homestyle Breakfast Sandwiches, and Brazilian Cheese Bread in major retailers, including Target, Walmart, Publix, Costco, and H.E.B. As the number one frozen gluten-free snack brand, the national expansion follows on the heels of the initial launches this summer and further positions the Latin-founded company as a leader in the frozen food space. Pizza’nadas will be available at select Target, Walmart and Publix locations nationwide, while the Homestyle Breakfast Sandwiches will be available at select Target nationwide and H-E-B in Texas. Brazi Bites’ best-selling Cheddar and Parmesan Cheese Bread will be available at several Costco regions including North West, South East, Texas, and Canada.
Frozen foods are a "pandemic powerhouse," growing 21 percent last year to $65.1 billion in retail sales, according to a report from the American Frozen Food Institute. Launched in 2021, both Brazi Bites Pizza’nadas and Homestyle Breakfast Sandwiches fill a much needed gap in the market created by surging consumer demand for deliciously convenient and better-for-you frozen breakfasts and snacks.
“In addition to our classic cheese bread, the new Pizza’nadas and Homestyle Breakfast Sandwiches are exciting innovations unlike anything in the frozen aisle. They speak to specific white spaces in the frozen aisle: cleaning up traditional pizza bites, and bringing the first-ever single-serve, gluten-free breakfast sandwich to the market,” said Junea Rocha, co-founder and CMO of Brazi Bites. “Our consumer research shows shoppers are actively searching for a pepperoni pizza bite alternative that tastes amazing and is made with clean ingredients. In addition, there are limited gluten-free breakfast sandwiches on the market, and no single-serve options, yet handheld frozen breakfasts are driving overall growth of this category according to IRI. We’re excited to partner with new retailers and expand our current relationships to make our delicious better-for-you foods available to more Americans from coast to coast.”
