Mary B's Biscuits Now Available for Breakfast On-the-Go!

PENNSAUKEN, NJ--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2015) - J&J Snack Foods Corp. (NASDAQ: JJSF) today announced entry into the frozen breakfast category with Mary B's Buttermilk Biscuit Melts. Offering two popular breakfast favorites: sausage, egg & cheese and bacon, egg & cheese Mary B's Biscuits have now become a meal! These handmade biscuit melts are made with whole eggs, real cheese and premium meats.

According to Technomic's report, 37% of consumers skip breakfast because of lack of time, and while 20% of people eat breakfast away from home, that doesn't mean they're solely going through the drive-thru. Most consumers source their breakfast at home to save money.1 Eggs dominate this meal time with 53% of consumers agreeing that eggs are good for their health, according to Technomic.2

"We are excited to enter into a new category in frozen retail and offer consumers a meal solution for their on-the-go needs," said Tony Hess, Vice President/General Manager for Hom/Ade Foods, Inc. "Mary B's is a leader in frozen biscuits, frozen breakfast is on the rise, and these melts seem to be the perfect fit."

Hom/Ade Foods, Inc., acquired by J&J Snack Foods Corp. in 2007, has been manufacturing and distributing Mary B's biscuits for over 20 years. It is a natural progression for this brand to expand beyond the frozen dough category and into one of the fastest growing categories in retail frozen food today!
