Conagra Brands, Inc., Chicago, entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin, a producer of frozen breakfast and entrée flatbread sandwiches and division of Kangaroo Brands, Milwaukee, Wis.
"Adding the Sandwich Bros. business to our portfolio is another step in Conagra Brands' ongoing work to accelerate growth," says Sean Connolly, president and CEO of Conagra Brands. "This acquisition will bring Conagra unique capabilities and expertise within the frozen handheld category, which we look forward to leveraging for further growth and extension into additional Conagra brands."
Sandwich Bros. flatbread pocket sandwiches are filled with proteins such as 100% Angus beef, chicken raised without antibiotics, all-natural sausage and real Wisconsin cheese.
"We are extremely proud of what our team has accomplished in a few short years, and look forward to helping Conagra accelerate the growth of Sandwich Bros. products," says Salem Kashou, president of the Sandwich Bros. business and second-generation family member.
"We are very pleased with Conagra's shared enthusiasm of Sandwich Bros., and know they have the resources and expertise to continue our legacy. Our incredible growth over the past five years is attributed to the contributions from our loyal employees, business partners and consumers. For that, my brother John and I express our sincerest gratitude," adds George Kashou, founder and co-owner of the business.
