Bob Evans distributes a wide variety of refrigerated and frozen grocery products in 49 states and parts of Canada. The Bob Evans brand is a category leader in fresh sausage, refrigerated mashed potatoes and side dishes, and frozen breakfast. When you hear that Bob Evans Farms is committed to good food and great service, you may immediately think of our restaurants. Those same qualities stand behind our farm-fresh foods that our customers can enjoy at home every day. Over the past several years, Bob Evans Farms has expanded its food products division to include flavored sausage and complementary products such as refrigerated mashed potatoes, refrigerated slow-roasted entrees and frozen breakfast sandwiches. At the same time, we have never lost sight of our core food product – the original Bob Evans Sausage, which accounts for a strong percent of our sales volume. Based on customer response, we continue to introduce new items such as bratwurst, Italian grilling sausage, and frozen breakfast stuffers under the Bob Evans name. For wholesale solutions for businesses such as restaurants, convenience stores and vending, we have a Foodservice division, which manages a number of high-quality products — everything from Bob Evans Homestyle Sandiwches to Sausage Gravy.
