Rupari Food Services announced today the launch of five new Tony Roma’s heat and serve products for the freezer case.

The new items include: Tony Roma’s Pulled Pork, Tony Roma’s Rib Bites, Tony Roma’s St. Louis Spareribs, Tony Roma’s Country Style Boneless Ribs, and Tony Roma’s Pot Roast.

The frozen products are designed to allow the consumer to make their own flavor choices. Items are fully cooked and ready to serve. Several of the products come with a separate sauce packet allowing customers to use Tony Roma’s signature Original Sauce or simply use their own favorite sauce.

The new products range in size from 24 to 32 ounces. The “ready to eat” products are found in the freezer section and are fully cooked, ready to heat and serve in 5 minutes or less.

Rupari Food Services is also expanding the Tony Roma’s refrigerated retail line which now includes 18-ounce tubs of Tony Roma’s Pulled Pork, Tony Roma’s Shredded Beef, and a 20-ounce tub of Tony Roma’s Rib Bites. These grab and go items found in the refrigerated case are also fully cooked and served in Tony Roma’s Original BBQ Sauce.

The Tony Roma’s Rib Bites are an appetizer portion, while the pulled pork and shredded beef tubs offer full entrée solutions. These items are being added to the current line of refrigerated Tony Roma’s Baby Back Ribs and Tony Roma’s St. Louis style Ribs which are currently available in thousands of grocery stores across the U.S.
