Swiss Farms Adds More Meal Solutions
BROOMALL, Pa. — Swiss Farms has expanded Fresh Solutions, its freshly prepared meal line, with the addition of signature meals.
The Delaware County-based drive-thru market also hired Justin Vignola as director of fresh food/new product development to head up development of the line.
"We are very excited to welcome Justin to the Swiss Farms family," said Scott Simon, CEO of Swiss Farms. "This is another in a series of steps to move our stores in a new direction and we think Justin is instrumental in helping to forge this fresh food journey forward."
New to the menu, fully prepared, healthful meals by Modern Palate under 600 calories are available at Swiss Farms. Starting Nov. 7, the meals will be priced at an introductory price of $7.99 for the week. Options include blackened chicken, chicken parmesan, meatloaf, grilled flat iron steak or pulled pork, each of which includes two sides.
Fresh Solutions also includes the Swiss Signature Deli Salads, Dips, Hoagies and Soups line. Salads start at $3.99 and include cranberry chicken salad, home-style chicken salad, Lancaster County egg salad and albacore tuna salad.

According to Swiss Farms, the company will continue to develop and add to the menu with Vignola's assistance in his newly created role. He will serve as the purchasing decision maker and act as in-house chef, testing and crafting various items in the kitchen.
