This is a story about a young couple from Lake Charles, Louisiana who had an unusual ambition. They believed they could create a world-class sandwich shop that would satisfy and delight the increasingly sophisticated tastes of people around the country. Melissa and Josh traveled to Hyde Park, NY, where they engaged consultants from the world-famous Culinary Institute of America to help develop their idea. There they challenged four Certified Master Chefs to create the most delicious sandwiches possible—using ingredients from around the world–with no restrictions on their creativity. Thanks to the collaboration of CIA’s Master Chefs, the sandwich offerings at Street Breads combine fresh proteins, produce and herbs with a simplicity of presentation that puts the taste of the main ingredients front and center.

client_logo-traderjoesTRADER JOES
It all started in the 50s… Would you believe we started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It’s true. Way back in 1958. We were called Pronto Markets. In ‘67, our founder, the original Trader Joe, changed our name (yes, to Trader Joe’s) and the way we do business.

We buy direct from suppliers whenever possible, we bargain hard to get the best price, and then pass the savings on to you.
If an item doesn’t pull its weight in our stores, it goes away to gangway for something else.
We buy in volume and contract early to get the best prices.
Most grocers charge their suppliers fees for putting an item on the shelf. This results in higher prices… so we don’t do it.
We keep our costs low — because every penny we save is a penny you save.

It’s not complicated. We just focus on what matters — great food + great prices = Value
