NORWALK, CONN. — Pepperidge Farm, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. and celebrity chef Jeff Mauro are partnering in a new promotional campaign. The nationwide effort, “Sandwich with the Best,” launched Sept. 6 and continues through June 2017. The campaign includes new premium sandwich recipes, four signature how-to videos, bundled product offerings and exclusive in-store merchandising activation at Wal-Mart locations.
“We’re embarking on a journey to make sandwiches exciting again,” said Chris Foley, senior vice-president and chief marketing officer, Pepperidge Farm. “Pepperidge Farm is committed to bring premium, affordable sandwiches that fit your tastes and lifestyle.”
