August Header - Back to School

August Promotion Ideas

  • Feature waffles, pancakes, bagels, yogurts, fruits, juices, egg substitutes and cheeses to create the perfect “fuel for school” breakfasts.
  • Provide recipes that can make the family morning routine before school less hectic and healthier (yogurt, fruit and granola; bagel with peanut butter; waffles with fruit; etc.)
  • Offer taste tests and demos of the many convenient, tasty “ready to heat-and-eat” breakfast sandwiches.
  • Work with a local school and “host” a breakfast in their cafeteria featuring healthy frozen and refrigerated food selections – have the school nurse deliver a nutritious message highlighting the importance of eating breakfast before school. Provide specific product coupons for kids to take home to their families.
  • Consider a kid-friendly weekend “cooking class” event in the “cool” aisles where you can feature making smoothies (using yogurts, juices, and frozen fruits) – the perfect after-school snack.

More Ideas!

August 25 is National Banana Split Day

On this special day, create an ice cream “event” in the frozen aisles, providing customers with ice cream samples and a chance to create a “mini” banana split of their liking in-store. Offer special deals on ice cream and all of the delicious toppings for this favorite treat.


August is National Sandwich Month

Select a weekend in August and showcase ready to heat and eat sandwich selections in the frozen food aisles. Host a “Grilled Cheese Party” in the refrigerated aisle, and demo the many variations of this all-American favorite using non-traditional cheeses and unique combinations.
