Spar Scotland wholesaler and retailer CJ Lang & Son has launched a new food-to-go concept.
Named CJ’s, the new concept promises a “quick and tasty food brand” and forms part of a significant investment by the Dundee-based business. The company expects the CJ brand to be present in all company-owned stores by the end of March 2021.
The CJ’s brand will exist alongside the group’s already extensive food-to-go range which includes Rollover Hotdogs, Costa Coffee, F’real Milkshakes, Skwishee and Tango Ice Blast.
The rollout programme will also include a hot breakfast and lunch offer along with support from local bakers Asher’s, Browning’s the Bakers, JG Ross, McGhee’s and Stuart’s for a range of cakes, sweet treats and hot savouries.
Stephen Brown, Head of Food-to-go at CJ Lang, commented: “We are delighted to be working with so many local Scottish bakers as well as large iconic brands to deliver our new CJ’s food-to-go offering. This adds to the stable of existing brands we work with, the great local bakers and the multitude of Scottish based suppliers.
“We have very ambitious plans to grow food-to-go within our Spar estate in Scotland. It is one of the fastest growing sectors of the eating out market and as a forward-thinking convenience retailer we are making a huge investment to ensure we are at the forefront of this sector.”
