Products range from a variety of breakfast sandwiches, stuffed baguettes and authentic calzones, gourmet sandwiches including a hamburger, cheeseburger, chicken filet sandwich, a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and several sausage products enrobed in bread called "Wrap-Dogs!™". The list continues to grow as new products are added in response to changes in the consumer palate. Lettieri's Market Selects, a line of 5 bigger, better and bolder items was recently launched at NACS 2009 along with 3 new varieities of our Stuffed Breadsticks: Chorizo, Egg & Cheese, Buffalo Chicken and Apple.
