In its salute to the hot dog -- an American staple -- the new breakfast offering pairs a baked hot dog bun-shaped flaky biscuit and a link of Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage. The foodservice item is available from 6 a .m. to 10 a.m. for the price of $1.39. Kangaroo Express customers can also team the sausage and biscuit bun with their choice of a 16-ounce Bean Street Coffee or milk for $2.
"New guests will be able to start the morning with the classic taste of Jimmy Dean sausage and a flaky biscuit bun in a form they already know and love -- the hot dog," said Joe Venezia, senior vice president of operations for Kangaroo Express. "Perhaps the greatest discovery in bread since it was sliced, our biscuit bun shows that while biscuits were always delicious, they had room to improve. Breakfast is complete with a cup of hot, fresh Bean Street Coffee, all for just $2."
According to Kangaroo Express, the Jimmy Dean Sausage and Biscuit Bun is the result of the convenience store retailer's effort to provide an even wider variety of fresh, fast-food options for customers on the go.
Kangaroo Express is a division of Cary, N.C.-based The Pantry Inc., which operated 1,559 stores in 13 states as of Aug. 6.
