Morganton, NC (May 9, 2007) –American families are always on the go and there just isn’t time for a hot breakfast. Grab a bowl of cold cereal or out the door with a snack bar. Not anymore, thanks to Burke County’s own Cathead Foods, LLC and their newest product line, GoStax ™ Heat-and-Eat Pancakes.
These eat-in-the-box, ready in only one minute, pancakes are the creation of Tom Johnson, founder of Cathead Foods. Johnson made a special guest appearance on the “John Boy and Billy Big Show” morning radio show, Thursday, May 10.
During the interview, which was broadcast on affiliate stations in nearly 20 states throughout the eastern United States, John Boy and Billy sampled GoStax pancakes. “Man, these are awesome pancakes,” John Boy said. “Some of best I’ve ever had, really. And in a little box you just microwave and they’re ready to go.”
“A lot of that frozen stuff you pop in the microwave, it sounds good but it doesn’t actually deliver.” Billy said during the interview. “These are actually really good.”
Created, marketed and produced in their Burke County, North Carolina processing facility, Cathead Foods’ Go Stax™ were first introduced through wholesale distributors and convenience stores. Growing to vendors in 19 northeastern states within their first year, GoStax™ debuted in the retail market last fall at Compare Foods in Morganton.
GoStax™ are quickly becoming a breakfast staple. From one local grocery to approximately 100 Food City stores in three states at the end of first quarter, GoStax™ will be available in South Carolina Piggly Wiggly stores in June.
GoStax™ blends 80% real maple syrup and 100% real butter into pats that melt over the pancakes as they heat in the microwave. In only a minute, piping hot, great tasting pancakes are ready. No peeling butter pats or struggling with tiny containers of syrup. Go Stax ™ are ready to eat right from the container. GoStax ™ are available in buttermilk, blueberry, mini and, most recently, buttermilk with North Carolina sausage.
Cathead Foods, LLC is located off I-40 at exit 107 in Morganton. Currently the company has eight employees baking about 10,000 pancakes a week. Over the next several months Johnson anticipates growing to 15 to 20 full-time workers to meet retail demand. GoStax ™ are still available in vending machines and convenience stores as well as Cathead Foods’ great-tasting sandwiches, snack foods and desserts.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Cathead Foods’ products goes to support the work of “Hands of God,” which is a medical mission dedicated to helping children and communities in need. Support ranges from AIDS treatment, OB care, orphanages to water systems. Contact Tom with any questions about the organization.
