About Us, What's New

62nd Anniversary!

By Cameron Madge October 14, 2014

Happy 62nd Anniversary to Roche Bros.!

On October 16, 1952, our father and uncle, the late Pat and Bud Roche opened their first store in Roslindale.

Their slogan – “no better meat sold anywhere” – spoke to their focus on quality. Pat and Bud’s belief in the “Golden Rule” assured great customer service.

Our business grew over the years, opening stores, and becoming a part of the local communities. Today, we have 18 Roche Bros. and Sudbury Farms stores serving the Bay State and employ more than 4,700 associates. Over 300 of these associates have worked with the Roche Bros. family for more than 20 years!

It’s our 62nd anniversary and what better way to celebrate than by eating cake! Visit any of our stores on October 16th and enjoy some cake. We want all of our customers to be a part of our celebration.

As we mark this milestone, we are excited about what lies ahead! In early 2015, Roche Bros. will open our first store in downtown Boston, in the historic Filene’s Basement location.

We’re also celebrating our newest type of store, Brothers Marketplace, which opened this summer in Weston and Medfield. Come check out your neighborhood market with a focus on local artisan foods and scratch-baked pastries.

Now is a great time to join the Roche Bros. team and we are hiring. Check out all of our open positions here: http://www.rochebros.com/careers/

Your family deserves best! Here’s to a bright future of serving you, from our family to yours.

What’s New: An Apple A Day

By Cameron Madge September 30, 2014

Apple Basket
At Roche Bros., we can feel fall in the air and we’re excited to celebrate the abundance of apples, fall’s favorite fruit.

Take a walk through our produce department and see the wide selection of apple varieties. Whether you’re looking to sink your teeth into an apple for a snack, bake a pie or anything in between, we have apple varieties for every taste and purpose!
Bake them into our recipe for All-American Apple Pie.

Hollow out some larger apples and use them as a vessel for this Apple-Cranberry Warm-Up, a hot apple cider with a hint of cranberry for a cool fall evening.

Try this simple recipe for Crescent Cheddar Apple Pie: buttery crescent roll dough filled with apples and cheddar cheese and topped with cinnamon and sugar.

Stop by the grocery aisle for some apple butter to spread on your morning toast. And savor apple cider donuts from our bakery.

Here at Roche Bros., now is the time to enjoy your tried-and-true apple favorites and find something new to try, too!

Tasty Tailgating Roundup 2014

By Cameron Madge September 05, 2014

Pin It

Tasty Tailgating Football season kicks off this weekend, and we hope you’re as excited as we are. Whether you’re a fan of the game or not, there’s just something about gathering with family and friends on a crisp autumn afternoon, watching football, and of course, indulging in your favorite foods and snacks.

Don’t come up short when game time rolls around on Sunday. We’re your game day destination when it comes to food, and our Tasty Tailgating offerings are all done up and ready to go. Sit back, relax, enjoy the game, and let us bring the “Tasty” to your next tailgating party.


First Half

Everything starts with the Guacamole Outpost.  Gameday weekends feature fresh guacamole, made to order right at our Guacamole Carts and works great as a dip, or even on sandwiches. If you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person, fresh Hass Avocadoes are available in our Produce department.

New this season, our Cheese Department is now carrying Tasty Tailgating Snack Platters! With a few different varieties available, there’s something here for everyone with different combinations of crackers, cheese and toppings.

If you swing by our Kitchen, you’ll see a massive assortment of appetizers and finger foods that will fit just about any party. Try some of our homemade dips, such as our 7 Layer Dip or Buffalo Chicken Dip with your favorite crackers or chips. We even have other favorite appetizers, like mozzarella sticks, or stuffed potato skins.

Football season is prime time for our Wing Bar. Your guests and family will love the assortment of flavors available, including our new Sriracha Glazed Wings and Roasted Garlic Wings, as well as classic favorites like Bourbon, Honey BBQ, or our famous Honeystung Drummies. The best part? They’re all served hot and ready to eat!

If you’re looking for a little something that will catch everyone’s attention, our Bakery’s Bloomin’ Bread has become a staple of our Tailgating spread.  Loaded with mozzarella and pepperoni, your guests will pull it apart in seconds!


Second Half

Make sure you save room for the main course! When half-time rolls around, it’s time to start cooking. Our USDA Prime Burgers are an excellent choice if you’re going to be cooking on the grill. Switch things up a bit by trying on of our flavored burgers such as the Steakbomb burger, Bacon and Cheddar, or Portabella Swiss.

We also have Italian sausage and Bratwurst available, which are always a crowd pleaser. Grill up and finish off with your favorite toppings like onions or peppers.

If the weather is bad, or if you don’t want the hassle of cooking a big meal, our BBQ Pulled Pork and St. Louis Ribs are both excellent choices to just heat and serve. Of course you’ll need a couple sides too. Cole Slaw or Potato Salad from our Deli offer easy options that your guests will love.

Finish everything off with some desserts from our Bakery. Football Field Cakes are a perfectly sized to satisfy the kids at a great price point, and Football Decorated Half Moons are a fun and creative way to get them involved in the game! In addition, our Brownie and Cookie snack plates are great for smaller gatherings and give your guests a taste of gourmet cookies and brownies.

We hope you found something that peaks your interest, and to see you this weekend and every weekend during the football season to help with your tailgating parties. Enjoy the season, and of course, go Pats!



Back to School at Roche Bros.!

It’s Back-to-School Time at Roche Bros.

Fall is in the air and the kids’ backpacks are packed with clean notebooks and sharpened pencils. Summer flew by and it’s time to get back to school!
That means the days are going to be busy and families need to be ready with easy, tasty and healthy options to fill lunch boxes each and every day. It also means you need to be prepared with quick-and-easy breakfast choices and hearty dinners that will satisfy the whole family. From our family to yours – and our kitchen to your table – Roche Bros. has everything you need to make an easy transition back to school.


Serve breakfast that’s full of protein and easy to make in advance with eggs as a centerpiece. Make grab-and-go egg “muffins” by mixing eggs with your favorite chopped vegetables and cheeses and baking them in the oven in muffin tins. If you prepare them on Sunday, they’ll be ready for the week. Cook up bacon or sausage, too, and make sure you have enough to reheat.
Buy frozen waffles or pancakes and toast them right when the kids wake up. Be sure the kids’ favorite cereals are stored at their height, and that the milk is easily accessible. And have cut up fruit and yogurt ready to serve. We have fruit already chopped for you in the produce department and a host of yogurt options for all tastes and dietary preferences in the dairy aisle!

The Lunch Box

The deli department is stocked and ready with everything you need to make sandwiches for your kids’ lunch boxes. Thumann’s has a wide array of healthful deli products, with turkey for every taste from maple and honey to mesquite smoked to buffalo, as well as ham, roast beef, cheese and more.  You can also find all of your favorites from Dietz and Watson, which never uses artificial colors, flavors, fillers, extenders or MSG.  At our deli counter, we’re ready to slice your deli meat to order, also offering natural deli selections from Applegate, Plainville Farms and Al Fresco, all free from antibiotics, MSG, nitrates, phosphates, and carrageenan. And don’t forget to pick up a fresh loaf of bread from our bakery!

For some kids, lunch must include a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Make your son or daughter’s sandwich more exciting with Full Circle Organic Peanut Butter and Santa Cruz Organic Fruit Spreads in Concord Grape or Seedless Red Raspberry. Or try almond butter for a change. For nut-free options, select from SunButter Sunflower Spread or WOWBUTTER School Safe Soy Spread.
For a unique and fun sandwich twist, skip the bread! It’s a great way to pack a gluten-free lunch, or just to make a change that will surprise the kids and add something new to the lunch-box rotation. Take slices of ham or turkey from the deli, and roll them up with tomatoes, cucumbers and mustard or other fillings of your choice. Or use bite-sized pieces to make a meat, veggie and cheese skewer. Why not try making an apple-wich, with apple slices instead of bread, for a sandwich that will make kids smile? Cut up apples in thick, round slices for the outside and fill them with peanut butter or SunButter to make a sandwich. Try the same concept with cucumber slices with cream cheese or turkey and cheese in the middle.
On the side, include snacks and sides that are easy to pack, from mini-bags of SkinnyPop Popcorn to cheese and crackers to yogurt in a tube. See all sorts of great options here: Easy & Healthy Lunch Box Snacks

Be sure to super-size the vegetable and fruit contents of your kids’ lunch boxes with our Top Tips for Lunch Box Fruits and Veggies. If you want to add a little treat, try Nut-Free School Safe Snacks, something sweet from Sweet P’s Bake Shop or one of Our Bakery’s Cookies.  For drinks, the grocery and dairy aisles are lined with small bottles of spring water, Horizon Organic Lowfat Milk Boxes, Honest Kids Juice Drinks in individual servings, and more.

Sitting down to dinner

With a little preparation, you can enjoy satisfying dinners for your family without having to scramble.
When you’re cooking, keep weekday meals simple. Roast salmon with fresh herbs, lemon and oil or make fish on the grill while the weather is still nice.  Serve burgers with all the condiments and a side of salad and fries.

Make dinner healthy and delicious with Roche Bros. salmon burgers or marinated grill-ready kabobs you can toss on the grill. Or stop in Our Kitchen for skewers that are ready to heat and serve!
For dinner for everyone, and maybe even leftovers for lunch the next day, take home Roche Bros.’ ever-popular rotisserie chicken and turkey. It’s made fresh daily, but don’t forget about 5-Buck-Cluck on Thursdays, when our rotisserie chickens are only $5 each! And for a hearty meal full of fresh chicken and vegetables, try Our Kitchen’s Own Pot Pies.

From all of us at Roche Bros., we wish you lots of fun – and great meals – as the kids start back at school!

Greetings from Maine!

By Cameron Madge August 07, 2014

Greetings from Maine! As we roll on into August, we’re celebrating all the things we love about “Vacationland” with a Lobster and Clam Bake.  From fresh lobsters and clams, to wild Blueberries and delicious desserts, Maine has a little something for everyone, so kick back with family and friends, and enjoy these


A “Berry” Good Breakfast

Grab some Maine Blueberries and treat the whole family to blueberry waffles or pancakes for breakfast with Stonewall Kitchen’s Farmhouse Pancake and Waffle Mix. For the maximum Maine effect, use Kate’s Butter and Real Butter Milk and top with Stonewall’s Maine Maple Syrup.

For something a little lighter, Blueberry loaf breads and coffeecakes are always a favorite! Pair them with any of Stonewall’s Jams or Jellies – made in York, ME – pour yourself a cup of coffee, and enjoy a nice brunch.


The “Maine” Attraction

Of course when it comes to Maine, it’s all about the seafood.  Our Live n’ Kickin’ Maine Lobsters are the highlight of any meal.  For something a little simpler – and less alive – our Chef Ready Lobster Tails are great for cooking out on the grill, without all the prep work needed for a full, live lobster.  Serve either with our Super Sweet Butter & Sugar Corn for a delicious, Maine inspired meal.

The Lobster Shack is also in full swing, serving up our own, fresh made Maine Lobster Rolls. Check it out on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between 4:30 and 6:30pm.

If you’re more in the mood for clams, our Kitchen’s New England Clam Chowder is sure to impress.  Compliment it with some Oyster Crackers and a side of our Bakery’s Fresh Baked Corn Bread for a meal that will leave you and your family in a state of pure Maine bliss.  If you’ve got a bit more of a DIY attitude, our Maine Steaming Clams are the perfect choice for any of your favorite clam recipes.


Mousse or Moose?

The Maine celebration doesn’t stop after the main course! Enjoy a slice of Maine’s official State Dessert by picking up one of our Bakery’s Wild Maine Blueberry Pies, and serve with a scoop of Gifford’s Ice Cream, made in Skowhegan, ME.

On the other hand, Maine’s official “State Treat” get’s some love from our Bakery, where an assortment of Whoopie Pies are available to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Steve’s Whoopie Pies offer a wide assortment of flavors, including Red Velvet, Double Chocolate and more, or pick up one of our own Character Decorated, or Lemon Raspberry Whoopie Pies. Finally, if you’re family is absolutely crazy about whoopie pies, The “Big Whoop” – a cake sized whoopie pie – might be just what you need.

Come down to Roche Bros. this week and treat yourself to your own little slice of Maine, right in your own backyard!

Happy 4th of July from Roche Bros.!

You know summer is in full swing when July 4th is upon us! At Roche Bros., we have everything you need to celebrate Independence Day with family and friends and make it delicious.

From that sweet and tangy BBQ taste to desserts in patriotic shapes and colors, here are our suggestions to make your Fourth of July special:

Heating Things Up

If you’re looking to heat things up by firing up the grill – or want a little spice at your cookout – we have all the special items you need to make memories at your BBQ.

For the main course, offer our Certified Angus Prime Grinds and Fenway Franks.

Don’t forget to stop in the bakery for the rolls! And look for gluten-free BBQ options in the grocery aisle.

Make it a Rib Fest with all sorts of fresh ribs in our meat department, with your favorite barbecue sauce. You can also find grill-ready ribs in the meat case, with your choice of sauces. Or bring home a ready-to-go BBQ from Our Kitchen with BBQ Pulled Pork, St. Louis BBQ Ribs and BBQ Jumbo Chicken Leg Quarters! Just heat and serve, without even lighting up the grill.

Add some real cache to your stars-and-stripes celebration with our new Chef Ready Lobster Tails. Try them plain or marinated, with your choice of Lemon Rosemary, Lime Vinaigrette, Roasted Garlic, Sweet Teriyaki or Sriracha BBQ.

Show off your cooking skills by Grilling Vegetables to enjoy on the side. From corn on the cob grilled in the husk to rainbow grilled vegetables on skewers, you really can’t go wrong. Or pick up some hot side dishes from Our Kitchen. Twice Baked Potatoes and Mom’s Baked Beans are sure to be devoured.

When you’re ready for a toast, check out our primer on pairing your grilled meats with wines to enhance their flavor.

Playing it Cool

With the sun beating down, some of your guests will surely want to play it cool. Make sure you have these crisp, cool options available for them to enjoy:

Salads: Always a crowd-pleaser, find Bud Roche’s original recipe Homemade Potato Salad in our deli department.

It’s also a great time to try something new! We have four new savory salads in our deli. Select from spicy Sriracha Chicken Salad, zesty Basil Tomato Tortellini Salad, crunchy Edamame Cranberry with Walnuts Salad and fresh Orzo Kale Salad. If you can’t decide, serve more than one!

Our Kitchen is also brimming with fresh new takes on salad that are full of flavor and packed with healthy ingredients. Try Summer Vegetable Couscous Salad and Three-Bean Kale Salad for the 4th.

Dips: Our Kitchen’s Guacamole, Seven-Layer Dip and Buffalo Chicken Dip go well with crackers, chips and your crudite platter.

Cheese: For this weekend’s festivities, why not make your own cheese board? Roche Bros.’ cheese department has everything you need. A traditional French cheese board includes four cheeses: one made with sheep’s milk, one made with cow’s milk, one goat cheese and one blue cheese.

Try Locatelli Pecorino Romano, President Brie, Chavrie Goat Cheese and Salemville Amish Blue. Or ask an expert for suggestions in the cheese department. Add grapes, almonds and a bit of honey and your cheese board is complete.

And if don’t have the time, don’t worry! We have plenty of time to make a cheese board for you, so come to Roche Bros. to pick one up.

Finishing Sweet

We’re celebrating red, white and blue with an array of Patriotic Desserts in our bakery that are ready for you to bring home! From cakes to tarts to trifles, we have an option for everyone.

Use that sweet final moment to keep things cool with sliced watermelon and popsicles in all colors. On a holiday at this time of year, you’ll need enough frozen delights for kids and grown-ups alike.

Extend the party a little bit longer by circling the grill and roasting marshmallows to make s’mores. We have many choices for graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate throughout the grocery department.

Happy 4th of July from the Roche Bros. family!
