CHICAGO -- ConAgra Brands Inc. will acquire Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin, which produces frozen flatbread sandwiches.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close in early 2018.

Sandwich Bros. of Wisconsin was founded in Milwaukee, WI, in 1979 by John and George Kashou. In 2012, the brothers introduced their signature line of frozen flatbread pocket sandwiches. These are filled with premium-quality proteins including 100% Angus beef, chicken raised without antibiotics, all-natural sausage and real Wisconsin cheese. The company had approximately $60 million in net sales for the 12 months ending in November.

The sandwiches are sold nationwide to grocery stores, club, convenience and mass merchandisers, in addition to foodservice, military and private-label customers.
