LEXINGTON, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fazoli's (@Fazolis), the premium Italian quick-service restaurant ranked #2 overall among large national fast-food chains in the prestigious Zagat Survey, expands its menu this summer with Stuffed Pasta Selects, a collection of new flavorful dishes incorporating sacchetti pasta packed with ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan and Romano cheeses. The trio of Stuffed Pasta Selects is available in participating locations until September 28 for only $6.99.
Stuffed Pasta Fresco incorporates two guest favorites: sun-dried tomatoes and sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce. Freshly prepared sacchetti pasta pouches are drenched with sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce and a drizzle of basil pesto before being topped with chicken, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes and a cheese-spice blend.
Stuffed Pasta Supremo combines oven-baked sacchetti with a sun-dried tomato Alfredo sauce, caramelized Italian sausage, mushrooms, shredded mozzarella and provolone cheeses, and julienned salami.
Stuffed Pasta Robusto is oven-baked sacchetti in a creamy marinara sauce with diced chicken, bacon pieces, shredded mozzarella and provolone cheeses and a cheese-spice blend.
"Premium sacchetti pasta and complex flavors are more commonly found in high-end restaurants," said Carl Howard, Fazoli's president and CEO. "At Fazoli's, we are continuing to elevate the guest food experience by providing $15 dishes for under $7."
Howard added that guests are responding very favorably to Fazoli’s focus on menu innovation and quality, citing the success of this year’s limited-time offer of Cheesecake with Nutella. Due to its popularity, the offer has been extended until September 28 at participating locations. The first-of-its-kind dessert features a chocolate graham-cracker crust with Nutella hazelnut spread.
An American family favorite for more than 20 years, Fazoli’s features a premium menu of freshly prepared Italian entrees, Submarinos sandwiches and salads, a new service style featuring table service and a contemporary new restaurant design. Already America’s largest Italian quick-service chain with approximately 220 company and franchised restaurants, Fazoli’s is expanding throughout the country. Founded in Lexington, Ky., in 1988, Fazoli’s was acquired by Sun Capital Partners in 2006.
