American Cities with Italian Names -- Fazoli's Offers Free Lemon Ice When You Name a Town
LEXINGTON, Ky., July 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rome is not only the capital of Italy, it's the largest city in Floyd County Georgia, a place in New York where a major Revolutionary War battle took place, and a small town in South Carolina near Myrtle Beach. In fact, Rome is the name of more than 8 cities located throughout the United States. And there are numerous other places in America named after Italian cities and towns. Name just one of them and you will receive a free Italian Lemon Ice from Fazoli's in flavors of the old country.
From July 18 through July 22, stop by any participating Fazoli's restaurant and provide the name of an American city with an Italian name, and you will receive a free Italian Lemon Ice. This includes two new flavors, Pomegranate Passion Fruit and Orange Italian Cream. The Lemon Ice giveaway is all part of Fazoli's Tour of Taste promotion, where the flavors of Rome, Tuscany, Campania, Naples and Sicily are being featured through five new entrees. There is also a chance to win a trip for two to Italy and other great prizes included in Fazoli's Tour of Taste Sweepstakes, which can be entered by visiting participating restaurant locations. Sweepstakes ends July 31, 2011.
Cathy Hull, chief marketing officer for Fazoli's, believes most people can identify at least one American city with an Italian name. "Just off the top of my head Florence, Naples and Venice come to mind, but there are so many more cities in the United States with Italian names," said Hull. "What's interesting is that each region of Italy brought different flavors to America as well. We are highlighting these flavors with our Tour of Taste entrees, and you don't have to live in Rome to enjoy them."
An American family favorite for more than 20 years, Fazoli's is a leading QSR with an all new menu featuring freshly prepared Italian entrees, Submarinos® sandwiches and salads and a contemporary new restaurant design. Founded in Lexington, Ky. in 1989, Sun Capital Partners acquired Fazoli's in 2006.
