COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bob Evans is calling all foodies to join them in the celebration of National Hot Breakfast Month this February.
"We've always been known for our outstanding breakfasts," says Bob Evans Vice President of Marketing, Tom Marchese. "Though we're very proud to offer more than 275 breakfast, lunch and dinner items including our Fit from the Farm™ menu, Family Meals TO GO and Big Farm Burgers, breakfast is where it all began and we owe a lot of who we are as a company to the quality breakfasts that we have always provided for our guests."
Bob Evans' Fresh-Thinking Chefs™ have spent tireless hours conceptualizing breakfasts that will not only appeal to guests and offer variety, but will live up to the precedent set by their innovative leader and man who started it all.
Bob Evans, founder of the restaurant chain, started it all with a small sausage shop in Gallipolis, Ohio more than 60 years ago using livestock raised on his own farm in Bidwell, Ohio. He dabbled and found success in other offerings such as steaks and pies, but always appreciated the power of coming back to his roots: breakfast sausage. With our Fresh-Thinking Chefs at the helm, the quality of our breakfasts has only increased over the years.
"It's about more than just offering a delicious breakfast," says Bob Evans Executive Development Chef David Eisel. "It's about picking up where Bob Evans left off and continuing to offer delicious, farm-inspired products that he would be proud to serve to his friends and family just as we are to ours."
Though Bob Evans does not claim ownership of the creation of National Hot Breakfast Month, they certainly offer a number of ways to celebrate it. Their famous Rise & Shine Breakfast is available made-to-order in more than 89 different varieties. A new Homestyle Chicken Biscuit Bowl available throughout the winter will satisfy even the hungriest of guests. Those keeping to their nutrition resolutions can look forward to Bob Evans brand new BE Fit™ Breakfast, featuring scrambled, cholesterol-free Bob Evans Egg Lites® and new cranberry multigrain Sidecakes™ and sugar-free syrup. Served with a fresh fruit dish, the meal adds up to only 357 calories and is an excellent source of fiber.
Not only is breakfast served all day long at Bob Evans, but every last breakfast item, from Biscuits and Gravy to Blueberry Crepes, is available for online ordering and carry-out. Guests can feed a hungry family of five in the comforts of their own kitchen, or even a morning meeting of 25 in the board room with breakfast catering options and family-size breakfast items to go.
So this February, guests can spend an entire month celebrating the most important meal of the day by checking out the hundreds of options Bob Evans Restaurants and grocery products have to offer.
