LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It's time to bring out your workout videos and DVDs to keep your New Year's resolution of getting into shape.  And while you have them out, bring those videos to a participating Fazoli's restaurant on Monday, January 9 for a free 500 Calories or Less entree at lunch between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.  It doesn't matter whether it's Richard Simmons or Jane Fonda, Jazzercise or Pilates, if you work out to it, you can try one of Fazoli's new lower calorie pastas dishes.   

Don't worry if you miss the January 9 offer.  For the remainder of the month of January you can save $1 on every $5 purchase towards 500 Calories or Less entrees by bringing in your favorite workout video or DVD to a participating Fazoli's restaurant.  The Italian restaurant offers a number of 400 and 500 Calories or Less entrees.  They include Chicken Mushroom Alfredo Bake, Three Cheese Baked Ravioli, Chicken Penne & Peppers, and Cherry Almond Chicken Chopped Salad.  Other new items at participating locations include Tuscan Chicken Flatbread Pizza and Chicken Broccoli Florentine Flatbread Pizza.

Fazoli's is so committed to fitness and freshness this year, that even its mascot Tony the Tomato is getting into the act.  He is featured in a fitness video of his own, showing off exercise moves that only a tomato could pull off.  You can catch him on facebook.com/fazolis.

Cathy Hull, Fazoli's Chief Marketing Officer, believes the timing is perfect on introducing these new menu items.  "So many of us start the new year committed to getting in shape," said Hull.  "Our new low calorie entrees are packed with all the flavor and freshness of our other signature dishes, but we've removed the guilt.  They're perfect for lunch or dinner, with the family, or with a co-worker.  And you will leave Fazoli's satisfied, which should help you keep your resolution — that's the hardest part."

An American family favorite for more than 20 years, Fazoli's is a leading, next generation QSR.  With an all new premium menu featuring freshly prepared Italian entrees, Submarinos® sandwiches and salads, and a new look, Fazoli's is expanding throughout the United States.
