Bring a Fork and a Friend to Fazoli's for a Free Lighter Options Entree

LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Studies show that people who have a friend join them on their weight loss journey tend to have more success.  Fazoli's has come up with a way to foster this "friend" support system.  Starting today, bring a fork and a friend to any participating Fazoli's and you will get a free Lighter Options entree when you purchase any Lighter Options entree (of equal or lesser value).  You can present a real fork, or simply a photo of one; then dig in with an actual fork to enjoy a break from fried foods. If you need help deciding which friend to take, head over to www.facebook.com/fazolis for a fun "invite" to share via Facebook. It's a great way to begin your routine of eating right in 2013.  Offer ends January 31, 2013.

And don't worry about sacrificing taste to reduce calories.  Fazoli's now has 12 items under 540 calories, all of which are big on flavor.  They include Chicken Bruschetta Pasta, Three Cheese Baked Ravioli, Baked Penne & Peppers, and Chicken Margherita and Tuscan Chicken Flatbread Pizzas.  In addition, Fazoli's has a full lineup of freshly prepared chopped salads and soups.

Cathy Hull, Fazoli's Chief Marketing Officer, believes the timing is perfect for the Bring a Fork & a Friend promotion.  "So many of us start the new year committed to getting in shape," said Hull.  "Our Lighter Options menu choices are packed with all the flavor and freshness of our other signature dishes, though allow our guests to both portion and calorie control.  They're perfect for lunch or dinner, with a family member, co-worker, or friend.  And you will leave Fazoli's satisfied, which should help you keep your resolution."

An American family favorite for more than 20 years, Fazoli's ranked #2 overall among large national fast-food chains in the prestigious Zagat Survey.  With a premium menu of freshly prepared Italian entrees, oven-baked sandwiches and salads, a new service style featuring table service and a contemporary new restaurant design, Fazoli's is expanding throughout the country. Founded in Lexington, Ky. in 1988, Fazoli's was acquired by Sun Capital Partners in 2006.
