LEXINGTON, Ky., March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Seniors, those aged 62 and over, are not only the fastest growing segment of our population, they remain the difference makers – leading companies, fundraisers, and policy changes.  The new generation of seniors include Richard Gere, Jane Seymour and Bruce Springsteen.  But there are also lesser known seniors in every community who are standouts, and you have a chance to nominate them as part of Fazoli's Club 62 Awards.

Starting March 3, post your senior candidate – a friend, parent, grandparent, neighbor, co-worker – on a special tab on Fazoli's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/fazolis) describing why he or she is a standout senior.  Fazoli's will select one senior in each participating market to be spotlighted in the media.  Plus, the winning senior in each market will receive Free Spaghetti for a Year.  Deadline for entries is March 14, 2014 and winners will be announced on or around March 17, 2014.

Fazoli's developed the Club 62 Awards to help launch its Club 62 Card Program.  With a Club 62 Card, seniors aged 62 or over pay just $4 on Wednesdays.  The offer is for any Senior Deal Menu item.   In addition, small drinks on any day of the week are just $1. Club 62 cards are available at participating Fazoli's locations.

Jon Quinn, Fazoli's Vice President of Marketing, believes its time that seniors receive recognition for their many contributions.  "Seniors today are more active and more involved in the community than ever before," said Quinn.  "They also believe in the value of a sit-down meal, the kind you still eat with a fork, which is what we offer.  So it's time we stand-up for them with an award."

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.
