JACKSON, Miss., Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Newk's Eatery, recently named "America's Favorite Fast-Casual Chain" by Restaurant Business Magazine, is celebrating 15 years of carefully crafted meals from treasured Newcomb family recipes with promotions throughout the month of February in all 122 locations.
"Growing up, I was a foodie in the making, sharing my mom's passion for home-cooked meals, and watching my parents and their friends at work in the kitchen," said Newk's Founder & CEO, Chris "Newk" Newcomb. "My father and I founded McAlister's Deli in 1989 and learned a lot during those years. We sold the company and then launched Newk's in 2004. Our vision for Newk's was to provide scratch-made recipes in a fast-casual environment, with one major differentiator – an open kitchen where our guests can see all the work that goes into the food and feel like they are part of the family."
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the month, guests can take advantage of a special limited time 15th Anniversary offer--two Newcomb family recipe entrées for only $15--to help Newk's celebrate its 15th anniversary. Additionally, a limited time collectable 32-ounce cup will be available in store for purchase celebrating 15 years of Newcomb Family Recipes.
Newcomb family recipe entrée options include the following menu items, prepared to-order:
- Newk's Favorite Salad
- Southern Salad
- Newk's "Q" Sandwich
- Pimiento Cheese Sandwich
- Chicken Salad Sandwich
- Newk's "Q" Pizza
- The Debra Pizza
- Five Cheese Mac
- Six Cheese Mac
"These time-tested family recipes are like the dishes we had on the table during my childhood," said Newcomb. "From the beginning, Newk's has been committed to creating extraordinary meals and experiences for our guests. We're grateful to have reached this milestone with the support of our Newk's franchisees, managers, hourly partners and communities. As we look ahead to the next 15 years, we're excited to continue innovating in the fast-casual space, as we maintain our priority on wholesome craveable food, hospitality and making a difference in our communities."
