Fazoli’s Goes Old School With Four New Italian Dishes


Fazoli's Goes Old School With Four New Italian DishesPhotos of mullet haircuts, parachute pants, and any other “old school” behavior can be traded in for free spaghetti as part of a promotion developed by Fazoli’s.  Bring your old school photo to any participating Fazoli’s, order one of the new Old School entrees, and receive a coupon for free spaghetti on your next visit.  Every generation is encouraged to participate, from Baby Boomers to Millennials, because fashion faux pas and technical lapses are timeless.  

Fazoli’s Old School Promotion includes more than just one free plate of spaghetti.  You have a chance to win free spaghetti for a year. The only catch is you have to be willing to share your old school ways with the world, posting photos on facebook.com/fazolis.  The “best of the worst” pictures will be awarded by Facebook fans each week.  Photos with the most fan Likes by Friday at 4p.m. EDT will win free spaghetti for a year.  This Facebook contest ends April 30, 2011.

Old School can be a good thing.  Case in point: Fazoli’s four new Old School Italian dishes.  They include Chicken Bianco, Italian Meatza, Ravioli Florentine, and Sausage Cannelloni.  All are made with bold ingredients that are baked to perfection.  The four dishes are available until the end of May at participating locations for just $4.99 in most locations.

Cathy Hull, chief marketing officer for Fazoli’s, anticipates a high level of participation in the Old School Promotion.  “We all have photos from our past that we would rather forget,” said Hull.  “And based on the kinds of internet postings of awkward photos, people love to share these bad moments of time captured on film — yes film — not digital.”    

An American family favorite for more than 20 years, Fazoli’s is a leading, next generation QSR franchise opportunity.  With an all new premium menu featuring freshly prepared Italian entrees, Submarinos sandwiches and salads, a contemporary new restaurant design and fresh leadership, Fazoli’s is well positioned for growth.
