The Gourmet Burger Authority™ Launches New Kid’s Menu and New Fun, Interactive Elements
Greenwood Village, CO (RestaurantNews.com) Typical kid’s menus are for the birds! On June 15, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin), the go-to restaurant for families, will roll out a revamped kid’s menu that offers new entrees and a refresh of current favorites. New in-restaurant elements, which will appear in restaurants through 2016, range from chalkboards to LEGO sculptures, decorated straws and placemats infused with Red Robin’s whimsical spirit to keep young diners entertained throughout the meal.
“Kids are very important guests. Our new kid’s experience offers a variety of craveable menu options in a fun environment that is welcoming to guests of all ages,” said Denny Marie Post, Red Robin’s Executive Vice President and Chief Concept Officer. “The new kids’ experiences were designed to spark conversation and creativity at the table, while offering a delicious dinner that delights all the senses.”
The new kid’s dining experience at Red Robin begins when guests walk through the door. Kids will be able choose a balloon from the balloon tree and showcase their creativity on a chalkboard wall. Once seated, creative artwork and iconic imagery displayed on the walls – and even ceiling – spark intrigue and conversation among guests. Brightly colored tri-fold menus, with quirky changes to some of America’s most famous landmarks and icons, showcase menu offerings. Kid’s entrees will be served on one of six new plates featuring whimsical imagery. Mustache straws and activity sheets will offer additional entertainment. In a growing number of locations, kids can even challenge family members to classic games like tic-tac-toe or hang man on one of the eight versions of handheld chalkboard games from the “Craving Some Fun” wall.
Red Robin’s craveable and wholesome menu features 10 delicious items, including three new entrees and seven current favorites, all served with a choice of Red Robin’s signature bottomless beverages and bottomless sides. Hungrier kids can choose larger portions to satisfy their growing appetite.
