Fazoli’s rolls out refrigerated meals
LEXINGTON, KY. — Fazoli’s, an Italian quick-service chain, is launching a line of refrigerated entrees and side dishes in retail markets.
Four entrees include creamy penne Alfredo with roasted chicken and broccoli; five-cheese lasagna with meat sauce; shrimp with bowtie pasta in cream sauce; and penne marinara with meatballs and Italian sausage. Side dishes include ravioli in Asiago cream sauce and cheese tortellini with cream sauce.
“This strategy will drive top-line revenue and keep consumers thinking about Fazoli’s even when they are not eating out,” said Carl T. Howard, president and chief executive officer of Fazoli’s. “Having dramatically improved the variety and quality of our restaurant food puts us in a great position to extend the Fazoli’s brand to the retail market.”
The products are now available in select supermarkets for a suggested retail price of $6.99 per entree and $4.49 per side dish.
