Fazoli’s Kicks off Endless Pasta Fest With a Contest
Last month, Fazoli’s hosted an all-you-can-eat spaghetti eating contest — and as if that didn’t sound amazing enough, the end result helped provide food for charity!
The only thing Fazoli’s loves more than feeding families is helping to feed those families that are less fortunate. That’s why, when the opportunity to link up with Feed The Children in an all-you-can-eat spaghetti eating contest arose, the only answer we could muster was a resounding “yes!”
Here’s How it Went Down
On Saturday, April 22, folks in select markets — Lexington, Kentucky; Indianapolis, Indiana; Dayton, Ohio; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Paducah, Kentucky — gathered at their local Fazoli’s to take part in the festivities for a good cause. The goal? To compete against other contestants to see who could eat the most spaghetti and marinara sauce within eight minutes. Aside from bragging rights, the grand prize winner from each location received a $250 Visa gift card, free spaghetti at Fazoli’s for one year, and a Fazoli’s t-shirt.
At the conclusion of the contest, Fazoli’s donated 1,000 pounds of dried pasta to Feed the Children, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger. All-you-can-eat authentic Italian cuisine, plus free food for those in need? We’d call that a win-win no matter what!
Our Endless Pasta Fest
Not only was this event a huge success in feeding hungry contestants and helping local families, but it also served as the perfect kickoff to our Endless Pasta Fest promotion. Beginning on April 22, guests who visit a Fazoli’s location can enjoy unlimited refills on all pasta dishes for only $6.99.
“We know our guests love Fazoli’s spaghetti and signature marinara sauce, so we thought a pasta eating contest would be a fun way to celebrate our Endless Pasta Fest promotion,” said Chief Marketing Officer Donna Josephson.
At Fazoli’s, we’re committed to offering delicious Italian food made with the highest quality ingredients, while still remaining an affordable option for families everywhere. We know how important it is to spend family time sitting around the dinner table, which is why we make serving a hot meal simple. Just come in, place your order, and wait for your food to arrive!
