Studies reported by Statistica show that 45.7 million people visited an Italian restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner within a period of 30 days this past spring. Wow — that’s a lot of fresh-baked breadsticks! If that’s not proof that the world loves a good fast casual Italian meal, we don’t know what is. But if you still need more convincing, here are a few key driving factors that we’ve found catapult our fresh Italian concept to the top of our guests food charts.
Simple, Fresh Ingredients
Ripe juicy tomatoes, freshly grated parmesan,basil and oregano — these are just a handful of the delicious ingredients that go into crafting our menu. Italian food is known for its simple, yet flavorful composition, and Fazoli’s has followed suit with our traditional menu items. The result? Our guests are always coming back for more, so we’d say we nailed it.
Not only are our Italian dishes fresh and made to order, but there’s a ton of variety to choose from. Our pasta and sauces, breadsticks and salads are freshly prepared. Oven-baked dishes and Primo Submarinos are never baked until you order them.
Italian food is often served family-style — think, “big bowl of pasta and meatballs in the center of the table.” And while it’s true that Fazoli’s portions are more personalized, the cuisine and the atmosphere of our restaurants itself lend nicely to family gatherings and conversation. In fact, if you remember anything about the Fazoli’s family from now on, it should be that to us, family and togetherness is everything — and we’ve got delicious Italian fare and communal dining tables to prove it.
Well, there you have it! Just a few of the reasons why family and friends put Fazoli’s at the top of their favorites list when it comes to dining out. Actually, our guests aren’t the only ones enjoying our fast, fresh Italian concept. Our franchisees have been enjoying record sales with over two years of same store sales growth, a flexible footprint and neverending business support from our corporate leadership team, to name a few.
