Foodservice Health Trends—Part 2 of 3

fazolisLike the recent Corner Bakery Cafe blog we posted, Fazoli’s is starting the year off by offering calorie-conscious choices to the menu with its new Mini Bakes—four smaller-portioned meals, each with 400 calories or less. Fazoli’s is introducing this line to satisfy the healthy demands of its customers. But, while these meals are only $3.99, in a recent article, Cathy Hull, chief marketing officer for Fazoli’s, is pushing add-ons by saying, “Mini Bakes are satisfying and filling [but you can] add a Fazoli’s side salad with fat-free ranch dressing and a sugar-free drink, and you have a complete, freshly made meal that is less than 500 calories.” The important thing to take from Fazoli’s health-conscious efforts is to never forget about the powers of the upgrade.
