October 17, 2013 // Franchising.com // CARLSBAD, Calif. – Daphne’s California Greek introduces the new Cali-Greek Bowl, a hearty and healthful menu item that combines two world flavors in one bowl.
Available for a limited time only at all Daphne’s locations, the Cali-Greek bowl takes its inspiration from Greek cuisine and adds a refreshing, contemporary California flair. The Cali-Greek Bowl begins with a choice of citrus brown rice or rice pilaf, black beans, guacamole, salsa fresca, crisp jalapeno bacon, Greek yogurt chipotle sauce and a choice of grilled chicken, savory gyros or falafel. With grilled chicken, the Cali-Greek Bowl is less than 700 calories.
This summer Daphne’s introduced another menu item that melded the flavors of its Greek heritage and California influence. The new Mini-Pita Trio quickly became a fan favorite. The trio of Greek-style pita sandwiches includes a California inspired pita, a traditional Greek pita, and a third combining the best of both flavors.
"The popular response to the California flair behind Daphne’s menu of traditional Greek -inspired dishes gives us room to innovate within these taste profiles that our customers crave," said Bill Trefethen, CEO of Daphne’s California Greek. "We think our guests are going to enjoy this new Cali-Greek Bowl."
