First Watch Introduces New Summer Menu Options
The Daytime Café Promotes Two Shareables Along With Three Entrée Options
June 13, 2018 // Franchising.com // BRADENTON, Florida - First Watch, the popular breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, introduced four fresh, new dishes nationwide as part of its limited-time Summer menu. This seasonal menu, like First Watch’s traditional offerings, keeps things fresh with high-quality ingredients while introducing refreshing, mouth-watering flavors to celebrate Summer. The restaurant is also bringing back its best-selling Million Dollar Bacon.
“Our customers have really responded to our shareable offerings since they help give the entire table a taste of something new, so we’re excited to bring back our Million Dollar Bacon along with a new, light Rainbow Toast option,” said Shane Schaibly, First Watch’s corporate chef and vice president of culinary strategy. “As for our new entrees, one that we’re particularly excited about is our Sambazon Acai Bowl. The superfood is definitely on-trend right now, and when we offered this dish in our test restaurants earlier this year, people gravitated toward it even more than we anticipated.”
First Watch customers can find the following seasonal dishes in addition to the traditional favorites at their local First Watch through Sunday, August 19:
- Million Dollar Bacon (shareable) - Four slices of our signature hardwood smoked bacon baked with brown sugar, black pepper, cayenne and a maple syrup drizzle.
