Fazoli’s Has Done What Many Thought Impossible - Made Mac & Cheese Even Better
America’s largest elevated QSR Italian chain upgrades classic comfort food with craveable ingredients and toppings, launching in participating locations Oct. 1
October 01, 2018 // Franchising.com // LEXINGTON - Fazoli’s, the masterminds behind the creation of the next best thing since breadsticks - Breadstick Sliders - has done it again.
Fazoli’s has once again turned something craveable into something even better and is raising the mac & cheese standard with its new line of indulgent baked pasta dishes, which will debut alongside a baked apple crostata on Oct. 1.
These three new dishes are a delectable upgrade to familiar mac & cheese and the baked pasta dishes that fans love at Fazoli’s. The new cheesy dishes include:
- Panko-Crusted Mac & Cheese ($4.99) - Cavatappi noodles with creamy cheddar cheese sauce, topped with Parmesan panko breadcrumbs, then baked with even more cheddar and mozzarella cheese. A cheese-lover’s dream come true.
- Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese ($6.99) - Cavatappi noodles with creamy cheddar cheese sauce, baked with cheddar and mozzarella cheeses, then topped with crispy chicken tossed in Buffalo sauce and finished with a Parmesan Peppercorn ranch drizzle.
- Braised Beef Mac & Cheese ($7.99) - Cavatappi noodles with creamy cheddar cheese sauce, topped with tender, slow-roasted braised beef, baked with cheddar and mozzarella cheeses.
Fazoli’s is also introducing a new dessert - Baked Apple Crostata ($3.99) - a decadent apple croustade crumble baked and topped with vanilla bean gelato and a salted caramel drizzle. The perfect sweet ending to a delicious savory mac & cheese dish.
“We wanted to offer our fans a new take on a classic comfort food,” said Culinary Manager Rick Petralia. “Our baked pasta dishes are already a favorite with our guests, but we’ve added our own Fazoli’s twist and the outcome is out-of-this-world-tasty; we know our guests are going to go crazy for them.”
