FATZ Announces Partnership With U.S. Space & Rocket Center/Space Camp as Part of New Kids Meal Program



FATZintroduces the next phase of its kids meal program, through a partnership with U.S. Space and Rocket Center/Space Camp, also known as Earth’s largest space museum, showcasing rockets, achievements and artifacts of the U.S. space program. The “Out of this World Fun” activity book is a way to bring families together at the dinner table with fun and learning.

Featuring multiple games that focus on planets, constellations, aviation and more, the “Out of This World Fun” activity book has something for all children under 12. The excitement continues with an opportunity for kids to enter to win their very own flight suit or a collector’s book about the Apollo 11 Mission. FATZ has been partnering with Just 4 Fun Kids & Family Marketing, where they are handling the sweepstakes contests for the kids program and design implementation of the activity book. The menu provides a variety of healthy options from Grilled Chicken Sandwiches and Steamed Seasonal Veggies to delicious Grilled Salmon and Sugar Free Chocolate Mousse.

“FATZ is excited to partner with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center/Space Camp and provide families quality, healthy food and time to reconnect while still learning with the ‘Out of This World Fun’ activity book,” said Stephen Loftis, V.P. of Marketing for Café Enterprises. “Bringing education to the dinner table gives parents a reason to feel good about taking their family out to eat.”

The FATZ Kids Program is a concerted effort not only for the restaurants, but also through social media and the FATZ’s kids page at FATZ.com/kids.

Additionally, FATZ makes it a priority to engage with local communities to further support the long-standing Gold Star Program, which provides deserving children rewards for scholastic achievements in the classroom.
