Newk’s Eatery to Host Souper Bowl Contest

Guests will decide which of two competing soups will earn a place on the menu

In celebration of National Soup Month and one of the most anticipated sporting events of the year, Super Bowl XLVIII, Newk’s Eatery is hosting a Souper Bowl contest of its own. Newk’s Souper Bowl is a competition between two soups vying to win a spot on the soup schedule of nearly 70 Newk’s restaurants.

From Monday, Jan. 20 through Friday, Jan. 24, 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., guests at participating Newk’s fresh casual restaurants have the opportunity to taste and score a point for their favorite new scratch-made soup by casting their vote. The soups competing for the winning score are Chicken Enchilada and Crawfish & Pepperjack.

Crawfish & Pepperjack is made from tender crawfish tails simmered in a velvety Pepperjack cheese soup with Cajun seasoning, green bell peppers, onions and a splash of Tabasco sauce. It will be a tough choice for guests to make when deciding which soup deserves to be declared Souper Bowl Champion.

The fresh casual, upscale Newk’s Eatery currently offers 11 rotating soups on its culinary-inspired menu, which consists of fresh-tossed salads, oven-baked sandwiches, California-style pizzas, made-from-scratch soups and homemade cakes. Four soups are featured daily and rotate as the seasons change, allowing Newk’s to continually update its soup options. The winning Souper Bowl flavor will be added to Newk’s Spring/Summer soup menu.

Newk’s offers a separate catering menu and original products that keep customers coming back. Newk’s Roundtable Club members get special offers when they sign-up to be a roundtable member and each year on their birthday. The club is named after the table featured in the center of every location that offers various complimentary spices, toppings and add-ons, allowing diners to customize their menu items. Another original Newk’s concept is Grab-n-Go, which gives busy guests the option to drop in and quickly pick out a favorite menu item from the select offerings in the open, stand-up refrigerator case at the front of the restaurant.
