“Red, White and Blue at FATZ” Fun for Kids and the Entire Family



FATZ is excited to announce the next phase of its kids meal program, “Red, White and Blue at FATZ.” Just in time for election season, FATZ is counting the votes and gathering the stats for kid-friendly activities books to gear up for the campaign trail.

Featuring several games that emphasize the stars and stripes, as well as an “If I Were President” coloring contest, the “Red, White and Blue at FATZ” activity book has something for all children under 10. Starting Aug. 13, 2012, until Dec. 10, 2012, FATZ encourages kids to submit a patriotic drawing at participating FATZ restaurants. One Grand Prize winner will be awarded a family trip to Colonial Williamsburg, while 50 first place winners will each receive an American flag. The winner will be chosen based on the creativity and originality of their drawing.

The FATZ kids menu, with items starting at $1.99, provides a variety of value conscious and healthy options, from Grilled Chicken Sandwiches and Steamed Seasonal Veggies to delicious Grilled Salmon and Peaches in Strawberry Jell-O.

“The evolution of our kids program is a key component in our continued effort to resonate with families,” said Jim Balis, CEO of Cafe Enterprises, Inc. “Health, value and fun are brought together to appeal not just to discerning parents, but also to the children.”

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 and schools to further support the long-standing Gold Star Program, which provides deserving children rewards for scholastic achievements in the classroom.

FATZ started with humble beginnings in 1988 in Spartanburg, S.C., and spread from one peach shed to a sensation across the Southeast with its varied, reasonably priced menu, ample portions of quality food and upbeat service in a comfortable atmosphere. Today, FATZ still believes in the same ideals that originated in that fruit stand 24 years ago and strives to deliver warm, friendly service with housemade, quality ingredients to create a “home away from home” for every guest that walks through the door.
