For those not in the US, and missing out like us, cover your ears now. Fazoli's, America's largest quick-serve Italian chain, will celebrate National Lasagna Day this Wednesday, July 29 by offering a complimentary Twice-Baked Lasagna with the purchase of any drink at participating locations.
Lasagna lovers should head to their local Fazoli's, where the restaurant will commemorate the day with "I celebrated National Lasagna Day" stickers for customers who indulge in the classic pasta dish.
"Lasagna is a favorite Italian dish among millions of Americans," said Jon Quinn, Vice President of Marketing at Fazoli's. "This is comfort food at its heart and soul and families can come celebrate with us and savour their favourite meal. Our Twice-Baked Lasagna pairs really well with our signature all you can eat breadsticks, making National Lasagna Day an event more than just another meal."
To participate in National Lasagna Day and claim the offer, lasagna lovers and Fazoli's Fans will need to visit Fazoli's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Fazolis, to download the coupon to redeem at their local restaurant.
Much like lasagna itself, Fazoli's added in an extra layer to celebrate this special day. A social media contest will spice things up as Fazoli's Fans are encouraged to upload a picture with their celebratory sticker and the hashtag #FazolisLasagna on Instagram or Twitter.
This is Fazoli's fourth consecutive year celebrating National Lasagna Day with a free, savory meal. It began with the restaurant donating nine tons of lasagna to Feed the Children, a global relief organisation, and offering all guests free lasagna.
