Fourth Variety of Flatbread Unveiled at Mr. Goodcents

Mr. Goodcents Subs & Pastas added a Meatball Parmesan option to its quickly expanding line of flatbread pizzas. The rectangular, single-serving portion pizza is the fourth variety now available for dine-in, carryout, or delivery at Mr. Goodcents locations throughout the Midwest. Other options—Pepperoni, Chicken Alfredo, and Cheese—were first introduced in March.

Prepared in less than two minutes and priced under $5, the new Meatball Parmesan flatbread pizza is served on freshly baked flatbread dough and prepared with marinara, provolone cheese, and meatballs and then topped with parmesan cheese.

“It can be a challenge for families to find meals where everyone can order their favorite without breaking the bank,” says Dave Goebel, recently named CEO of Mr. Goodcents Subs & Pastas. “Our menus are designed to allow families to choose from a wide range of delicious and satisfying meal options without having to dig deep into their pockets.”

In expanding its pizza line, Mr. Goodcents Subs & Pastas is tapping into one of America’s favorite foods. According to a recent Technomic study, 93 percent of Americans eat pizza at least once a month, and the average consumer enjoys pizza almost three times a month.

“Our guests’ response to our new flatbread pizza has exceeded our expectations,” Goebel says. “That’s why we are so excited to offer new specialty options like the Meatball Parmesan.” Goebel also noted that the addition of flatbread pizzas to the restaurant’s growing delivery and catering options further differentiates Mr. Goodcents from its competitors.
