Fazoli’s will debut Impossible meat sauce in a test at all five restaurants in its hometown—Lexington, Kentucky.
Starting December 16, Fazoli’s will incorporate Impossible meat—made from Impossible Burger, a plant-based meat made from potatoes and soy—into two classic Italian menu items. For a limited time, guests can enjoy these delectable dishes—along with Fazoli’s famous unlimited breadsticks:
Director of Culinary Innovation Rick Petralia said Fazoli’s worked on developing a plant-based meat that tastes great to everyone, including meat lovers. The always innovative and evolving Italian chain found that the Impossible meat sauce both responds to its guests’ ever-changing lifestyle needs and stays true to delivering on the craveable flavors the brand is known for.
“As the first Italian brand to capitalize on plant-based Impossible® meat sauce, we knew we needed a product that didn’t just taste good for being a plant-based product,” Petralia says. “We wanted a product that would taste indistinguishable from beef and be delicious to everyone who tried it. You can’t taste the difference between our meat sauce and the Impossible meat sauce. As we continue to innovate our menu to match the changes in our guests’ lifestyles, we’ve created a product that everyone will love. Now, we can reach a wider audience because we have a delectable menu full of items that will satisfy everyone who walks through our doors.”
