Fazoli's, the Italian quick-service restaurant, launched its first partnership with Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. Participating Fazoli's locations will serve Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake, a New York–style cheesecake swirled with pumpkin and topped with Ghirardelli Caramel Sauce for $1.99. The limited-time promotion runs through January 5, 2014.
"Incorporating Ghirardelli Caramel Sauce with Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake is the next step in Fazoli's food evolution," says Carl Howard, Fazoli's president and CEO. "We've enhanced the flavor of Fazoli's entrées and improved presentation with real plates and silverware in a contemporary setting. Now, we're introducing the premier Ghirardelli brand to our desserts."
"Ghirardelli Chocolate Company looks forward to building a strong partnership with Fazoli's," says Chris Eklem, vice president of foodservice. "Working together, we can continue to grow our mutual sales with strong concepts and innovation."
