Fazoli’s announced that it will give away free kids’ meals on Saturdays and Sundays through August. At participating restaurants, children 12 and under will get a free kid’s meal when an adult entree is purchased.

The August kids-eat-free program celebrates Fazoli’s recent recognition by Parents magazine, which ranked Fazoli’s fourth on its list of 10 best fast-casual family restaurants.

“We have always worked hard to make Fazoli’s a special place for families,” says Stacy Hettich, Fazoli’s brand director. “We are very proud that Parents recognized Fazoli’s with this honor, and it makes us want to work even harder to serve families, especially during these difficult economic times.”

Fazoli’s launched its kids-eat-free weekends in August because that’s when many families do their back-to-school shopping.

“We understand that families need a financial break, as well as a break from the rush of back-to-school shopping and other late summer activities,” Hettich says. “The August kids-eat-free program is Fazoli’s way of saying ‘thanks’ to families for their patronage.”
