Newk’s Eatery announced the launch of its Express Market. The innovative new program has rolled out to 49 restaurants since June and will arrive at all 120-plus restaurants by September 2018. Newk’s Express Market provides guests with a take home-friendly experience similar to the freshly prepared section of a grocery store, offering proteins and sides for complete meals or to add to items cooked at home. The new offerings are prepared to serve multiple people and are ready to take home.
“Guests coming in for lunch also want high-quality dinners at home, so we’re making it easy for them pick up the center of the plate for dinner by offering premium flame-grilled proteins ready to take home,” says Stewart Slocum, CMO of Newk’s Eatery. “Guests can add pasta, salad or sides for an easy meal at home. For years, grocery stores have been growing their freshly prepared sections, and now Newk’s is joining the movement by helping our guests solve for dinner while they enjoy their lunch. Whether looking to indulge in a fancy seafood & pasta night in for two, or to feed a family of four a wholesome meal after a busy work day, Newk’s new Express Market helps folks do dinner easier.”
Newk’s Express Market offerings include five ready to take home proteins:
- Flash-Seared Ahi Tuna Slices
- Two-dozen Broiled Shrimp
- One-pound of Sliced Grilled Petite Tenderloin Steak
- Two Char-Grilled Atlantic Salmon Fillets
- One-pound of Sliced All-Natural Chicken
All premium cuts are hand-sliced and flame-grilled in-house. Guests may pair their choice of proteins with an assortment of Newk’s scratch-made dressings and sides available in the new Express Market, or they may pair with their own pasta, pizza, salad, sandwich bread or favorite sides.
Additional Express Market offerings include Newk’s “Q” Take & Bake Pizza, kettle batch soups (Tomato Basil, Loaded Potato, Lobster Crab Bisque and Broccoli Cheese), Pimiento Cheese and Chicken Salad (available in 8, 16 and 32 oz. sizes), an assortment of entrée salads and sandwiches, bottled house-made dressings, as well as four flavors of Newk’s Dozen-Layer Cake slices.
For added convenience, Newk’s also offers online ordering, mobile app/skip the line options, as well as catering for groups of all sizes.
