Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, American Lamb Board Join Forces

    Industry News | August 7, 2020

    Taziki’s Mediterranean Café and the American Lamb Board are working together to promote accessible options that incorporate lamb into the diet of American families. This new partnership includes visual storytelling, in-restaurant promotions, recipe ideas as well as a social media campaign @fanoflamb to increase awareness about this delicious and flavorful, high-quality meat.

    “One of Taziki's top priorities has always been providing high-quality food to all guests,” says Dan Simpson, CEO of Taziki’s Mediterranean Café. “Our focus begins far before the food arrives at the stores; when choosing the farmers behind our food, Taziki’s searches for the best partners with great practices.”

    One of Taziki’s proud partners is Dane Farms, a family owned business that began operating in the 1800s. Dane Farm is one of Taziki’s lamb purveyors, providing high-quality American Lamb that has grown in popularity at Taziki’s since the restaurant’s inception over 21 years ago. Taziki’s rejects the idea of processed meat on a spit and has built a 20+ year demand around the fresh, real lamb that their customers have become accustomed to on their menu.

    The Char-Grilled Lamb is known as one of the best protein options Taziki’s has available at their restaurants across 17 states.

    “This incredible protein has been something that our guests have enjoyed since the inception of our brand,” adds Simpson. “Our lamb is seasoned with Greek Seasoning and char-grilled fresh to-order to provide you the adventure of authentic Mediterranean flavors.”

    Taziki’s Lamb has quickly become a guest go-to protein for an elevated at-home dinner or an adventurous lunch option on the go, so the growing relationship with American Lamb is a natural one.

    Here are some of the curated lamb dishes that can be ordered when visiting Taziki’s:

    Lamb Family Feast features char-grilled lamb with fresh salad, rice or potatoes, dip and pita. Feeds families of four, six, or eight for lunch or dinner.

    Lamb Feast Greek Salad comes with your choice of rice or potatoes.

    Grilled Lamb Gyro includes Taziki’s Sauce, tomatoes, mixed lettuce, and grilled onions. Served with chips and a healthy side.

    Lamb Mediterranean Salad mixes lettuces with garbanzo beans, roasted red peppers, red onions, diced tomatoes, roasted pecans and feta served with Taziki’s homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

    Greek Salad Gyro features char-grilled lamb, tomatoes, cucumbers, roasted red peppers, red onions, mixed lettuce, feta and Greek dressing.

    “We thank Taziki’s for their commitment to using American Lamb. Menuing of local lamb supports the nation’s shepherds and their families,” says Megan Wortman, executive director of the Denver-based American Lamb Board. “American Lamb is known for its distinctive yet mild flavor and we love Taziki’s use of fresh char-grilled leg of lamb in their gyros, salads and Family Feast.”
