Feb 7 Is National Fettuccine Alfredo Day

Fazoli's Offers Entree for Just $1 to Celebrate

LEXINGTON, Ky., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Italian restaurateur Alfredo di Lelio created Fettuccine Alfredo in 1914 to help his wife regain her appetite after the birth of their first son.  Today, it's one of the most popular pasta dishes in America, and the invention of the dish is commemorated on February 7 with National Fettuccine Alfredo Day.  Fazoli's, America's largest fast casual Italian restaurant chain, is celebrating the day by offering Fettuccine Alfredo for just $1.  To take advantage of the offer, go to www.facebook.com/fazolis for a coupon.  The special Fettuccine Alfredo offer is available at all participating Fazoli's restaurants across the country on Thursday, February 7.

Fettuccine Alfredo is popular with adults, as well as kids.  Just check out video footage of kids enjoying Fettuccine Alfredo at http://tinyurl.com/Fetday .

Cathy Hull, Fazoli's Chief Marketing Officer, is excited to offer guests such an appetizing offer.  "Fettuccine Alfredo is one of our most popular dishes," said Hull.  "We expect our restaurants to be very busy on February 7.  But we think it's a great way to honor restaurateur Alfredo di Lelio and give back to our customers."

Fettuccine Alfredo supposedly became popular in the United States when Hollywood stars Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks dined at Di Lelio's restaurant while on their honeymoon.  They spread the word when they returned to America. 

An American family favorite for more than 20 years, Fazoli's ranked #2 overall among large national fast-food chains in the prestigious Zagat Survey.  With a premium menu of freshly prepared Italian entrees, oven-baked sandwiches and salads, a new service style featuring table service and a contemporary new restaurant design, Fazoli's is expanding throughout the country. Founded in Lexington, Ky. in 1988, Fazoli's was acquired by Sun Capital Partners in 2006.
