TGI Fridays Offers Lighter Choices
With the ringing in of the new year, TGI Fridays announced new better for you menu items and beverages. The two new entrée additions, Sizzling Chicken & Spinach and Sizzling Sirloin & Spinach, each under 500 calories, are big on flavor using fresh, hand-cut premium ingredients. These mouth-watering entrées will not leave the guests hungry and, importantly, are offered at a reasonable price. As a complement to these new lighter choice menu options, Fridays is also partnering with Skinnygirl Cocktails created by Bethenny Frankel to launch lower calorie, refreshing adult beverages made with Skinnygirl Bare Naked Vodka.
“We recognize that many of our guests are coming into the New Year with resolutions regarding their weight and wallet. At Fridays, we want to help our guests keep these commitments while still giving them a chance to enjoy the same high quality food, craveable flavors, and the social environment we’re known for,” says Brian Gies, senior vice president, CMO.
“The timing was also right to partner with Bethenny Frankel and Skinnygirl Cocktails, the pioneer of low-calorie spirits,” adds Gies. “We respect Skinnygirl Cocktails as a brand and are excited that our world-class bartenders will be able to pour the finest lower-calorie cocktails using Skinnygirl Bare Naked Vodka.”
Also, during the month of January, the Skinnygirl Vodka martinis will be included in Fridays “Martini Wednesday” promotion.
