TORONTO, Sept. 25, 2012 /CNW/ - Canada's largest casual dining chain,
Boston Pizza International Inc., is pleased to introduce a renewed menu
featuring 26 mouth-watering new dishes. The new menu, which debuted
last week at all of its 340 locations, caters to guests' palates with a
focus on sophisticated flavours and even more variety in each category.
From pizza and pasta to wings and burgers, Boston Pizza's menu offers
something for everyone.
"Whether guests are enjoying a sporting event or celebrating a family
birthday, we want Boston Pizza to be a place where friends and families
can gather and enjoy quality time together," says Director of Culinary
and Executive Chef Michael Gray. "We spent nearly eight months creating
and perfecting the new menu items to make sure they would please our
guests and leave them feeling happy."
Boston Pizza locations from coast-to-coast will now feature new
lip-smacking items like Pulled Pork Pizza, The Meatball Grinder
Sandwich and Chipotle Chicken Club. Also reflected in the new menu is
an offering of 'share worthy' items such as the Calamari appetizer,
Pizza Spring Rolls, S'mores Pizza and The Panookie Cookie Dessert,
which allow guests to enjoy Boston Pizza's extensive menu together.
"The new menu builds on Boston Pizza's reputation for satisfying
Canadian cravings with high quality, sophisticated flavours and
variety," says Gray. "We are constantly striving to exceed our guests'
expectations and this new menu speaks to our success as Canada's
largest casual dining chain."
Boston Pizza is also pleased to announce a new partnership with
Starbucks. Participating restaurants in BC, Northern Alberta, Quebec,
and Atlantic Canada will feature Starbucks® Blonde Roast, a popular new light roast coffee, in addition to
decaffeinated medium roast coffee and Tazo® premium teas with the rest of the country coming on board in 2013.
In October, Boston Pizza will roll-out a new family-focused kids program
designed to spark family interaction at the table and provide children
with a more meaningful experience at its restaurants. In addition, the
popular Kids Cards fundraiser kicks-off on October 1, which raises
money for the Boston Pizza Foundation. Guests can purchase a Kids Card
