Sweet Peppers Deli Franchise Joins Healthy Dining to Offer Guests Healthier Menu Options
March 31, 2010
Sweet Peppers Deli and Bulldog Deli have joined Healthy Dining and the online resource www.HealthyDiningFinder.com, taking a giant step forward on the healthy eating trend that is quickly gaining national momentum. Recognizing that dining out presents a major challenge for anyone who is trying to slim down or follow a healthy lifestyle, Sweet Peppers Deli is teaming up with Healthy Dining’s nutrition experts to offer guests a selection of healthier menu options and corresponding nutrition information.
Launched in collaboration with the National Restaurant Association and developed with partial funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), HealthyDiningFinder.com is the go-to-guide for health-conscious consumers who love to eat out. This free resource takes the guesswork out of identifying healthful choices on restaurant menus, enabling consumers to search by restaurant name, location, price range, take-out availability, and more. Nutrition information (including calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, sugars, protein and fruit/vegetable cups) for each featured menu item is provided on the website.
Sweet Peppers Deli featured dishes include:
The Turkey N’ Avocado, Barbeque Shrimp Crisp Wrap and Asian Chicken Salad are all under 550 calories. In fact, the entire LiteLine Menu at Sweet Peppers is less than 550 calories.
“With the new Sweet Peppers menu roll-out already scheduled, we felt this was great timing to jump on the bandwagon of healthier eating on the state and national level and partnering with HealthyDiningFinder.com was an effective way to do it. We consistently listened to our guests who made comments that they were on weight watchers or needed nutritional information,” states Arma Salazar, Director of Marketing.
Sweet Peppers Delis are located in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, and South Carolina and soon in Georgia. To date there are 19 stores with 5 corporate stores in Starkville, Columbus and Tupelo, MS. The flagship store, Bulldog Deli opened its doors in 1981, in Starkville, MS.
