Garlic Jims Announces Trans Fat Free Menu

Fresh ingredients mean a healthier and tastier pizza
 
EVERETT, WA (February, 2007)— Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza®, the first and only “gourmet” carryout and delivery pizza chain, proudly announces a trans fat free menu. Trans fats, which are neither required nor beneficial for health, are not found in any of Garlic Jim’s fresh, gourmet ingredients. Garlic Jim’s health conscious menu is just one of the many reasons their pizzas taste so good.
 
As consumers become increasingly aware of trans fats and the health risks associated with them, people are starting to demand healthier options. Cities from New York to Los Angeles and everywhere in between are starting to rebel against the unsaturated fats by taking such actions as banning them from restaurants. Even Crisco® recently announced it’s first reformulation in 95 years, recreating its entire line of shortening products to contain zero grams trans fat per serving.
 
Their completely trans fat free menu makes Garlic Jim’s one of the most health conscious pizza choices available. All of their ingredients, ranging from traditional choices of pepperoni and cheese to the more “gourmet” options including marinated artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes, are fresh. “We take pride in the fact that we make a product that is both healthy and delicious,” says Dwayne Northrop, chairman and CEO of Garlic Jim’s. “Taking the initiative to have a healthy and trans fat free menu is one of the things that puts us on a higher level of pizza creation.”
 
Garlic Jim’s has grown from two open units in 2004 to 36 open units and 93 franchises sold in 2006.  In addition to current locations in Oregon, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Washington, Garlic Jim’s has units under development in California, New Jersey, Denver and Dallas. With projections of doubling in size in 2007, Garlic Jim’s is sure to become the fastest growing pizza franchise in the country.
