Giggles N’ Hugs Offers Beyond Meat Vegan Burger Patties And Beef Crumbles with Its Already Fresh, Healthy, and Organic Menu

Giggles N Hugs Has Been Using Beyond Meat since 2018

Los Angeles, California, UNITED STATES

Los Angeles, May 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- May 8th 2019- Giggles N’ Hugs, Inc. (OTCQB: GIGL), owner and operator of family-friendly restaurants that bring together high-end, organic food with active, cutting-edge play and entertainment for children, has been using Beyond Meat products since 2018 and it is now adding the 100% plant-based, vegan Beyond Burger® patty to its delicious, fresh, organic, healthy menu.

“One of the unique aspects of why customers, including some of the biggest celebrities in the country, love Giggles N’ Hugs is because of its fresh and healthy organic menu,” commented Joey Parsi, Founder and CEO. “Since the launch of the company in 2009, aside from the play, activities, and entertainment it provides to families, Giggles N’ Hugs has differentiated itself from other family restaurant concepts by offering a host of menu items that are organic, fresh, and healthy for all families to enjoy.”

Currently on the menu, Giggles N’ Hugs uses the Beyond Burger® vegan “beef” crumbles for its spaghetti Bolognese, which based on feedback from customers is among the most delicious in town and is a lot healthier for customers. Giggles N’ Hugs will be adding the Beyond Beef vegan burger patties as an alternative to traditional burgers currently on its menu. The Beyond Burger patty is free from GMOs, gluten, and soy and has lower saturated fat than regular beef, but still delivers flame-broiled flavor and 20 grams of plant-based protein.

In addition to offering a variety of fresh, healthy, and organic menu items we offer our customers, since the opening of our first location, Giggles N’ Hugs was one of the first if not the first restaurant companies in the country to sneak in pureed veggies into kids’ favorite foods. Called Mom's Tricky Treat sauce on the menu, Giggles N’ Hugs secretly blends pureed, organic vegetables into kids’ favorite menu items such as our famous Mac N Cheese, which comes with pureed carrots and squash hidden in the cheese sauce. Our Pizza for kids comes with pureed organic mushrooms and carrots hidden in our Pizza sauce, and our Penne Alfredo comes with pureed, organic cauliflower hidden in the cream sauce. It makes the dishes much tastier, healthier, and the kids love it.

The company focuses on quality ingredients for all of its menu items, including regular beef, which we source from hormone/antibiotic free cattle, as well as all-natural chicken breast, and our breads are made fresh daily by local artisan bakeries who, like us, are dedicated to using the finest ingredients available.

As Master chef of Giggles N’ Hugs and creator of its menu, Greg Schroeppel, stated, “I've always been impressed with the Giggles N’ Hugs concept and felt it was always ahead of its time, even for the Southern California market.  We've been offering healthy, organic menu items to families for years, including vegetarian and vegan options. Prior to Giggle N’ Hugs, I had never seen the focus on creating truly healthy menu for kids that the kids actually love!  We have continued to evolve our menu offerings with the introduction of Beyond Meat (BYND) products last year.  The use of vegetarian burgers by large chains over the last year has really helped to boost sales and get trial by new non-vegetarian guests and their kids.  People are shocked that it's not meat, and our response from the menu additions has been great!  It's nice to see so many families focusing on the health and diet of their children, and I'm proud to be working with Giggles N’ Hugs to continue to champion that effort.  Vegetarian and vegan cuisine will be a continued area of growth on our menu, especially with the availability of new Beyond Meat (BYND) products.” 

Schroeppel began his cooking career at the world famous Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant 29 years ago and went on to gain extensive fine dining kitchen experience as part of the opening team at Granita and Eureka restaurants.  He has continued his passion for cooking with Perspectives Consulting Group, utilizing his knowledge of high-quality ingredients to develop everything from single dishes to complete new concepts. As an R&D chef, Schroeppel worked closely with food scientists, brokers, and manufacturers to create bold, flavorful dishes for such clients as A & W, Applebee’s, KFC, Arby’s, Arco AM/PM, Frito Lay, La Salsa, Vons, Shoprite, HEB, and others. 

Parsi concluded, “We are excited to add the Beyond Meat vegan burger patties to our healthy and fresh menu for our regular and vegan customers to enjoy. Given that Giggles N’ Hugs is a pioneer with its unique menu and has already been selling Beyond Meat vegan “beef” crumbles in our Spaghetti sauces, by adding the patties, we hope to satisfy our customers changing tastes, which we expect will drive additional foot traffic.”
