Mississauga, ON – May 5, 2011 – After marking its 30th birthday last year, Casey's Grill ? Bar is continuing to push the casual dining culinary envelope with the launch of three tasty new menus including a Gluten-Free Menu, Desserts Menu and Kids Menu. The new Gluten-Free menu is being offered in 14 Casey's locations throughout Ontario. While the new Desserts and Kids menus are being launched in all of Casey's locations in Ontario.
Casey's motto is "Food First" and this commitment to ensure all Ontario family members can come to the table – regardless of any dietary restrictions – and, enjoy premium, made-to-order food while dining out is being applauded by the Canadian Celiac Association.
"The Canadian Celiac Association is pleased to see Casey's Grill ? Bar, a leading casual dining chain, take the initiative and develop a gluten-free menu for its guests that offers a wide range of menu items," says Jim McCarthy, Executive Director of the Canadian Celiac Association. "There are more than 250,000 Canadians living with Celiac disease and an additional million or more with gluten intolerance. Therefore it is important for casual dining chains such as Casey's to help lead the way and ensure that all family members can enjoy a great meal while dining out without being limited in their choices due to dietary concerns."
Casey's new Gluten-Free menu features a tempting selection of some of Casey's guest favourites including the Fiesta Nachos, Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, Cedar Plank Salmon, Chicken Penne, 12 oz New York Steak, Rotisserie Chicken and a Mini Peanut Butter Brownie Sundae. The 14 Casey's locations offering the new Gluten-Free Menu include Brampton (Bovaird and Orion), Brantford, Gloucester, Guelph, Kapuskasing, Kitchener (Sunrise and Victoria), Milton, Newmarket, North Bay, Sudbury and Toronto (Dundas/Jarvis and Front St.). Prices for the new Gluten-Free Menu range from $2.99 - $27.99.
Casey's new Dessert Menu takes a cue from the hottest dessert flavour trends for 2011 including cinnamon, vanilla and the ever-popular chocolate with new dishes like Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes with Carmel and Chocolate sauces for dipping, Pecan Pie, a Mini-Cheesecake Trio and the "must-try' new Dessert Nachos. Popular desserts from Casey's previous Desserts Menu are also making a comeback on the new menu including its famous Mile High Chocolate Cake and the Apple Mary – a 25-year-old family recipe from Casey's co-founder Nick Perpick. Prices for the new Desserts Menu range from $3.99 - $9.99.
With prices starting at $6.99, the new Kids Menu is sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters with choices such as Mini Burgers, Crisp Tempura Battered Fish, Crispy Chicken Strips, Vegetable Stir Fry, Penne Pasta with Butter or Tomato Sauce and Casey's Kids Health Check™ Grilled Chicken Breast Strips.
