(August 30-Charlotte, North Carolina) September kicks off NO KID HUNGRY MONTH and Charlotte based Salsarita’s Fresh Mexican Grill is once again pitching in to help this worthy cause started by Share Our Strength in 2010.
“This year we are keeping it simple and leaving the decision to help up to our customers,” said Kelly O’Dell, Director of Marketing for the 80 unit plus chain. “For the month of September we are going to do a ‘round up your check’ campaign where guests can round up their check to the nearest dollar and that portion will be donated to No Kid Hungry. All guests who round up and donate will get a little something extra with their receipts from Salsarita’s as a “thank you.”
Last year the popular restaurant chain donated $19,000 to this cause. “We anticipate that this year will bring in around $40,000”, adds O’Dell. No Kid Hungry says just $1 connects a kid in need with 10 meals.
Founded in Charlotte, N.C. in 2000, Salsarita’s Fresh Mexican Grill (formerly known as Salsarita’s Fresh Cantina) offers Mexican favorites such as six flavorful house-made salsas, custom burritos, tacos, nachos and salads made fresh to order with an extensive selection of proteins, toppings and fillings. Salsarita's was acquired by franchise industry veteran Phil Friedman in 2011 and operates more than 80 locations in 17 states, including 13 that are company-owned.
