Burger King will be launching its new thicker, reduced-sodium fries by giving away free value-size servings at all 25 BK Oahu and neighbor island restaurants and AAFES locations on Dec. 16.

No purchase necessary and orders will be limited to one per customer.

The fries will contain 20 percent less sodium than previously, and are said to have a coating that keeps them crisper and hotter longer.

Zippy’s a finalist for national beef award

December 1st, 2011

Zippy’s Restaurants is a finalist for the National Beef Backer Award, which will be presented at the 2012 Cattle Industry Convention and Trade Show, Feb. 1 through 4, in Nashville, Tenn.

The finalist status came with Hawaii Cattlemen’s Council and the Hawaii Beef Industry Council’s awarding Zippy’s the 2011 Beef Backer Award for the company’s support of the beef industry.

The organizations cited Zippy’s as a leader in beef promotion for chain restaurants. Hawaii’s beef industry hopes that consumer and food service use of local ground beef will create enough purchasing volume to continue to keep local production viable.

For the competition, Zippy’s Research and Development Chef, Wayne Komamura, developed a recipe reminiscent of an old-fashioned, kama’aina style, homemade hamburger, using beef grass-fed, home-grown beef.
