Valdosta, GA - What do you do when one of your favorite restaurants shuts its doors for good? Well if you're four friends from Orlando, you take a road trip.
Sabrina Lane-Patrick posted on Facebook how much she missed Fazoli's and it turns out, three of her friends did too. The group planned a road trip and before they knew it, Fazoli's offered to sponsor the trip. Early Tuesday morning, the employees of Sea World, packed up and headed for Valdosta, all for unlimited bread sticks.
"We were craving the Fazoli's breadsticks that we remember from our childhood. There's no Fazoli's left in Orlando, and we were missing it and craving it and Valdosta is the closest Fazoli's to us in Orlando, so we thought why not? We all have Tuesdays off, let's make a road trip up to Valdosta and enjoy those unlimited breadsticks that we miss", says Corey Oxman.
The road warriors had custom shirts made by Fazoli's, a gas card, and free pasta, all to make the road trip worth it. Oxman says the bread sticks taste exactly as she remembers from when she was a kid.
The group headed back to Orlando shortly after lunch, but says their trip to Valdosta, and the generosity of Fazoli's ... along with those hot bread sticks, are something they will never forget.
