Olive Garden’s New Deal: $100 For 7 Weeks Of Unlimited Pasta
Olive Garden is offering virtually unlimited pasta for just $100.
The restaurant’s new promotion is called the “Never Ending Pasta Pass.” The card gives buyers access to all-you-can-eat pasta, salad, bread sticks and soda for seven weeks. The deal also gets free bottomless soft drinks for your fellow guests.
The company is only selling 1,000 Pasta Passes on its website starting Monday, September 8 at 3:00 p.m.
If a customer were to use their pass once a day, every day, for seven weeks, they would be paying $2.04 per carb-loaded meal.
According to CalorieKing.com, an Olive Garden meal of 2 bread sticks, 2 “garden fresh” salads, a plate of spaghetti with meat sauce, and plate of fettuccine alfredo would add up to about 2,510 calories and 267 grams of carbohydrates.
The promotion comes at the same time as the restaurant’s “never-ending pasta bowl” promotion which gives customers unlimited pasta for $9.99 (for just one visit). Olive Garden is looking to improve on slumping summer sales. Darden Restaurants Inc. reported U.S. same-restaurant sales for the first quarter to be approximately -1.3 percent for Olive Garden.
