Survey Reveals Americans Caught in Mundane World of Everyday Frozen Food; T.G.I. FRIDAY’S Brand Infuses Fun of FRiDAY’s into Freezers Across America with Nine New Flavorful Meals
PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Although frozen meals have come a long way since the first TV dinners and pot pies of the 1950s, a recent survey indicates that Americans are still hungering for more from their convenient cuisine. In an effort to end frozen meal mediocrity, T.G.I. FRIDAY’S Frozen Foods has launched an anything-but-boring line of flavorful “ Entrees for One” that combine restaurant quality with the convenience of a ready-made, individual frozen meal.
“It’s time to shake things up in the frozen food aisle and rethink the possibilities. Although frozen meals are designed to be quick and convenient solutions, it doesn't mean you have to settle for the same old boring, bland meal every time”
According to a survey conducted by Wakefield Research, 69 percent of Americans agree that today’s frozen entrees are far from restaurant quality. And only 11 percent describe their frozen meal as flavorful, yet they admit to eating about 100 frozen meals each year. The new line of T.G.I. FRIDAY’S “ Entrees for One” solves frozen food boredom with nine new entrees inspired by the bold and fun flavors of the famed T.G.I. FRIDAY’S restaurants. From Sizzling Steak Fajitas to Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo, the new varieties infuse a fresh new flavor into the frozen meal category.
