16 Mar Celebrate National Poultry Day at Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza
First Restaurant Chain of its Kind to Serve All-Natural Antibiotic-Free Chicken
(San Diego, CA) March 16, 2016 – Choose the healthier option by ditching chicken that has been raised with human and animal antibiotics, at Oggi’s Sports | Brewhouse | Pizza (Oggi’s) on National Poultry Day, March 19.
Oggi’s is known for its pizza, award-winning craft beers and sports-centric atmosphere but only few know that the successful franchise also pioneered the movement to serve all-natural antibiotic-free poultry and ham in the casual restaurant category. In addition to being free of antibiotics, all-natural meats have no artificial ingredients, no added coloring or chemical preservations, with minimal processing.
“Oggi’s stands for ‘today’ in Italian symbolizing freshness as well as the ‘here and the now,’” explains Estella Ferrera, Oggi’s Vice President. “This is consistent with our high quality pizza, pasta, salads, and beer, but now it also applies to the quality of poultry and ham we serve to our customers. At Oggi’s we care about what our customers are putting into their bodies. By providing antibiotic-free poultry and ham, we are providing our customers with the best products available.”
The better food movement has snowballed and is now unstoppable. Consumer demand for responsibly raised products have led to more talk about the issue and a wider availability of all-natural antibiotic-free meats.
“While many people are just starting to pay attention to this issue, we have been devoted to serving all-natural antibiotic-free poultry and ham for 2 years now,” said Ferrera. “We are pleased to see others taking steps to serve their guests with all-natural meats, and curbing antibiotic use in livestock.”
Dishes featuring all-natural antibiotic-free chicken include:
Club Flatbread – Brushed with garlic olive oil, topped with Mozzarella cheese, grilled all-natural chicken breast and chopped crispy bacon. Finished with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, diced avocado and drizzled with Oggi’s creamy Ranch dressing.
Slam Dunk Pizza – Brushed with our unique spicy wing sauce, topped with red onions, spicy marinated all-natural chicken breast and toasted sesame seeds. Served with Oggi’s creamy Ranch dip to cool you down.
Chicken Tequila Pasta – Marinated all-natural chicken breast, a touch of Tequila, sautéed with red and green bell peppers, red onions, finished with a jalapeno, cilantro, and lime cream sauce. Served over spinach Fettuccini pasta.
Mediterranean Wrap – All-natural chicken breast, roasted red pepper hummus, cucumber, marinated red onions, Feta cheese, lettuce and tomatoes wrapped in a wheat tortilla.
Additionally, guests can find healthy all-natural chicken dishes on Oggi’s Lighter Side Menu (under 550 calories) and gluten-free options throughout Oggi’s menu.
