Regal Entertainment Group Adds Healthy Menu Options with GoPicnic Meals
Balanced, Ready-To-Eat Meals Available to Moviegoers Nationwide
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- March 20, 2013
Regal Entertainment Group (NYSE: RGC), a leading motion picture exhibitor
owning and operating the largest theatre circuit in the United States,
announced that four healthy ready-to-eat meals from GoPicnic Brands Inc. will
be available in more than 500 Regal Entertainment Group locations nationwide
beginning in April. These prepackaged, nutritious and flavorful menu choices
offer a satisfying addition to current concession offerings.
“Regal constantly tests new menu items and listens to our guests. We found a
significant number of moviegoers who sampled the gluten-free, lower-calorie
GoPicnic meals were pleased to see this option available and would be
interested in purchasing it again on their next visit,” stated Rob Del Moro,
Chief Purchasing Officer at Regal Entertainment Group.
GoPicnic meals were created with the consumers’ health, diet and lifestyle in
mind. For a busy professional, a hungry kid or a moviegoer in search of a
hearty snack, GoPicnic has the solution with satisfying ready-to-eat meals.
All GoPicnic meals are nutritionally balanced, and contain five individually
wrapped food items that can be eaten together or enjoyed one-by-one. Each of
the four GoPicnic meals Regal will offer are gluten-free, with 400 calories or
less, and no artificial colors or flavors, trans fats, high-fructose corn
syrup, or added MSG.
Julie Stamberger, CEO and president of GoPicnic Brands, says that this is
great news for health-conscious consumers. “This is truly a blockbuster
development,” said Stamberger. “Regal Entertainment Group, the largest motion
picture exhibitor in the United States, had the foresight to recognize that
many consumers are looking for healthier options when they snack, as well as
food that fits with their individual dietary requirements. GoPicnic meals
satisfy these needs – and taste great!”
