PORT RICHEY SWEET TOMATOES TO OPEN
Sweet Tomatoes Offers Sweet Deal: $5 All-You-Care-To-Eat at Port Richey Location in March
Pre-opening “fun-raiser” benefiting American Red Cross
The newest Sweet Tomatoes, located at 10156 US 19 N in Port Richey, is scheduled to open on Monday, March 7. To celebrate the grand opening, Sweet Tomatoes has partnered with the American Red Cross, by hosting a preview fundraiser event on the following dates:
- Friday, March 4, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
- Saturday, March 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
For only five dollars, guests can enjoy Sweet Tomatoes’ 45-foot salad bar full of fresh, seasonal vegetables and tossed salads, made-from-scratch soups and hand-crafted muffins, focaccia, breads and desserts. Sweet Tomatoes will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to American Red Cross, a charitable organization that provides shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.
The new Port Richey location will offer a rotating menu of more than 100 original, made fresh daily recipes featuring signature salads, soups, bakery goods and hot pasta sauces, at an all-you-care-to-eat price. All food is prepared without the use of artificial flavors, colors, additives or artificial trans fats. A different food theme is featured each month and the most popular menu items are rotated every two weeks. Items are showcased on a 45-foot salad bar and prepared exhibition style every 20 minutes.
“The American Red Cross empowers ordinary people to perform extraordinary acts in emergency situations. We train. We mobilize. We connect donors and volunteers to those in urgent need of a helping hand,” said Janet McGuire, Regional Communications Officer for the American Red Cross. “Whether it is a hurricane or a heart attack; a call for blood or a call for help, the American Red Cross is there. But we can’t do it alone. It takes community partners like Sweet Tomatoes to provide us with the funds necessary to be there when an emergency is at hand.”
Sweet Tomatoes seeks to be a vital and contributing part of each community in which it operates. To reach this goal, restaurants offer a “Fun-Raiser” program through which charities, churches, schools, athletic teams, scout troops and other non-profit organizations may raise funds by hosting in-store events. The restaurants assist in marketing the non-profit’s event by creating master flyers for distribution and promotion.
Sweet Tomatoes in Port Richey will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on weekdays, 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on Sundays. For more information visit www.sweetomatoes.com. For more information on the American Red Cross visit www.redcross.org.
