Italian restaurant chain Olive Garden is introducing a new all-you-can-eat pass for one year. The Never Ending Pasta Pass will allow 1,000 superfans the opportunity to buy an exclusive Annual Pasta Pass for only $300. The Annual Pasta Pass includes 52 weeks of unlimited servings of guests’ favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks. This unprecedented pass will be available to purchase alongside 23,000 $100 Never Ending Pasta Passes exclusively at www.PastaPass.com for 30 minutes beginning Thursday, Aug. 23 at 11 p.m. Pacific time.
Olive Garden has more than 850 restaurants nationwide and is owned by Darden Restaurants.
Last year, 22,000 Pasta Passes were claimed instantaneously, giving guests an all-access pass to Olive Garden’s most popular promotion of the year, Never Ending Pasta Bowl.
“We have the most passionate fans who look forward to Pasta Pass and Never Ending Pasta Bowl throughout the year, and they’ve made it clear that eight weeks just isn’t long enough,” said Jennifer Arguello, executive vice president of marketing for Olive Garden. “So we listened, and we’re excited to give our guests more of what they’ve been asking for – an Annual Pasta Pass that extends our Never Ending Pasta Bowl promotion year-round.”
