Ciccio Cali is the first restaurant in the Tampa Bay Area to make the switch to organic fountain soda
Tampa, FL – Ciccio Restaurant Group, one of the fastest growing restaurant groups in the Tampa Bay Area, is taking a bold step to contribute to the overall health and wellness of its customers by replacing regular fountain sodas with all natural, organic soda products from Maine Root at all locations of their latest concept, Ciccio Cali.
Over the last few years, studies have been released on the affects of high-fructose corn syrup on overall health. These studies suggest that high-fructose corn syrup is bad for your health and should be consumed in limited doses, if at all.
“We want to look out for our customers and their health,” said Matt Lanza, Partner at Ciccio Restaurant Group. “This is something we truly believe in and that fits in well with our company culture. We’re excited to be the first in Tampa to offer organic soda in fountain form in our restaurants.”
“Maine Root is a healthier alternative to high-fructose corn syrup soft drinks. We use a non-GMO alternative, Fair Trade Certified Organic Evaporated Cane Juice to sweeten our sodas,” said Mark Seiler, President and CEO of Maine Root. “We’re happy to be a part of Ciccio Cali’s all natural, healthier menu – it’s a great fit!”
Maine Root products are now available at all three Ciccio Cali locations – St. Petersburg, Tampa Palms and Brandon.
