7 New Menu Items Friendly's Is Releasing This Spring
Last year was a tumultuous one for the family dine-in restaurant Friendly's, whose legacy spans more than 80 years. The company declared bankruptcy but was luckily bought out of it by Amici Partners Group, signaling a fresh start for the chain best known for its ice cream and burgers.
Not only does Friendly's live on with all its 130 restaurant locations intact, but it's also ready to get back in the saddle with a handful of new menu items. From March 15 through June 6, you'll be able to order six new Fan Favorite mains as well as a new sundae flavor. The chain is offering a Fan Favorite bundle for $11.99 plus tax, which will include one of these dishes plus any sundae of your choice.
