Did you know that an estimated 25 percent of American households stock hummus in the fridge as a regular food item? Or that, according to the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council, annual U.S. grocery sales of the savory dip now exceed $725 million? Considering that just twenty years ago, it barely topped $5 million, our eating habits are clearly on course toward ‘Hummus is the New Guac” territory. As we gear up to celebrate International Hummus Day on May 13th, VERTS Mediterranean Grill, known for its healthy chef-inspired takes on Mediterranean street food, appears to agree.
To honor the holiday, fast casual concept VERTS Mediterranean Grill is spreading its love for the tasty Mediterranean favorite by bestowing free hummus and pita chips upon its diners. Recently named one of the top 10 hot restaurant brands to watch by CNBC, the restaurant will give away the flavorful spread from 11am to 10pm this May 13th to patrons who download or use the VERTS Rewards app.
To get in on this offer, simply go to VERTS, and order up some hummus. At checkout, open the app, use the reward code sent to your smartphone, and enjoy the taste of free hummus and pita chips. Diners can also enter a social media contest to be held that day: to enter, just take a photo of your meal and tag it #VertsHummusDay on Instagram.
