TGI Fridays has partnered with Sam Nazarian’s C3 to offer guests fresh Krispy Rice Sushi and new bar offerings.

C3 is Sam Nazarian’s premium quick service restaurant (QSR) company. Under this new partnership, C3’s Krispy Rice Sushi will initially be available across 140 TGI Fridays locations and 300 locations over the next year.

Created by the team behind the Katsuya brand, the Krispy Rice menu is said to offer Japanese flavours with a California twist.

TGI Fridays said that guests can dine in or opt for a take-out and delivery service.

With these new menu additions, the restaurant chain estimates that it will deliver $68.5m in incremental revenue annually and $163m after the menu is rolled out across all TGI locations.

TGI Fridays CEO Brandon Coleman said: “At TGI Fridays, we want our guests to have new and exciting flavour experiences every time they visit and by bringing Krispy Rice, Happy Dad Hard Seltzer, Howler Head and WESAKE to the menu we are delivering on that promise.
