Cool de Sac
Miami, FL 33131, US
Cool-de-Sac is the latest and most innovative concept to the family-style restaurant industry. Cool-de-Sac is a place to grab a healthy and delicious bite to eat and brings loads of excitement for parents and kids through numerous activity stations that cater to fun and creativity all at the same time. Is the first “kids” place where parents can have a server bring, for example, a gourmet goat cheese salad or a prime beef steak along with a glass of wine so they can actually enjoy their meal. Cool-de-Sac specializes in serving healthy variations of traditional classics so that parents don’t have to worry about what their kids choose off the Cool Kids menu. Fries are cooked in fryers with 0 grams of trans fat, and Cool-de-Sac makes it known that they sneak healthy ingredients, like sweet potatoes and carrots, into kids’ favorite meals. Even the milkshakes that are served have protein added to them for that little extra healthy boost.
Cool-de-Sac is intended as the new exciting place where kids want to go and parents will be glad to take them. Combining great food, an exciting atmosphere, and a business focus on kids and parents, Cool-de-Sac positions itself to be at the forefront of a blooming industry.
Cool-de-Sac’s mission is to become a global brand expanding its presence through its franchise program, so far we have sold 11 franchises in 4 countries.
