I used to love going to Souplantation when I was younger. I loved the all-you-can-eat soup, salad, bread, dessert, and more. Plus, it’s an affordable meal idea when you want to go out as a family on a budget!

Through the end of May, Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes are touring selected states in the Sweetie’s Great American Road Trip!  Sweetie, the beloved mascot of Sweet Tomatoes and Souplantation, recently kicked off a Great American Road Trip to help raise money for Boys & Girls Club of America. He started in Florida and has been making stops across the country, making his way back to San Diego, the Garden Fresh headquarters.  In each tour, 20% of the entire day’s sales will benefit the local chapters of the Boys & Girls Club!  Sweetie will also be making special guest appearances at select restaurant locations in each market.

Guests located outside one of the 12 tour stops can still celebrate May’s Great American Road Trip in stores and follow Sweetie online throughout his travels via a map that will show him moving across the country.  The blog will experience a full Sweetie takeover and he’ll also be keeping everyone updated through on-the-road tweets.

Finally, the American Road Trip menu, Sweetie’s visits to the restaurants, activity sheets will be available for download all month as well as different American Road Trip themed desktops and screensaver and fundraiser fliers online.

On the specified date, all restaurants in the tour city will participate in the 20% fundraiser:

Pacific Northwest (all Oregon and Washington locations) – May 17
Bay Area, California – May 20
Los Angeles – May 24
Orange County – May 25
San Diego – May 26

Sweetie will appear at the following locations at the following times:

May 17 – Clackamas, OR restaurant location from 12-3pm
May 17 – Vancouver, WA restaurant location from 5-8pm
May 20 – Downtown San Jose, CA restaurant location from 4-5pm
May 20 – Fremont, CA restaurant location from 6-7pm
May 20 – Pleasanton, CA restaurant location from 7:30-8:30pm
May 24 –  Los Angeles – TBD
May 25 – Orange County – TBD
May 26 – Encinitas (San Diego area) location from 4-6pm
