SPARTANBURG, S.C. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - While Americans may not splurge on extravagant treats in this economy, they will increasingly look to simple pleasures as a more suitable and satisfying way to feel good, according to consumer research. They will find new meaning to a simple cup of coffee and the ritual of enjoying a meal out with family and friends. Denny's (NASDAQ:DENN) wants to make that "meal out" worth it. The restaurant chain knows that with money tight it must lure folks in by offering more than just competitive price points on meals.

"We have to do so much more in this environment," emphasizes Nelson Marchioli, CEO, Denny's. "We listened to consumers and knew we had to give our customers new and interesting reasons to continue to come to eat out. That's why we've created such a large volume of new menu options at Denny's, more than we've done at one time in decades. We're meeting consumer demand for fresh, savory products that are tasty and price worthy."

Now available in Denny's restaurants across the country are new Breakfast Burritos, including Bacon Avocado and Grand Slam Burritos; fresh half or whole salads including Cranberry Pecan Chicken and Prime Rib & Bleu Salad; sandwiches including Chicken Melt, Fried Egg and Prime Rib Philly Melt; and Skillet dinners including Monterey Sirloin and Tilapia Ranchero. Denny's is also introducing their new Breakfast Roast coffee, a special blend specifically designed to give guests a great start to their day, no matter what time of day.

"Denny's has a long history of menu variety, with items offered at affordable prices no matter what time of day or night. From our new Real Breakfast burritos to our fresh new salads and sandwiches to our dinner skillets, we're looking for ways to offer our guests even more truly cravable items they can't get anywhere else," said John Dillon, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development, Denny's.

Denny's is making a concerted effort to re-connect with the consumer, lure them in with what the company is calling the "pleasure principle." Based on comprehensive market research, Denny's knows Americans don't want to give up their simple pleasures. Eating out with friends and family on a daily basis and enjoying meals like breakfast, lunch and dinner without breaking the bank - meals that allow them to instead stretch their dollars - continue to be important.

"It's about the purse," says Mark Chmiel, Chief Marketing Officer, Denny's. "We work hard to make it worth it for our loyal customers to dine with us. Bold and strategic products lure folks in and these additions to our menu allows customers to enjoy an affordable restaurant experience in a new way and keep the pleasure/price ratio in balance."

Additionally, Denny's will launch Better For You menu choices including delicious items with reduced fat or sodium such as turkey bacon, chicken sausage, wheat pancakes, egg whites, fresh fruit, granola and yogurt. They will also add terrific choices for kids: dippable vegetable sticks (carrots, celery and cucumber), apple slices, spaghetti, Jell-O and yogurt. The dippable vegetable sticks will also be part of the general menu.
