The popular comic duo Fix&Foxi presents children's dishes and fun at Germany's most family-friendly casual dining establishment
The all-day gastronomy concept of the 39 German ALEX and 4 Brasserie establishments is aimed at all age groups and aims to provide relaxation and good humour. ALEX has one target group in particular in mind: Children and parents. For the first time, the experience gastronome has created a special children's menu for them. The likeable ambassadors of this lovingly designed menu are the comic heroes Fix&Foxi, who are well-known to young and old alike. Since mid-November, they have been providing fun comics and illustrations, games, puzzles and colouring templates to ensure that the little ones have lots of fun and their parents have a relaxed stay. Above all, the food selection will not be boring, because the booklet contains seven dishes specially created for children, for example chicken nuggets with chips or bionudels in tomato sauce. Of course, favorite desserts decorated to suit children, such as Jell-O and ice cream, are not to be missed.
Family friendliness is not new on ALEX's agenda and is not just lip service. For the fourth time in a row, the restaurateur has been named "Germany's most family-friendly leisure gastronomy company" (study by Welt am Sonntag and Frankfurt's Goethe University). Particularly impressive was the fact that children are treated as fully-fledged guests, all drinks are placed in the middle of the table, there is enough space for baby carriages and, of course, changing tables. These are the extras that make ALEX family- and child-friendly. And which are now ideally complemented by the new cooperation with Your Family Entertainment AG, the licensor of the two lovable foxes Fix&Foxi.
