Activist hedge fund Starboard Value used a three hundred slide presentation in order to get the point across that Olive Garden was serving mediocre, inauthentic Italian food. The firm was successful in its attempt to take over Olive Garden’s board, which may make this news a bit more confusing.
Starting June 1st, Olive Garden will begin serving a sandwich with buns made from their signature bread sticks. The choices are chicken parmesan and meatball, and appear to come with a side of fries if the picture provided by Olive Garden is anything to go by.
And yes, they will also come with the signature unlimited bread sticks.
