Steak ’n’ Shake converts to zero trans fat frying oils in all restaurants

Move is part of longer-term initiative to make all offerings zero trans fat

INDIANAPOLIS—The Steak ’n’ Shake Company (NYSE:SNS) is now using frying oil with 0 grams trans fat per serving in all 478 restaurants throughout 19 states.

“As one of America’s oldest restaurant chains, Steak ’n’ Shake is dedicated to serving our loyal customers with the same great taste they have come to expect while working to eliminate added trans fats,” said Steak n Shake’s Chief Marketing Officer Steven Schiller.

Steak ’n’ Shake’s long-term plan is to remove added trans fats from the menu wherever possible. In the coming months, Steak n Shake will continue to identify options for food products that are made without added trans fats.

“Incorporating frying oil with 0 grams trans fat is one step in a series of initiatives to respond to growing concerns about health and healthy eating in the U.S.,” Schiller said.

The Steak ’n’ Shake menu includes many food items that have 0 grams trans fat such as its namesake Steakburgers and Milk Shakes. Nutritional information for all Steak n Shake menu items can be found in the online nutritional guide at Updated nutritional information showing trans fat and sugar content will be added to the web site during August 2007.
