"Our guests understand that 'guac is extra' is not just a phrase, it's a testament to the quality and freshness of our real food," said Stephanie Perdue, Vice President of Brand Marketing. "There's no better way to celebrate an additional day on the calendar than with our iconic guacamole not being extra."
