That's a wrap on 50 years of snackers, Olgasauce, and, well, wraps.

Celebrating five decades is Olga's Kitchen, the fast-casual Michigan brand introduced in 1970 by food visionary and founder Olga Loizon. Loizon, who started making her signature homemade pita bread out of a modest restaurant operation in Birmingham, died last year at the age of 92, leaving a deliciously seasoned legacy of beef, lamb, and bread behind.

To commemorate the restaurant's hallmark anniversary, Olga's Kitchen is hosting a party via its mobile app where people will be given access to a month of celebratory promotions throughout September. 
Each week, Olga's will unlock a different deal, which can be honored for dine-in or carryout orders. To kick things off, guests can buy an Original Olga made with beef, lamb, vine-ripened tomatoes, sweet onion, and Olgasauce, for .50 cents with any purchase on Sept. 1 only. The following week, the chain will knock $5 off the Olga's Family Meal Deal. Other deals include free snackers, free dessert, as well as a buy one, get one Original Olga deal, which will be offered the week of Sep. 21.

In the past, Olga's Kitchen has offered discounted menu items for UAW workers on strike, as well as gave free snackers to women on International Women's Day.
