Applebee’s Honors Veterans with a FREE Meal on Veterans Day
This year, Applebee’s will again honor veterans and active-duty U.S. military by offering a free meal on Veterans Day(Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017) from a selection of seven entrees at more than 1,800 restaurants nationwide.
I think that it is Applebee’s neighborhood friendly atmosphere that draws locals in but did you realize that Veterans Day is one of the busiest days of the year at Applebee’s and that this year marks the tenth consecutive year that Applebee’s has honored America’s veterans and active-duty military; Applebee’s is proud to have served more than 8.3 million free meals since 2008.
Here’s a really neat peek at just what this gesture means to these men and women who have served our country, I love this video so much:
Who is eligible?
All veterans and active-duty military are eligible to receive a free meal at Applebee’s restaurants nationwide from a selection of seven entrees. The special menu this year includes: Butcher’s Meat and Potatoes, Oriental Chicken Salad, Fiesta Lime Chicken, Chicken Tenders Platter, Double Crunch Shrimp, American Standard Burger and Three-Cheese Chicken Cavatappi.
Applebee’s created this movement on Veterans Day as a simple way of saying thanks. With our large footprint of restaurants in neighborhoods across the country, we knew we had a unique ability and the responsibility to do something big to honor the men and women who have and continue to sacrifice to keep our country safe
Stay Social with Applebee’s
I actually didn’t realize it until I started writing about Applebee’s but this chain restaurant has one of the most unique social followings and I highly recommend that you follow the Applebee’s Facebook page. They share so many neat stories of customers and employees and I have been really moved at how they truly take the neighborhood bar and grill concept to an entirely new level and their love for our nation’s veterans is just one example of this that I love.
