Applebees Gives Veterans Free Lunch


This Veterans Day in America, Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants will show their appreciation for all our veterans. Disputing the old adage "no such thing as a free lunch", Applebee's is inviting all veterans to lunch or dinner at the restaurant's expense.

Says Mike Archer, Applebee's President:

"It's an honor to host an event that helps the neighborhood come together and say thanks to our veterans and active servicemen and women. We are starting on a small scale to ensure we can best understand how to staff and service these important guests."

Remembering and honoring our veterans

One hundred and sixty four Applebee's will be participating in this effort to express gratitude and respect for all active duty and veteran military members.

Proof of military service includes:

  • U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card
  • U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card
  • DD214
  • LES
  • Citation or Commendation
  • Photograph in uniform
  • Veterans Organization Card

    To find a location near you, go to Applebee's here:

    Applebee's feeds our heroes

    Wouldn't it be wonderful if this idea caught on, and other businesses across the land showed our veterans the honor they have earned?

    Thank you to all our heroes, and thank YOU, Applebee's.
