For the tenth consecutive year, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill + Bar® will honor veterans and active members of the United States military by offering each a free meal at any of the nearly 1,800 Applebee’s restaurants in the United States on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11, 2017. Applebee’s is one of the first casual dining brands to honor America’s heroes with a free meal on Veterans Day and has donated more than 8.3 million free meals to veterans and active-duty military since beginning the program in 2008. Applebee’s restaurants nationwide expect to serve nearly one million more free meals this Veterans Day.
“Veterans Day is deeply rooted in our Applebee’s DNA and our commitment to giving back to the neighborhoods we serve. Our franchisees and their restaurants truly go above and beyond the annual free meal, opening their doors and their hearts to the communities in which they operate. Each day the team members in Applebee’s restaurants ensure that our heroes feel welcomed, honored and a part of the neighborhood when they visit us,” said John Cywinski, president of Applebee’s. “We are thankful for the sacrifices our veterans and active duty military personnel have made to protect our country, and it is with pleasure that Applebee’s restaurants serve them on Veterans Day and every day.”
