Company announces free all-you-can-eat hotcakes on Veterans Day
This Veterans Day, Bob Evans Farms salutes service to country with a hearty plate of hotcakes. The company has announced that veterans and active military personnel will receive free, all-you-can-eat hotcakes at its restaurants on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11. All these honored servicemen and women need do is show a valid military ID.
Veterans are a large portion of Bob Evans' consumers. According to the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs, 8 percent of residents in Bob Evans' home state of Ohio are veterans.
"These dedicated men and women have served us, now we're proud to serve them a free breakfast on Veteran's Day," said President of Bob Evans Restaurants Randy Hicks. "We're grateful for their service to country, and a heaping stack of hotcakes is our way of saying thank you."
Guests must provide proof of service, including: U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card, U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card, Current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES), wearing uniform, or Veterans Organization Card (i.e., American Legion and VFW).
