On Friday, November 11, the Applebee’s Neighbourhood Grill & Bar will once again show its appreciation for those who protect and serve by offering a complimentary meal from a special menu.
Guests are also encouraged to show their gratitude through the “Neighbours Thanking Neighbours” campaign.
Applebee’s started this tradition to thank the men and women who have kept Canada safe through military service. In the past eight years, Applebee’s has served thousands of free meals to current and former service men and women on Remembrance Day, and has served as a neighbourhood gathering place for people to share a meal with their local heroes and share their gratitude.
Additionally, through the “Neighbours Thanking Neighbours” campaign, participating Applebee’s restaurants encourage guests to celebrate the sacrifices these brave men and women have made on their behalf by leaving a note of gratitude on ‘Thank You Wall Posters’ at their local Applebee’s or online on the Applebee’s Canada Facebook page.
The posters will hang in participating restaurants beginning in early November for guests to leave their story or message of thanks to the members of the Canadian Forces for their past and current service. The posters will be visible to all who come to be honored on Remembrance Day.
“We are proud to once again honor Canada’s service men and women for the sacrifices they make to keep the country safe,” said Daniel del Olmo, President of International, DineEquity, Inc., the parent company of Applebee’s. “This is our opportunity to give back to the people who have given so much for us, and we can’t wait to serve them this Remembrance Day.”
All veterans and Active Duty Canadian Forces will need to provide proof of service to receive their free meal. Qualifying proof of service includes a permanent ID card for active personnel, temporary ID card for reservists, veteran’s card or a photograph in uniform or the wearing of their uniform.
