Mimi’s Month of Mom – Because A One Day Celebration Of Mom Just Isn’t Enough

Mimi’s loves Moms and Moms love Mimi’s. As a favorite French-inspired dining spot among Moms for generations, Mimi’s Cafe wants to show how much it really cares for the women in our life who do so much. So this year the restaurant is extending the traditional one day celebration on Mother’s Day to a whole month celebration called: “Mimi’s Month of Mom.”

“Mimi’s Month of Mom” not only features a special menu filled with her favorite Mimi’s dishes on Mother’s Day, the fete continues starting May 14 with a coupon offer on wholesome Family Meals To-Go to give Mom a break in the kitchen. In addition to providing delicious, freshly prepared meals for Mom at a tremendous value, Mimi’s, in coordination with American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, will provide tips via Facebook and Twitter about exercise, eating right and the importance of regular checkups to keep Moms healthy and feeling great.

“At Mimi’s, Moms are really special, so why limit our appreciation for the women in our lives to just one day?” says Mark Mears, Mimi’s President and Chief Concept Officer. “In May, we plan on honoring Moms all month long instead of just on Mother’s Day to show them how much they mean to us. We’re not only providing Mimi’s quality meals at great values, but also solutions that make life easier so Mom can have more time for herself and her family.  Moms are constantly putting their family’s needs and wants in front of their own. And because they have a special place in our hearts, we want to give them tools to take care of their own heart in order to live long, healthy lives with tips from the Go Red For Women movement.”

Celebrate Mother’s Day at Mimi’s

As part of the “Month of Mom,” Mimi’s will continue its Mother’s Day tradition on Sunday, May 13, by offering a specially selected menu that includes all of Mom’s favorites, from new French-inspired dishes to Mimi’s Classic favorites.
