The BBQ restaurant franchise is stepping up to provide a free meal to veterans and active-duty military personnel on November 11.
Famous Dave’s, the beloved 127-unit barbecue restaurant franchise, is rolling out a Veteran’s Day promotion at all restaurants across the US in an effort to give back to the community and show its appreciation to veteran guests and active-duty military personnel.
On November 11 in honor of Veterans Day, Famous Dave’s is offering a free Georgia Chopped Pork Sandwich and side at all locations to all active and retired military personnel. The promotion will be available for Dine In and To Go orders. When ordering online, guests will choose the sandwich and enter the coupon code “VETERAN” at checkout on famousdaves.com/togo. Veterans must show valid proof of service at pickup.
While many restaurant brands have scaled down promotional offerings or eliminated them altogether amid COVID-19, Famous Dave’s has stepped up to support those who have sacrificed so much for our country. Other brands may require customers to dine-in or make a purchase before receiving the deal, but there is no purchase required for the Famous Dave’s Veteran’s Day promotion.
“2020 has been a very tough year for many, and we look forward to continuing to be a source of comfort for our guests,” said Famous Dave’s CEO Jeff Crivello. “Our Veteran’s Day offer is our small way of showing how grateful we are for our veterans and all they do for us and our communities.”
