When it comes to Red Robin, it’s usually the catchy, “Red Robin, yummmmm,” commercial jingle that first pops in one’s mind.
Now the famous burger chain might have reason to change their slogan to, “Red Robin, awwwww.”
The Colorado-based chain of more than 400 restaurants is in the headlines for a good Samaritan act by one of its managers that, it turns out, is not all that unusual.
A manager at the Red Robin in Apex, N.C., paid it forward by comping the dinner of one very pregnant woman dining with her family.
As first reported by Consumerist, the manager joked with the woman, Amie Sivon, a local attorney, about her Red Robin dinner possibly being her last meal before giving birth. When Sivon and her husband, Jason, dining with their 2-year-old son, got the bill, Sivon’s $11.50 meal had been deducted from their total, with nothing more said than a “MOM 2 BEE GOOD LUC” note.
The now-viral story – told by Sivon to Consumerist only in hopes it would “make businesses see the value of being more personable,” he told ABCNews.com – is nothing out of the ordinary for Red Robin team members.
