ATLANTA, April 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On the fourth Thursday of April this year, nearly 37 million school-aged children and 3.5 million different workplaces across the country will participate in Take Your Child to Work Day, which was started as a way to introduce girls and boys to the career world through real-life hands-on experience. Krystal® restaurants will also be celebrating Take Your Child to Work Day with a unique twist on the Business Lunch – 50-cent Pups, the brand's signature mini-hot dogs.
"Getting kids actively involved in their futures is an effort we're proud to support," said Alice Crowder, Vice President of Marketing for The Krystal Company®.
