KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Honoring all who have served this Veterans Day, Pilot Flying J is inviting all active-duty and retired military veterans to enjoy free breakfast Nov. 8-11 at the more than 650 participating Pilot and Flying J travel centers across the United States. As part of the company's long history of giving back, Pilot Flying J is also donating $100,000 to the Call of Duty Endowment to help veterans transition to successful careers after the military.
"As a veteran-founded company, we have immense gratitude for our country's servicemen and women," said Ken Parent, president of Pilot Flying J. "We proudly honor those who serve and look forward to welcoming veterans to our travel centers to enjoy a coffee and breakfast on us this Veterans Day. In appreciation of our many veteran team members and guests, it is our privilege to support the Call of Duty Endowment to help veterans find great careers."
"The Call of Duty Endowment is grateful for this generous gift from Pilot Flying J and their commitment to the military community," said Dan Goldenberg, executive director of Call of Duty Endowment. "Every cent will be used to place veterans into high quality jobs and we estimate it will result in the placement of more than 190 veterans. That represents security and a successful transition into civilian life for a company-sized group of veterans and their families."
Veterans can visit any participating Pilot or Flying J Travel Center from Nov. 8-11 to redeem their exclusive offer in the Pilot Flying J app* for a free Pilot Coffee and their choice of one free PJ Fresh® breakfast sandwich, breakfast pizza or breakfast grill item. The offer includes any size cup of Pilot Flying J's "best coffee on the interstate" with premium coffee varieties, available hot or iced and ground fresh with bean-to-cup. Download the Pilot Flying J app** to access the Veterans Day offer and find nearby Pilot and Flying J locations.
In honor of Veterans Day, Pilot Flying J is also launching a new limited-edition stars and stripes design on its coffee cups for guests to join in showing their appreciation for all who served. NASCAR partner Michael Annett will join Pilot Flying J in honoring veterans with the debut of the stars and stripes design on his JR Motorsports No. 1 Pilot Flying J Chevrolet in November and a chance for veterans to win VIP garage access passes for one of three upcoming races.
