NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Shoney's®, the great American eatery and a family favorite dining destination for decades, will honor all dads this Sunday, June 16 on Father's Day with a signature Hot Fudge Cake with the purchase of a meal or entree.



"There is no better way for dads to celebrate their special day than with their family at Shoney's," said David Davoudpour, Chairman and CEO of Shoney's. "This Sunday, we look forward to welcoming all families and fathers with a wonderful buffet and a delicious free bonus for dad."

Shoney's Father's Day Buffet will feature freshly prepared selections, including homemade meatloaf, garlic shrimp, ribs, flounder, fried and baked chicken, and a fresh salad, fruit and soup buffet.

Since acquiring Shoney's in 2006, Davoudpour has been on a driven and spirited mission to revitalize and reinvigorate Shoney's family-friendly, southern style restaurant chain, which was one of the first family casual dining concepts in the United States. "For generations, Shoney's fresh home-cooked goodness has been a part of America's heritage," said Davoudpour.

Shoney's famous Hot Fudge Cake has played a key role in the brand's recent resurgence. For the past two years, Davoudpour had declared December 6th "National Free Hot Fudge Cake Day." Shoney's serves more than 2 million Hot Fudge Cakes each year.

"We see that as 2 million smiles a year," said Davoudpour. "In fact, the only way to make this treat better is to give it away to dads, so that's what we're going to do on Father's Day."

Shoney's offer of a free Hot Fudge Cake is available on Sunday, June 16, 2013 and is valid with the purchase of any entree or meal at participating restaurants while supplies last. There is a limit of one per day per dad and the offer is not valid in conjunction with any other offers.
