NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Shoney's®, an all-American iconic restaurant brand, will remember America's fallen military members this Memorial Day (Monday, May 27) by serving a free All-American Burger™ to all veterans and active duty military members.



"It's our way of saying 'Thank You!' to the heroes who fought for our freedom while treating our veterans and troops to a great American burger on Memorial Day," said David Davoudpour, Chairman and CEO of Shoney's. 

According to Davoudpour, service members will be treated to Shoney's Signature favorite All-American Burger, a freshly prepared, hand-pattied, grain-fed, 100% ground beef, cooked to order burger, served on a toasted corn-dusted bun with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles and mayonnaise.

"It's been a guest favorite for many years," said Davoudpour.

Since acquiring the great American eatery in 2006, Shoney's top gun has been on a 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 and served as a popular post-WWII family destination when it began serving guests 66 years ago.

"For generations, Shoney's has always been a 'Welcome Home' sign to America's military," said Davoudpour. "This Monday, we look forward to welcoming our veterans and troops with a free burger as we remember those who made our very freedom possible."

Shoney's offer of a free All-American Burger to veterans and active duty military service members is available on Monday, May 27, 2013 at participating restaurants while supplies last. There is a limit of one per day per military service member and the offer is not valid in conjunction with any other offers. Shoney's military guests will need to provide proof of military service.
