Applebee’s on customer service for Veteran’s Day

Old GloryApplebee’s Restaurants plan to serve more than one million free meals to active, reserve, and veteran military service personnel across the country today in honor of Veteran’s Day.

The date was originally chosen after World War I ended at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. The holiday was originally named Armistice Day, but in 1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed it Veteran’s Day to honor all American veterans of all wars. It has become the celebration of our country’s military men and women who put themselves out there to protect all of us in the free world  where we have the privilege to live.

“It is a real privilege for us to serve our veterans and active-duty military on this national day of respect and remembrance. Veteran’s Day at Applebee’s is a time for our military to connect with fellow service mean and women, swap stories and enjoy a great meal,” stated Mike Archer, president of Applebee’s Services, Inc.

What a stellar example of customer service!
