O’Charley’s Launches 'Hometown Heroes' Initiative

O’Charley’s Restaurant + Bar, the classic American restaurant with locations across 17 states, is launching their “Hometown Heroes” initiative to recognize and support healthcare workers along with first responders on the frontlines of fighting COVID-19 in communities across the country. Hometown Heroes was created to show appreciation to the men and women we depend on to keep us safe through their personal sacrifice.

To say thank you, O’Charley’s locations across the country are working to provide free meals to local healthcare workers and first responders. In addition, O’Charley’s has created a special 25 percent discount for all healthcare workers and first responders in all their stores.

“The brave men and women who are working tirelessly on the frontlines at this challenging time deserve our support and respect,” says Craig Barber, O’Charley’s CEO. “Whether it’s providing free meals at their work or providing a discount so they can affordably feed themselves and their families, we want them to know how thankful we are for them.”

“At O’Charley’s, we live by the mantra “do good by serving,” Barber continues. “It is an honor to use the collective energy and commitment of our team to support these incredible heroes as they continue to fight this virus and its impact.”

Already, as part of the Hometown Heroes initiative, local O’Charley’s stores have provided free meals and other services to hospitals and other frontline facilities in communities across the country.

In addition, the O’Charley’s food trailer has been mobilized – traveling directly to hospitals, police and fire stations to serve free meals at peak times. For example, this week, the food trailer has served hundreds of free meals to hospital staff and first responders in Nashville and nearby Mt. Juliet, TN, with additional mobile serving locations slated throughout the month of April. For healthcare workers and first responders to receive the 25 percent discount, they simply call their local O’Charley’s store, place their order and then show proper identification to an O’Charley’s team member when picking up their food.

O’Charley’s stores are open for business, providing to-go, curbside, and delivery options. Customers can order online at order.ocharleys.com and simply pull-up to the restaurant where their food will be brought to their car.
