Bar Louie is saluting veterans by continuing its ongoing support for the U.S. military by inviting vets and active military personnel to enjoy a free meal on Veterans Day, while donating a minimum of $25,000 to Operation Homefront.
From open to close on Sunday, November 11, every Bar Louie throughout the country will offer veterans and military personnel a free burger or flatbread up to a $15 value when they show a valid military I.D. Additionally, through its week-long “Mission for Vets” campaign, from Monday, November 5 to Monday, November 12, Bar Louie invites its guests to donate via an add-on to their checks. All proceeds will be donated to Operation Homefront’s Critical Financial Assistance program to help veterans and their families in immediate need.
In conjunction with the donation pledge and Veterans Day free meal offer, Bar Louie and partner Jim Beam will volunteer to help Operation Homefront assemble holiday meals for military families in November and December nationwide.
“This is the 11th year that Bar Louie has hosted an offer for Veterans Day and our third year partnering with Operation Homefront to ensure the donations are delivered directly where they are most needed. It is one of the most exciting days for us every year,” says Tom Fricke, Bar Louie chief executive officer. “We value our servicemen and women who have put their lives in front of ours to protect and preserve the freedom offered within our country. We have many Bar Louie team members who have served. We’re grateful and want to thank our veterans as they walk through our doors.”
“We are grateful for Bar Louie’s ongoing commitment to our nation’s veterans and military families,” says Jill Eskin-Smith, vice president of Corporate & Foundation Partnerships, Operation Homefront. “Their support will enable us to continue to deliver critical financial assistance to those who need it most. Thank you to Bar Louie and their generous customers for helping us to serve America’s military families.
