Shoney’s is thanking our nation’s veterans and troops with a free All-American Burger in what has become a beloved tradition on Veterans Day, this year on November 11.
“For nearly 70 years, Shoney’s has been an American treasure and has always been a ‘Welcome Home’ sign to America’s military,” CEO David Davoudpour says. “It’s one of our favorite days of the year as we get to honor our veterans and troops with a free burger as we thank those who protect our very freedom. Veterans and troops, on your special day, and every day, we salute you.”
Davoudpour says service members will be treated to Shoney’s Signature favorite All-American Burger, a fresh, never frozen, hand-pattied, grain-fed, 100 percent ground beef, cooked to order burger, served on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles, and mayonnaise.
“It’s the best burger on the planet named after the greatest country on earth,” continues Davoudpour, “And it has been a guest favorite for generations.”
Since acquiring the great American eatery in 2007, Davoudpour has been on a driven and spirited mission to reinvigorate and revitalize Shoney’s, a family-friendly, southern-style restaurant brand. Shoney’s is one of the first and has always been one of the most popular family casual dining concepts in the United States. Shoney’s also served as a popular post-WWII family destination when it began serving guests decades ago. Davoudpour personally sees that an American flag flies proudly in front of his Shoney’s restaurants.
In order to get back to what Davoudpour confidently calls Shoney’s “Glory Days,” the brand is now growing through franchising following an extensive revitalization effort. Shoney’s is offering franchising opportunities to qualified single and multi-unit candidates.
