Nothing says Happy Mother’s Day like a free slice of one of America’s favorite desserts and no brand puts together a special Mother’s Day Fresh Food Bar or makes Strawberry Pies like Shoney’s.

On this upcoming Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 8, 2022 – the iconic American brand will continue its now 75-year tradition of delighting matriarchs and her families across America with its Mother’s Day Fresh Food Bar, all under the supervision of Shoney’s team of culinary experts.

This year’s Mother’s Day Fresh Food Bar will include holiday-themed delicious choices like Shoney’s signature proteins including Crispy Chicken, Sliced Ham with Apples, slow-roasted hand-carved Turkey Breast and Herb-Roasted Salmon. A veritable cornucopia of Shoney’s other freshly-prepared items will include Squash Casserole, Fresh Steamed Broccoli, traditional as well as Creamy and Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans with Peppers, Sweet Potato Casserole, Corn and Macaroni & Cheese.

Of course, Shoney’s keeps piling it on with more, more, more including Dinner Rolls, Poultry Gravy, Cornbread Dressing, Cranberry Sauce, Cabbage Beef Soup, Broccoli Cheddar Soup and another amazing dessert, Peach Cobbler. All of this – and this is not a typo – starting at $14.99. Kids pricing will be $8.99 for ages 5 – 10. Kids 4 & Under will eat for free with adult Fresh Food Bar purchase.

Finally, Shoney’s will say thanks to all moms on their special day as only Shoney’s can: with a free slice of Strawberry Pie, made-in-house daily with delicious, fresh strawberries in a flaky crust mixed with Shoney’s special glaze and finished with whipped topping when they purchase an entrée or partake in the Mother’s Day Fresh Food Bar.

Shoney’s serves more than two million slices of its famous Strawberry Pie each year. The dessert has been a part of Shoney’s rich history and has played a key role in the brand’s recent resurgence, says David Davoudpour, Shoney’s Chairman and CEO.

“Mother’s Day is a special day at Shoney’s and we want to share this holiday with all moms, friends, family and neighbors by providing fresh quality food at a great value with friendly service,” says Davoudpour. “We didn’t create the strawberry yet we have perfected the Strawberry Pie and nothing makes us happier than to serve families across America with great food and treating moms to a delicious and free dessert. Please join us on this special day and as we like to say, Let’s Eat!”
