Thanking Veterans - Restaurants Offer Specials - 2020 Edition

Posted by Robin Gagnon on Nov 9, 2020 2:19:49 PM

 

Please remember to thank a Veteran this week as we observe Veteran's Day.  It is a day to honor all of those who served our country so bravely.  This is a special year as 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. There were more than 16 million Americans that served in that single war and many other conflicts that have taken place since the Allies led us to a victory that day. 

We Sell Restaurants has assembled a list of the restaurants that are offering courtesy discounts or free meals to veterans and active duty military personnel.  While Veterans Day is a special single day, there is no reason we can't choose any day to honor those that served to protect us all. 

Restaurant honor Veterans 2020

These restaurants, despite facing tremendous struggles of their own this year, are offering up savings and discounts for men and women who served.  For the Restaurant Brokers at We Sell Restaurants, we continue to be in awe of the strength, courage and determination of this industry to survive and thrive despite the COVID19 conditions. 

Active duty military and veterans with ID will get free or discounted meals at the following restaurants.  Please make sure to confirm that information before ordering.  Offers usually do not include alcohol or gratuity and can’t be combined with other discounts or coupons. 

If you know of others, post them in the comments section of our blog. Let’s get the word out so our veterans get a meal on the house!  If you see a restaurant offering a deal, be sure and thank them for their amazing generosity in this extremely tough year.
