This Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar will proudly give thanks to America’s military heroes. Applebee’s invites all veterans and active-duty military across the country to visit their local restaurant on Veterans Day to enjoy a complimentary full-size entrée from an exclusive menu created just for them.

Since 2008, Applebee’s restaurants across the country have opened their doors and welcomed veterans and active-duty military, serving them millions of free meals in honor of their service.

“This Veterans Day we invite our veterans and active-duty military to visit their local Applebee’s restaurant to enjoy a free meal on us,” said John Cywinski, president at Applebee’s. “This is our 12th consecutive year of honoring those who have served our country in this way, and we’re proud to be able to do so in all of our Applebee’s neighborhoods nationwide.”

In addition to serving free meals to those who have served, the Applebee’s family shows its gratitude towards our American heroes by offering veteran employment recruiting programs, sending essential items to active military service members overseas, delighting hometown heroes with recognition parties and Applebee’s gift cards, and partnering with organizations to repair or build homes for veterans in need.

Complimentary meals from the Veterans Day menu will be available for dine-in only at more than 1,650 Applebee's locations nationwide. For more information, please visit applebees.com/vetsday.
