Shoney's Ready to Show Dads Lots of Love, Fresh Food, Great Value, Friendly Service and FREE Pecan Pie on Father's Day

America's Dinner Table Features Freshly-Prepared, All-You-Care-To-Eat Selections and Adds Free Dessert for Dads; Sweepstakes to Win Two $500 Home Depot® Gift Cards Also on the Menu

June 15, 2016 // // Nashville, Tenn. - While Dad is sure to love another necktie, America’s Dinner Table has something else in mind to celebrate Father’s Day this year: a home-style spread with freshly-prepared, all-you-care-to-eat selections for the family, and a FREE slice of Pecan Pie for all dads.

In addition to the free dessert, for one day only this Father’s Day - Sunday, June 19 - Shoney’s is honoring dads by pumping up its already incredible food selection with something sure to please every member of the family, including meatloaf, fried fish, garlic shrimp, ribs, fried chicken, home-style vegetables, the Soup, Salad & Fruit Bar and even peach cobbler. Dads will also get a chance to win one of two $500 gift cards from Home Depot®.

The prepared-fresh-in-house selections are all creations by Shoney’s Executive Chef Eric Cleveland and his team of culinary experts. Guests will have many fresh and yummy items to choose from and with prices starting at $11.99 at participating locations, guests will experience what Shoney’s is famous for: value.

Shoney’s has been voted one of the best 8 casual family dining restaurants in the United States in the 2016 Consumer Picks Survey via Nation’s Restaurant News. In the survey, Shoney’s was recognized for having the best rating for value among all family dining chains and also scored well for its service, menu variety and diners being likely to recommend it. The distinction has been the vision of Shoney’s Chairman and CEO Mr. David Davoudpour, who acquired the great American eatery in 2007.

“For nearly 70 years, Shoney’s has been dedicated to serving fresh quality food at a great value with friendly service and on Father’s Day, we’ll cook up something even more special for our valued guests,” said Mr. Davoudpour. “To top off our incredible Shoney’s food selection, we’re going to show all dads some extra love with a free slice of one of America’s favorite desserts: Shoney’s Pecan Pie. You won’t want to be anywhere but Shoney’s on Father’s Day.”

Mr. 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 is still one of the most popular family casual dining concepts in the United States. In addition to nabbing the top value rating in the NRN survey, Shoney’s also scored well for its service, menu variety and diners being likely to recommend it.

In order to get back to what Mr. 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. For more information, visit
