November 03, 2016 // Franchising.com // NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The better burger concept, Back Yard Burgers, is giving back to those who serve our country in a big way. On Veteran’s Day – Friday, November 11 – Back Yard Burgers is offering a free Back Yard Classic Burger to all active duty service members and veterans who show their military ID or are in uniform.
The Back Yard Classic Burger is a third pound 100% Black Angus beef topped with garden-fresh lettuce, lush tomatoes, crunchy dill pickles, ketchup, mayo and mustard. Cheese and other toppings can be added for a small cost.
