Applebee's(R) Serves Up a Meal to Remember

Restaurants Across Canada will Thank Canadian Forces with a Free Entree on Remembrance Day

TORONTO, ONTARIO (Marketwire ) This Remembrance Day, Applebee's Neighbourhood Grill and Bar® is opening its heart and restaurants nationwide to honour Canada's military by offering a delicious entree on the house.

On Wednesday, November 11, the restaurant chain is inviting veterans and active duty Canadian Forces to bring their Canadian Forces ID, along with friends and family, to their neighbourhood Applebee's to enjoy a hearty entree. The brave men and women will have their choice of six dishes from a signature menu including Applebee's House Steak, Three-Cheese Chicken Penne or Chipotle Bacon Burger, all served with the traditional sides.

Not only is this all-day promotion about thanking Canadian Forces, it's a great opportunity for friends and family of military personnel to come and share a "thank you", a laugh and a story face-to-face.

"Remembrance Day is a critically important day across Canada", said Russ Ewy, Applebee's Canadian Marketing Manager. "Applebee's is proud to honour those who have served or are currently serving to protect our freedom. Being able to thank our veterans and the active military members of the Canadian Forces is a privilege. We recognize and honour their bravery and sacrifices."

Last year, a limited number of Applebee's restaurants tested offering the military a free entree on Remembrance Day in Canada. Because the response was so positive, every Canadian Applebee's restaurant is extending the invitation this year.
