O’Charley’s Honors Veterans as Part of Week-Long Veterans Day Celebration

Participating O’Charley’s restaurants will offer free $9.99er meals to veterans on Monday, November 9 leading up to 150th Veteran Celebration.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - October 26, 2015 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - O’Charley’s Restaurant + Bar locations across the country will offer free $9.99er meals to veterans on Monday, November 9. All veterans who show their military ID can choose from one of nine $9.99er meals including O’Charley’s Famous Chicken Tenders & Twisted Chips, Bayou Shrimp Pasta and Chicken Fried Steak, among other meals. Restaurant participation may vary by location.

In addition to free meals, veterans will continue to enjoy Free Pie Wednesday on November 11, choosing from signature pies such as Double-Crust Peach, Southern Pecan, French Silk, Country Apple and Ooey Gooey Caramel. O’Charley’s restaurants bake fruit pies and freshly prepare their own whipping cream in-house every day.

O’Charley’s has a longstanding history of honoring veterans and active duty soldiers. Locations nationwide have undergone a reimaging process that features refurbished store interiors and exteriors, a new brand mark and updated menu items. O’Charley’s is continuing to revitalize restaurants around the country.

As part of the remodeled restaurants’ reopening celebrations, O’Charley’s has recognized 149 veterans and community leaders in the Hometown Hero program. On Thursday, November 12 the Nashville O’Charley’s will host the 150th Veteran Celebration recognizing the 150th individual to be named a Hometown Hero.

“Our founder Charley Watkins was a marine veteran himself and over the years we have been able to support and honor our veterans through a variety of programs,” said O’Charley’s President Ned Lidvall. “This is our way to continue his legacy by honoring the men and women who serve our country.”

Lidvall will accept the Department of Defense Support of the Guard and Reserve award on Wednesday, November 4 for the company’s efforts over the last several years that have supported veterans.

O’Charley’s will continue honoring local heroes and providing full reimages of the classic, casual dining experience the Nashville-based restaurant chain has been serving the American dining public since 1971. The comprehensive O’Charley’s revitalization plan was orchestrated by new leadership at American Blue Ribbon Holdings, who acquired the restaurant chain in May of 2012.
