CEO David Davoudpour and Shoney’s Say ‘Thank You’ to America’s Heroes by Offering Shoney’s Signature Favorite to All Veterans and Active Duty Military Members on Friday, November 11
October 21, 2016 // Franchising.com // NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nothing says “Thank You” like a great burger and Shoney’s will prove it again, as the iconic all-American restaurant brand will thank our nation’s veterans and troops with a FREE All-American Burger™ in what has become a beloved tradition on Veterans Day, this year on Friday, November 11, 2016.
“For nearly 70 years, Shoney’s has been an American treasure and has always been a ‘Welcome Home’ sign to America’s military,” said Mr. Davoudpour. “It’s one of our favorite days of the year as we get to honor our veterans and troops with a free burger as we thank those who protect our very freedom. Veterans and troops, on your special day, and every day, we salute you.”
Mr. Davoudpour says service members will be treated to Shoney’s Signature favorite All-American Burger, a fresh, never frozen, hand-pattied, grain-fed, 100% ground beef, cooked to order burger, served on a toasted bun with lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickles and mayonnaise.
“It’s the best burger on the planet named after the greatest country on earth,” continued Mr. Davoudpour, “And it has been a guest favorite for generations.”
Earlier this year, Shoney’s was voted one of the best 8 family dining restaurants in the United States in the 2016 Consumer Picks Survey via Nation’s Restaurant News, placing #6 overall.

Since acquiring the great American eatery in 2007, Mr. Davoudpour has been on a driven and spirited mission to reinvigorate and revitalize Shoney’s, a family-friendly, southern-style restaurant brand.
