March 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // SANTA ANA, Calif. - Flame Broiler, known for serving simple, healthy and delicious rice bowls while on the go, collaborates with the American Heart Association this month in support of the annual Orange County Heart & Stroke Walk. The Orange County-based dining concept has worked with the organization since last year to raise funds to further their combined mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
Flame Broiler will support the American Heart Association at the Orange County Heart & Stroke Walk, occurring on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at Angel Stadium. This walk will aid to raise funds that will make a difference in the Orange County community. The restaurant will have a stationed booth at the event for participants to stop by, in which they will be encouraged to spin a game wheel for offerings of complimentary food and logoed gift items. Flame Broiler’s employees and franchises are also included in the festivities, helping to further support efforts from the restaurant.
The American Heart Association cause aligns with Flame Broiler’s dedication to health and improving quality of life, a concept that is near and dear to CEO and Founder, Young Lee. Having struggled with poor health early in his career, it wasn’t until Lee started correcting his poor eating habits and taking control of his diet that he saw a great impact in his quality of life. This lifestyle change inspired Flame Broiler’s concept and goal of offering better choices for improved eating habits. Knowing what the power of knowledge and informed choices can do, and that the American Heart Association has similar goals, Lee found the idea of a collaboration undeniable.
“Because our top priority as a company is helping those that live in the communities we serve make better lifestyle decisions, this relationship with American Heart Association has allowed us to further our reach” said Young Lee, CEO and Founder of Flame Broiler. “I’m very appreciative for the chance to have worked together and to have made an impact in the lives of so many during the time we partnered.”
The upcoming Heart & Stroke Walk wraps up what has been a congenial collaboration between The Flame Broiler and American Heart Association, with previous collaborations and activities starting back in 2016.
