"We've been an integral part of American history for the past 70 years," says David Davoudpour, Shoney's Chairman and CEO. "From our humble beginnings in 1947 as a drive-in restaurant in Charleston, West Virginia to our national growth as a popular family destination, we treat our guests to freshly-prepared high-quality food at a great value with friendly service every single day. Our '7-7-7' promotion is our way of celebrating our heritage and showing appreciation to our valued guests – not just for one day or seven days, but for seven weeks. As we've said for seven decades, 'Let's Eat®'"

Shoney's was voted one of the best eight family dining restaurants in the United States in the 2016 Consumer Picks Survey via Nation's Restaurant News. In the survey, Shoney's was recognized for having the best rating for value among all family dining chains and also scored well for its service, menu variety and diners being likely to recommend it.

Shoney's is one of the first and has always been one of the most popular family casual dining concepts in the United States.
