NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Blue Ribbon Holdings, LLC (ABRH), a diversified food services company headquartered in Nashville, announced today three of its brands will participate in an initiative to support The Folded Flag Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) organization that provides educational scholarships and support grants to the spouses and children of fallen service members.
Now through Veterans Day (Nov. 11), O’Charley’s Restaurant & Bar, Village Inn and Bakers Square locations will raise funds for The Folded Flag Foundation. Each guest who donates $5 on their dine-in check will receive a $5 voucher toward a future in-store purchase at the respective participating restaurant brand. The Folded Flag Foundation gives 100 percent of all public donations directly to the scholarship recipients.
“Over the last three years, O’Charley’s guests have donated more than $390,000 to The Folded Flag Foundation,” said Craig Barber, ABRH CEO. “After seeing our guests embrace the effort and recognizing the impact of those efforts on military families, we wanted to expand the opportunity to more of our guests. Extending this fundraiser to Village Inn and Bakers Square means we can help honor the legacy of more fallen heroes by helping their families.”
In addition, each of the three brands will offer veterans and active duty service members a free meal on Veterans Day (Nov. 11). Each brand also offers a military discount of 10 percent off all year long.
“We are excited to build on the success of our relationship with O’Charley’s as we partner with Village Inn and Bakers Square,” said John Coogan, president of The Folded Flag Foundation. “The donations provided from their guests will help us in our mission of providing educational scholarships to the spouses and children of military and government personnel who have lost their lives defending our country and freedom.”
