Free pancakes offered to area service personnel/veterans

STEUBENVILLE – Bob Evans’ officials announced that veterans and active military personnel will receive free all-you-can-eat hotcakes at its restaurants, including the sites in Steubenville and Weirton, on Presidents Day on Monday. All these servicemen and women need do is show a valid military ID.

Veterans are a large portion of Bob Evans’ consumers, according to officials. According to the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, 8 percent of residents in Bob Evans’ home state of Ohio are veterans. And, following encouraging feedback on its all-you-can-eat hotcakes on Veterans Day, Bob Evans decided to repeat the offer for Presidents Day.

“It is because of these brave men and women that we continue to enjoy the freedom our Founding Fathers fought for,” says Bob Evans Restaurants President Randy Hicks. “They deserve our thanks and so we are proud to offer them a free hotcakes breakfast on Presidents’ Day.”

Guests must provide proof of service, including U.S. Uniform Services Identification Card, U.S. Uniform Services Retired Identification Card, Current Leave and Earnings Statement, wearing uniform or Veterans Organization Card.
