Applebee's® Salutes Veterans & Canadian Forces With Free Meal on Remembrance Day

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 1, 2011) - In what has become a neighbourhood tradition, Applebee's restaurants will thank our nation's veterans and active duty Canadian Forces by inviting them to their neighbourhood Applebee's for a free meal on Remembrance Day - Friday, Nov. 11, 2011.

Since Applebee's first began thanking the Canadian military three years ago with a free meal, restaurants have served thousands of Canadian Forces members, from coast to coast, on their day of remembrance and respect.

Applebee's Canada is also launching an online and in-restaurant 'Neighbours Thanking Neighbours' campaign for 2011. Online thank you messages can be shared through the Applebee's Canada Facebook page and Applebee's guests are invited to write messages of thanks to their neighbourhood heroes, on in-restaurant 'Thank You Wall Posters', starting Nov. 1, 2011.

"Remembrance Day is so important to Canadians," said Brian Simowitz, regional general manager – Canada. "We want to offer veterans and active duty Canadian Forces a great meal and an opportunity to connect with fellow service men and women to share stories, meet up with old friends and make new ones. Serving those who serve our country is a true honour. We're looking forward to hosting our heroes again this year."

Applebee's is offering a Remembrance Day menu including some of its signature and favourite items, including:

8 oz House Steak

Chicken Fingers Platter

Double Crunch Shrimp

Fiesta Lime Chicken®

Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger
