SPARTANBURG, S.C. (November 03, 2016) – To thank the nation’s heroes for their courageous service and dedication, Denny’s is inviting active, inactive and retired military personnel to stop by for a free Build Your Own Grand Slam® on Friday, Nov. 11, from 5 a.m. to noon.

At participating locations nationwide, diners with a valid military ID will receive a complimentary Build Your Own Grand Slam®, which includes four delicious breakfast items such as new fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes, eggs cooked to order, sizzling bacon strips, seasonal fruit or hash browns.

“As America’s Diner we love to feed people, and for us there is no greater honor than serving the incredible servicemen and women of our country,” said John Dillon, @DillonJohnW, chief marketing officer for Denny’s. “Each Veterans Day it is important for us to take a moment to celebrate those heroes who tirelessly defend our country, and we hope they’ll join us again this year as we offer them a gesture of our endless appreciation.”

This year Denny’s is extending their support of America’s heroes with a $23,000 donation to Fisher House Foundation, a non-profit organization providing free accommodation for military and veterans’ families during medical treatment. The donation, in the form of Denny’s gift cards, will help feed nearly 1,000 families during their stay at a Fisher House.
