KISSIMMEE, Fla. (Sept. 1, 2016) – Denny’s is proud to announce it will be a sponsor of the 2016 Tom Joyner Family Reunion this Labor Day weekend. The weekend-long celebration—held Sept. 1-5 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center—is a free event to the public featuring concerts, seminars and an expo.
“Denny’s is proud to sponsor the Tom Joyner Family Reunion for a second year in a row,” said John Miller, Denny’s president and chief executive officer. “Denny’s is America’s Diner and in that role we are committed to celebrating all of the families and communities in which we serve. Each year, the Tom Joyner Family Reunion offers us an opportunity to share in this great event and we look forward to being a part of this year’s expo.”
As a part of the family reunion expo, guests can experience the Denny’s brand in a variety of fun and exciting ways. Inside the Denny’s booth, patrons will have the opportunity to sign up for Denny’s Rewards, which allows them to stay up to date with latest news from Denny’s and receive exclusive coupons throughout the year. Attendees that register for Denny’s Rewards during the reunion weekend will receive their choice of a free Frisbee, drawstring bag, hand-held fan or other great prizes. Guests will also be able to snap photos with Denny’s mascots from the brand's famous web video series, “The Grand Slams®”.
On Saturday and Sunday, event-goers can get in on even more Denny’s fun by taking a free shuttle to one of the neighboring Denny’s restaurants, where they can dine in and enjoy their favorite Denny’s dish, like the all-new Buttermilk Pancakes.
Guests in need of relaxation or a space in which to socialize are invited to the Denny’s lounge area—which will feature plenty of comfortable seats and couches—at any time during the reunion.
