Offer Includes Donation and Free Meal on July 4
WESTLAKE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
For six weeks this summer travel season, customers are encouraged to
visit TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters TA® and
Petro Stopping Centers®) to support military heroes. Again
this year, TravelCenters is honoring the sacrifice of active military
personnel and veterans by encouraging restaurant guests to order a meal
in support of the National Military Family Association (NMFA), a
nonprofit that works to strengthen and protect military families.
From June 28 to August 5, participating Country Pride and Iron Skillet
locations will donate $1.00 to the NMFA for each entrée ordered from a
select group of menu items. "Nearly one in three truck drivers is a
military veteran," noted Tom O'Brien, president and CEO of
TravelCenters. "These brave individuals served our nation in the armed
forces and continue to serve by safely delivering goods across our
country." In addition, on July 4, active and retired service members
will receive a free meal chosen from a menu of signature favorites.
"As a veteran myself, I am proud our company honors those who have
served our country," said Paul Weaver, GM of the Iron Skillet at the
Petro Atlanta, GA location and a veteran of the United States Navy,
having served 20 years. "This observance allows diners to enjoy a meal
and offer a thanks for the sacrifices made to secure our freedom."
