Applebee’s Pays Tribute to Working Parents

With Free Meals for Kids This Labor Day.

While millions of Americans enjoy the long holiday weekend, thirty-nine participating Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants in northern and central New Jersey will be hard at work. Families who dine at Applebee’s anytime on Monday, September 5, will receive up to two free Kids’ Meals with each adult entrée purchase. The free meals are valid for children ages 12 and under, on any Applebee’s “Kids’ Menu” entrée, dine-in only.

“Labor Day is a time when families and friends get together to celebrate a well-earned day off and the unofficial end of summer,” said Kevin Coughlin, Director of Operations for Applebee’s New Jersey. “For all of us at Applebee’s, we wanted to honor those who work hard every day by offering an opportunity to kick-back, enjoy a great meal and save.”

Kids can choose one free entrée from the following options: Chicken Tenders, Mini Cheeseburgers, Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Kraft® Macaroni & Cheese, Pasta with Marinara Sauce or Hot Dog. The meal also includes a choice of side dish and soft drink or milk.

While the kids enjoy lunch or dinner from the Kids’ Menu, adults may want to take advantage of Applebee’s popular 2 for $20 which includes a choice of two entrees, including the newest additions–Bruschetta Chicken and Chicken Fettuccine Carbonara, and an appetizer to share.
