On Monday, November 11th, 2019, Veterans Day, the previously purchased Bud Lights were served to Veterans and Active-Duty Military (21 years and older), providing an added bonus to the deserving men and women of the military.
"Veterans Day is one of the best days at Applebee's. We have a chance to give back to those great men and women who have dedicated their lives to serve our great country." Said Howard Hohman, COO, RMH Franchise. "At RMH, our Team rallies together and amplifies this day to pay tribute to all their local Veterans.
