GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo., October 28, 2013 – In honor of Veterans Day, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers, Inc. (Red Robin)* is giving away one free Tavern Double burger to each veteran or active duty military guest who shows their military ID, proof of service or who are in military uniform on Monday, Nov. 11. Red Robin also supports the Heinz “Our Turn to Serve” Campaign for the second straight year to assist in raising funds for Wounded Warrior Project®. In addition, Red Robin will make a donation of $10,000 to Wounded Warrior Project.
Red Robin is proud to offer America’s veterans and active duty service members a guest favorite, Red’s Tavern Double and Bottomless Steak Fries®**, for free on Veterans Day. The burger includes two classic-sized, fire-grilled beef patties topped with melted American cheese, fresh lettuce, tomato and Red’s Secret Tavern Sauce on a toasted sesame bun, served with Bottomless Steak Fries, which means free refills!
Nothing goes better with Bottomless Steak Fries than Heinz Ketchup®, and Red Robin will also celebrate Veterans Day by participating in a national Heinz Ketchup campaign that raises money and awareness for Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.
The campaign encourages guests to use their smartphone to scan a QR (quick response) code on the back of any Heinz Ketchup bottle at Red Robin restaurants. The scanned code leads to a website where guests can write their own “thank you” message to an active duty or retired military service member. Participants also have the option to email a “thank you” to a personal friend or family member who has served in the military by entering an email address. Heinz will donate $1 to Wounded Warrior Project for each “thank you” and an additional 57 cents for each message shared on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram through the campaign, up to $250,000.
