America’s Diner introduces month-long “Free Pancakes for Kids” promotion; Also kicks off sixth annual No Kid Hungry campaign in September
Spartanburg, SC (RestaurantNews.com) Starting today, Denny’s is making it easier and more affordable than ever for families to enjoy its all-new pancakes thanks to its “Free Pancakes for Kids” offer. During the month of September, Denny’s youngest guests will have a free opportunity to see if its new stacks—made with fresh buttermilk, real eggs and a hint of vanilla – really are better than before.
Denny’s delicious pancakes—now with 50 percent more fluffy goodness – are featured throughout the kids menu and for the first time are offered in variety of new kid-sized signature dishes, including the Jr. Cinnamon Pancakes, Jr. Strawberries & Cream Pancakes and Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Kids ages 10 and under can enjoy Denny’s pancakes in any of these dishes for free every day in September from 4-10 p.m. with the purchase of one adult entrée at participating locations.
“With families getting back into groove of the school year, the month of September is the perfect opportunity for fans of Denny’s to take advantage of our Free Pancakes for Kids offer,” said John Dillon, @DillonJohnW, chief marketing officer for Denny’s. “Not only is this a great way for our guests, including kids, to try our new pancakes, but it is also our way of inviting families to enjoy breakfast for dinner at an affordable price.”
In addition to its Free Pancakes for Kids promotion, Denny’s will also partner with No Kid Hungry® in September to raise money to help end childhood hunger. To-date, Denny’s has been able to donate more than $3.3 million to No Kid Hungry and will look to make an even great impact on the cause this year with the continued support of its team members and guests.
“Share My Strength’s No Kid Hungry program is one of the most recognizable annual anti-hunger campaigns in the nation and we’re proud to have the ability to partner with this worthy organization for the sixth year in a row,” said Dillon. “At Denny’s, we know a meal is essential to a child’s well-being and can be directly linked to their academic, health and economic futures. We remain committed to working together with our team members and guests to combat childhood hunger and hope to see even more success this year.”
Now through Oct. 2, nearly 1,600 Denny’s restaurants nationwide will join the fight to end childhood hunger with all proceeds going directly to No Kid Hungry. Through No Kid Hungry, every $1 donation received provides a child with 10 healthy meals, making even the smallest of donations impactful. To thank guests for their generous donations, Denny’s will provide a discount coupon redeemable at participating locations upon their next visit.
This year, Denny’s will also donate $1 to No Kid Hungry every time the hashtag #ShareMySlam is shared on Twitter and Instagram, giving guests another way to help this important cause. Guests may also contribute to the campaign with a monetary donation of their choice at dennysnokidhungry.com.
