All First Responders eat free 9/2-8; company pledges $10,000 donation to J.J. Watt Flood Relief Fund
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Hurricane Harvey has taken a catastrophic toll on the Texas Gulf Coast, and with 20 Pei Wei restaurants in the area, the Pan-Asian fast-casual brand has seen firsthand the devastation caused by the storm and subsequent flooding.
To help aid in the recovery efforts, Pei Wei has been delivering food to shelters in Houston and surrounding areas. The company is also pledging a $10,000 direct donation to The JJ Watt Foundation to assist in its efforts to support flood victims. In addition, Pei Wei is inviting all Houston-area First Responders to eat free* at their restaurants all day Sept. 2 through Sept. 8.
(Free meal includes regular size entrée and a non-alcoholic beverage. Applicable ID must be presented at the time of redemption. Valid for uniformed personnel, or with applicable first responder ID. Visit www.peiwei.com/terms for eligible items, restrictions and details.)
“This natural disaster really hit home for all of us here at Pei Wei because we have so many team members and loyal guests throughout the Houston area,” CEO John “J.” Hedrick. “We know The JJ Watt Foundation will use our donation to help in the best way possible and we wanted to do what we could for the brave First Responders that have so selflessly battled the floods to save and assist our neighbors in need.”
