City Barbeque will once again commemorate Veterans Day by treating veterans and troops to a meal. All day on November 11, veterans and military men & women get a free sandwich, two sides and a regular beverage, applicable on either dine-in or carryout orders at every City Barbeque location.

“We’re honored every day by the courage, service, and sacrifice of our military men and women,” says Rick Malir, CEO and founder of City Barbeque. “It’s so important to us here at City Barbeque to show our appreciation—we’re excited to share a meal and our thanks on November 11, and to spend some quality time with those who serve.” 

City Barbeque fundraises throughout the year for veterans’ causes. The company has raised $37,500 to date for the Resurrecting Lives Foundation, who works to support the estimated 20–25 percent of troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with traumatic brain injury. City Barbeque has also made significant donations to Mission 22, a campaign dedicated to awareness and treatment of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries that lead 22 veterans here at home to take their lives every day.
