Steak ‘n Shake announced a program to recognize and support the thousands of people nationwide who are selflessly working jobs in designated “essential services” who risk their own lives to keep America running.

Effective immediately from now through April 7 at all Steak ‘n Shake restaurants across America, workers in the following industries just need to show a job I.D., such as a business card, badge or name tag, to receive 20 percent off of any Steakburger or Fries. Industries include but are not limited to:

Doctors, nurses, healthcare providers and hospital staff, including maintenance and custodial workers; police and enforcement agencies; EMT, local 911 and fire departments; pharmacy/drugstore; grocery store workers and food distributors; custodian and facilities maintainers; local government officials; bank managers and tellers; restaurant workers; television and newspaper staffers; cashiers, stockroom and loading dock workers; food banks and soup kitchens; city sanitation workers; IT companies and transit workers (airports, trains, subways); Mail and package delivery services including the U.S. Postal Service, Fedex and UPS. 

“These essential employees, including our own Steak ‘n Shake employees, are the backbone of America. These hard-working unsung heroes do their jobs day in and day out and keep our nation’s essential services going,” says Sardar Biglari, CEO of Steak ‘n Shake. “It is our honor and privilege to be able to recognize and reward them with our high-value, quality food at everyday low prices.”

In addition to caring for the country’s essential workers, Steak ‘n Shake is also offering new or extended deals for all Americans during these challenging days:

“Family 4 Pack Meal Deal,” includes 4 Double ‘n Cheese Steakburgers, 4 Small Fries and 4 Sodas, feeding a family of 4 for only $19.99. Available every day by drive-thru or take-out only.
