PANAMA CITY, FL (Nov. 7, 2016) – For the last 40 years, Bennigan’s has honored the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces with special discounts, free meals and even offers a reduced franchise fee for qualified veterans.

In honor of Veterans Day, the recently reopened Bennigan’s at the Panama City Mall will continue the tradition by inviting veterans to eat free from Nov. 11-13. Any veteran who presents a valid military ID when placing their order will enjoy a free meal, up to $18, with the purchase of any menu item of equal or greater value.

Tax and gratuity not included. Not valid on alcoholic beverages or with any other offer. Dine-in and carry-out orders are eligible. Offer valid at Panama City Mall location only. Expires Nov. 13, 2016.

Bennigan’s is located at 2100 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Panama City. The corporate restaurant – owned and operated by Legendary Restaurant Brands LLC and its CEO, Paul Mangiamele – features such signature Bennigan’s favorites as the World Famous Monte Cristo, Oh, Baby™ Back Ribs, the Turkey O’Toole, the Big Irish double-decker hamburger and a wide assortment of handcrafted specialty drinks.

“As a proud veteran myself, I have always been very passionate about recognizing the brave men and women who serve our country,” said Mangiamele. “And while nothing we can do can adequately repay them for their service and sacrifice, we can offer a genuine word of thanks and a delicious meal, with our compliments. Oorah!”

The Panama City Mall restaurant offers 16 beers on tap, 12 HD TVs and a climate-controlled indoor patio that can double as a VIP meeting room. The restaurant is pleased to offer a 15% discount to all active duty and retired members of the U.S. military as well as local police, firefighters and other first responders every day, year-round.
