LIVONIA, Mich., August 11, 2014—Livonia, Mich.-based TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR), a family-owned restaurant group with an expansive portfolio of casual and fast-casual restaurants throughout the state of Michigan, announced today that its 64 Applebee’s restaurants will be giving away 16,000 free kids meals to students in schools throughout the communities they serve.

To celebrate the start of the new 2014-15 school year, each of TSFR’s Applebee’s will partner with a nearby school to give teachers a 10 percent off coupon and donate 250 of its “A is for Applebee’s” free kids meal coupons. The free-meal coupons will be given to students who excel or show improvement in the classroom, as well as demonstrate strong leadership and character traits.
“TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants and our Applebee’s locations are proud to partner with our local schools to ensure a positive kick off to the upcoming school year,” said Pasciak. “We understand the importance a well-balance diet plays in the success of a student’s performance in the classroom, and we hope that this giveaway offers families the opportunity to celebrate their child’s academic achievements with a fun, family-friendly outing.”
Applebee’s Really Hungry and Really Really Hungry kid’s menus offer a variety of healthy food options, including chicken grillers, baby carrots with ranch, steamed broccoli, vanilla yogurt with strawberries, apple dippers with yogurt and more.
In addition to the free kids meals, TSFR’s Applebee’s will host a Teacher Tuesday on August 19 and August 26 to sweeten the start of the school year. This local promotion offers educators with valid school identification a free dessert of their choice with the purchase of a regular priced entrée.
