TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants and its 65 Applebee’s restaurants have launched a statewide campaign to recognize Michigan’s dedicated military members in honor of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday.

We’re seeking community nominations beginning Monday, June 26 through Tuesday, July 4 for hometown military heroes who have courageously served or are enlisted in military services. We will select a semi-finalist group of 15 heroes throughout the state.

The public can then vote on our website for their hometown hero out of the 15 semi-finalists from Thursday, July 6 through Sunday, July 9. The five heroes who receive the most public votes will each receive a $250 Visa gift card and a $250 Applebee’s gift card.

All military members who reside within a 10-mile radius of our Applebee’s restaurants are eligible to be one of the five finalists. A list of locations is available on the TSFR website.

Those interested in nominating a military member need to complete the form, including the nominator’s name and contact information, the nominee’s name and city of residence and 200 words or less explaining why the military member should be recognized. Nominators can access the form below or here: bit.ly/ApplebeesHometownHero.

We will also offer veterans and active military personnel 30% off of their meals from Monday, July 3 thru Friday, July 7.

As ongoing supporters of military members, we regularly feature a Military Mondays special every week at our Applebee’s locations, where veterans and active military members can enjoy a 30% discount on their meals. Additionally, we host a variety of fundraising events throughout the year to support the men and women in the military and offer free meals to them on Veterans Day each year.
