Chili Dogs for Veterans
Wienerschnitzel restaurants will honor veterans and active duty military personnel with valid military ID or uniform with a free chili dog meal on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. The meal includes a free chili dog, small fries and 20-ounce drink.
“As an iconic American brand dedicated to our mission of ‘serving food to serve others,’ all of us here at Wienerschnitzel are proud to offer those who selflessly protect our great country a small token of our appreciation,” said Doug Koegeboehn, Wienerschnitzel’s chief marketing officer. “We are hoping to say ‘thank you’ to as many hard-working service men and women as possible on Veterans Day, and encourage veterans and active military to head to their local Wienerschnitzel on November 11 to enjoy a world famous chili dog, fries and Pepsi on the house.”
The Clovis Weinerschnitzel is at 555 W. Shaw Ave. near Helm Ave.
