WILBRAHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- In the spirit of Veteran's Day celebrations on November 12, Friendly's restaurants invite active members of the military and military veterans to come in and enjoy a complimentary Big-Two-Do Breakfast and coffee until 11:00 am -- as a thank-you for their service.

"The men and women in uniform who serve our country deserve recognition every day -- but especially as we celebrate Veteran's Day, a time when we remember the sacrifices they have made to preserve our freedom," said John Maguire, CEO and President of Friendly's Ice Cream, LLC. "We hope to see these hometown heroes in our local restaurants on November 12, enjoying our Big-Two-Do Breakfast with coffee and an even bigger 'thank-you' from the entire Friendly's family."

To enjoy this Veteran's Day holiday treat, active members of the military and veterans must show their active military ID or honorable discharge card when they order their free Big-Two-Do breakfast and coffee. The breakfast feast for one includes two farm fresh eggs made to order, with two strips of crispy bacon or two sausage links -- plus a choice of two slices of toast, two buttermilk pancakes or two slices of French toast -- all served with a smile and free coffee.

"We hope that a free Big-Two-Do breakfast and coffee is just the beginning of a great day of recognition and remembrance for our service men and women as they celebrate the Veteran's Day holiday," said Maguire.
