November 11 – and a 10-percent discount through the end of the year; Tim McGraw Delivers A Special Veterans Day Message

TAMPA, Fla. (November 4, 2013) – Outback Steakhouse® will honor our heroes with a free Bloomin' Onion® and a beverage on November 11 in celebration of Veterans Day. And, because Veterans Day is not long enough to fully express the nation’s gratitude, Outback is honoring all service members with 10% off their meals Nov. 12 through Dec. 31. These offers are open to all active and former military service members with a valid ID. 

“From generation to generation, we honor those who serve and are honored to continue to support our Military Mates,” said Mike Kappitt, Chief Marketing Officer for Outback Steakhouse®. “This is our way to say a big thank you to those who serve us so selflessly every day.”  

For over 20 years, Outback Steakhouse® has proudly supported our nation’s troops. Outback has donated over $2 million to Operation Homefront to assist military families during difficult financial times by providing food assistance, auto and home repair, vision care, travel and transportation, moving assistance, essential home items and financial assistance.

Outback is once again partnering with Tim McGraw to honor those who have served. “I am able to raise my family and provide a sense of security because of the work, the effort and the sacrifices that military members make,” said Tim McGraw.  He has recorded a special message for Veterans Day – reminding everyone to honor service members, their families and those who've made sacrifices to protect our nations freedom.
