I say Bravo to the Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in Ohio for honoring LEO’s.
It has long been an unwritten policy of fast-food franchises and convenience stores to offer perks to first responders, such as free coffee or lunches. It is good public relations and has the added benefit of fostering a good relationship with law enforcement and other emergency services personnel, should these businesses ever need to avail themselves of services. It certainly is not “quid pro quo,” but it is smart.
One Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in Ohio has taken that time-honored policy and made it public. They recently put up a sign on their entry doors declaring that cops eat free every day. And the response they have gotten will blow your mind.
In light of the current public debate about law enforcement and their communities, a KFC franchise manager in Gallipolis, Ohio has decided to make a very public statement in support of area police officers.
The restaurant has placed a handwritten sign on their front door that reads:
“All uniformed police officers eat free everyday.”
