Eat’n Park Receives Restaurant Neighbor Award for Commitment to Community Service

We are very excited to announce that the National Restaurant Association has presented us with its 2011 Restaurant Neighbor Award! What makes this such an honor? Well, two things. First, this is a national award, and we were selected from ALL of the restaurants in the country! Second, and most important, we were selected because of our fundraising efforts through our Caring for Kids campaign – something that our team members have put an enormous amount of time and dedication into. To be nationally recognized for something that is so important to our culture here at Eat’n Park is truly a credit to our entire organization.

Since 1979, our restaurant team members have poured their hearts into raising money for local children’s hospitals. In those 31 years, the campaign has raised more than $7 million for sick children and their families. Yesterday, several of our team members attended the award ceremony in Washington, D.C. to accept the honor on our behalf.  The video below was shown at the event. 

The Restaurant Neighbor Award is given to companies that demonstrate outstanding service efforts in the communities that they serve. The award was developed in 1999 to inspire more restaurant owners and operators to get involved and contribute to their respective communities. We’re happy to say that by that time, we’d already been running our Caring for Kids campaign for 20 years!

Over the years, this campaign has evolved into a program that we are incredibly proud of. There’s one reason for its continued success: our amazing team members. In good economic times and in bad, our team members have rallied together through this campaign to support their communities. Last year, they contributed over 4,000 volunteer hours during the campaign’s five-week span.

While receiving this award is truly an honor, all that really matters is that we’re making a difference in the lives of the people in our communities who support us every day. It’s one way that we live up to our name – “The Place for Smiles.”
