In honor of the men and women who have served in the U.S. military, the restaurant chain will offer a choice of one of eight Mr. Pita sandwiches FREE – a regular-sized, classic pita (Italian, Ham and Cheese, Greek, Turkey, BLT, Tuna Salad, Veggie and Club).
"We felt it was important to provide a small gesture of gratitude to the many men and women who served in our U.S.armed forces," said Casey Askar, chairman and chief executive officer of Askar Brands. "We are proud to be giving back to Michigan’s veterans who made sacrifices in order to keep our nation safe.”
Veterans (with proper proof of service) who visit participating Mr. Pita locations may order their choice of sandwiches throughout the day.
Based in Commerce Township, Mich., Mr. Pita was founded in 1993 and today operates 31 locations in Michigan, New York, Texas and Colorado. Additionally, the chain operates Pita Wagons that visit work sites to provide Mr. Pita foods. In 2008, Mr. Pita sandwiches were voted “Michigan’s Best” in an annual survey of readers of the Detroit News.
