Happy 65th Birthday Shoney’s!

 Happy 65th Birthday Shoney’s!

Shoney’s was one of the first family casual dining concepts in the United States. Its roots trace back to 1947, when Alex Shoney Schoenbaum opened the Parkette Drive-In next to his fathers bowling alley in Charleston, W.Va. Today, Nashville-based Shoneys is a favorite family casual dining destination, with approximately 200 restaurants in 17 states across the South and Southeast, reaching everyone from growing young families to retirees. The Shoney’s Homecoming coupon for a 65-cent Barqs root beer float is Shoney’s way of saying thank you to longtime patrons while welcoming a new generation to enjoy the Shoney’s experience.

The Coca-Cola bell soda glass has been part of the heritage of The Coca-Cola Company since 1929. Like the famous contour bottle for Coca-Cola, the Bell Soda Glass was destined to become forever associated with Coca-Cola worldwide. Still used at many soda fountains, these glasses are visible proof of the timeless popularity of the worlds most-valuable brand.

My favorite root beer float recipe is to use chocolate (Mmmmm!) ice cream & place 2-3 scoops in a glass cup/mug.  Then slowly pour root beer over the ice cream.  Stir it up a bit & enjoy!  Traditionally, vanilla ice cream is used, and you can get a vanilla root beer float at any participating Shoney’s restaurant.  See details below for a special offer.

Beginning Nov. 1 and continuing daily until November 30, 2012, participating Shoney’s restaurants will be distributing 65th anniversary Shoney’s Homecoming coupons to every dine-in breakfast guest. Customers can use the coupon with their next dine-in lunch or dinner purchase of $5.00 or more.

Head over to Shoney’s to redeem the 65-cent root beer float made with the uniquely bold taste of Barqs Root Beer and the distinctive Coca-Cola Bell Soda Glass while supplies of the limited-edition fountain glasses last. (note: The Shoney’s Homecoming coupon expires at the close of business on November 30, 2012. If an individual Shoney’s restaurant runs out of the Coca-Cola Bell Soda Glasses before November 30, its participation in the promotion including the 65-cent root beer float offer will end at that time.)
