FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - May 4, 2012 - Gala Corporation has been selected as one of six state winners of the 2012 Restaurant Neighbor Award, presented by the National Restaurant Association. The awards raise awareness of the industry's contributions to local communities throughout the country, as well as inspire owners and operators to get involved within their respective neighborhoods.

Gala Corporation, comprised of 25 restaurant units including Applebee’s and Famous Dave’s barbeque, is deeply dedicated to supporting local organizations. In the last year alone, Gala Corporation donated more than one million dollars to organizations that range from reading clubs and libraries, to churches and sports teams. One such effort benefits military veterans. Employees and guests were encouraged to write letters to troops overseas and send them with bottles of Famous Dave’s World Famous BBQ Sauce. In addition, last year the company served more than 9,200 active and retired veterans on Veteran’s Day.

“What we do is serve high quality, fresh, delicious food at fantastic values,” said Anand Gala, CEO and president, Gala Corporation. “Who we are is a company of enthusiastic philanthropists. As the quote says, ‘with great power comes great responsibility,’ and we believe at our core that we have a responsibility to give back at every opportunity.”

Finalists were flown to Washington, D.C., earlier this month for the presentation of awards. For more information about Gala Corporation, visit www.galacorp.com. To find the Applebee’s or Famous Dave’s location nearest you, visit www.applebees.com or www.famousdaves.com.
