Like most of us, you’ve likely heard of the veteran’s discount.
For those who served in the military, many restaurants offer a cheaper meal option or a similar bargain. The idea is that by serving the country, members of the armed services earn certain privileges within their county.
Though it’s nothing too extreme, paying a little bit less for a cheeseburger is a small token of appreciation. Still, this is a tradition that we usually associate with mom and pop style businesses.
Recently, one KFC store in Gallipolis, Ohio decided to get in on the action as well.
The store in question drew reactions online when it posted a sign in its window.
The official store policy was that if a uniformed police officer came in, regardless of the time or the date, they would eat for free.
The idea, of course, was to offer a sign of appreciation to officers in the area by offering them a discount on chicken. Needless to say, the new policy got the small store some attention online.
A Facebook page called Ohio Going Blue posted the image to much discussion.
Although the post got over 10,000 likes and 6,000 shares, some had different opinions.
