Max’s Honors US Military with Special Discount

Dear Friends,

Memorial Day is here, and all of us at Max’s would like to pay our respects to the brave men and women who have given their lives to protect our beautiful country. Max’s would be honored to have any current or former soldiers come celebrate the holiday with us. That’s why we are offering a special discount for anyone with a military ID. Bring in your military ID on Memorial Day weekend and receive 5$ off your meal.

But being a proud soldier of this country is about a lot more than just receiving praise. We at Max’s Restaurant want to take a moment to tell you why it is important for us that we get to celebrate this Memorial Day with the brave men and women who serve this country.

Here’s how we are inspired by all of those who serve this country proudly.

Leadership: Both on and off the battlefield, soldiers make great leaders, and Max’s knows the importance of leading by example. Did you know that 32 out of the 45 presidents have served in our US military before office? That’s why Max’s is proud to hire and to serve our brave men and women.

Dedication: Perhaps no job takes more dedication than to proudly serve this beautiful country. Max’s is inspired by our men and women’s dedication, and we strive to return that dedication back to our customers.
Sacrifice: Memorial Day is about honoring those who have sacrificed their lives for this country. But it’s not just those who have paid the ultimate price that have made sacrifices. That’s why this Memorial Day weekend, Max’s would be honored to spend the day with our proud veterans and give back to them.
Service: For soldiers, serving the country means laying everything on the line and protecting our home at all costs. For Max’s, it means going above and beyond to treat our customers right and to be respectful of the citizens that make this country what it is by giving them the best service possible.
Bravery: No single word encapsulates our soldiers better than the word bravery. Max’s tries to incorporate this bravery into our own business by standing up for what’s right no matter the consequences.
These are just a few reasons why Max’s Restaurant would be honored to have any of our armed forces join us on Memorial Day weekend. Be sure to bring any form of military ID to receive special offers and discounts. Don’t want to have to wait to be seated? Make your reservation today by calling (805) 898-9121. Or if you have any questions or comments click here.
